The Midnight Special at Leadbelly Burgers, Chicago, IL
You can't talk about the best burgers in the United States of America without mentioning Chicago. Once the meatpacking epicenter of the nation, Chicago has long been a city that knows how to make a burger, and Leadbelly Burgers is currently the reigning king of doing just that. You can go with the classic Leadbelly, with homemade sriracha pickles, or, if you're feeling a bit more daring, you can try the Midnight Special, piled with chili cheese Fritos. The Good Night Irene is a beef patty topped with fried crab cake, pico de gallo, and remoulade sauce, and would probably make the blues singer proud.
