Chefs are doing everything they can to make their burgers stand out, with surprising toppings like pastrami, smoked mayo and pulled pork. Here, the most over-the-top burgers.
The Porky Burger
Meat-on-meat burger pioneer and superstar chef Michael Symon offers the Porky, a burger topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, barbecue sauce and bacon. While the burger joint has a casual vibe, Symon’s standards remain as high as ever in the kitchens. “We have a truck bring in Pat LaFrieda meat from New York four times a week, because no one here can supply that kind of quality,” says Symon. “We cook 1,000 burgers a day and take the temperature in every single one.” bspotburgers.com
