There’s no shortage of breweries and wineries in Traverse City. You can add mouthwatering burgers to that list with these essential burger spots. Which one is your favorite?
Sleder’s Family Tavern
Kiss the moose for good luck, then kiss your burger craving goodbye at Sleder’s Family Tavern. Enjoy a classic half-pound Sleder Burger or green olive laden Olive Burger.
Don’s Drive-In does it right with their 1/2 lb. Big D Burger. This burger is so beefy and tasty, the bun can barely keep up. Dine in your car or grab a table inside for a throwback diner experience.
When a burger craving strikes, Bubba’s is sure to satisfy. Their 1/2 lb. burgers are available with classic toppings, or you can get wacky with creations like the Hawaii 5-0 featuring pineapple, ham, and jalapenos.
J & S Hamburg
At J & S Hamburg, the burgers have been great since 1938. Late night hours on the weekend ensure your craving will always be covered.
What’s there to say about Slabtown Burgers that hasn’t already been said? This praise-worthy burger shack should be on the bucket list of any burger lover. We love the Slabtown Special with its two chargrilled patties, cheese, grilled onions, and namesake sauce.
A newcomer to Traverse City’s dining scene, Bushi serves delicious burgers and fresh sushi under one roof. The charred flavor they achieve on their thin burger patties is exceptional, so we recommend keeping it simple with the Double Cheeseburger.
The Olive Burger at Little Bohemia has been featured by famed culinary heavyweights, but locals know best. This best selling burger is highlighted by sliced olives, melted Swiss cheese, and special mayo.
