This Chapel Hill establishment serves a burger that tops a new country-wide ranking based on millions of reviews.

America is a nation of excellent burgers—and quite a few mediocre ones, but they're still burgers so it's fine—and one burger, in particular, has been recognized as the country's very best. 

According to a new list from TripAdvisor that analyzed millions of user reviews and rankings, a burger from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is the top burger in the States. Al’s Burger Shack, which is located right by the University of North Carolina's campus, came in at number one with their signature burger: the “Bobo Chili Cheeseburger,” which is topped with chili sauce, coleslaw, onion, yellow mustard, and American cheese. (Their rosemary fries are quite popular, too.)

As for the rest of the list, the burgers span the country, with a surprising zero of the top ten burgers hailing from the New York area, or Oklahoma, land of the glorious Oklahoma Onion Burger. We are also shocked and saddened that more TripAdvisor users don't recognize the glory that is Emily's burger, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
