Somewhere in the Rust Belt, the aroma of freshly seasoned beef searing on the flat top fills the air of a bustling tavern, bar and grill, or diner. The hunger inducing scent is accompanied by a symphony of random, normal kitchen and restaurant sounds. A hurried waitress passes by to deliver another table’s order. Two burger platters so large that a steak knife is used to hold each sandwich together. An enchanting preview of things to come, because… it’s burger night for the Burger Guyz! What started in 2009 as five guys going out for a burger once a month, has morphed into a quest to uncover the elite burgers of Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. Burgers will be dissected, their components scrutinized and side dishes devoured! This evening is just the latest chapter in our journey that is mapped out by the suggestions we receive here, or on Facebook. Don’t keep your favorite burger joint a secret! Let’s hear about it! Please feel free to post your civil reviews and comments on any of our reviews or stories.

  1. I think you should try the burgers at The Ice House Inn. They also have a Buddah Burger Challenge that I highly reccommend. Thanks for your time

  2. Mike’s Penn Grille in Salem, Ohio has a 6lb burger challenge. 6lbs of beef, coleslaw, french fries and what seems to be a full loaf of bread for the bun.

  3. Hugger-Mugger Tasty Recipes in New Castle, Pa. has the M.S.(Mother Ship) Gut Buster. It’s two 8 oz. Angus burgers (1 lb!!) with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion & pickles. It’s all speared together with a knife. Not any kind of challenge, but just an awesome burger!

  4. You need to go to Montana Rib and Chop House in Hermitage ,Pa. Best burger and food anywhere You will tell me I am right , I am positive!

  5. I really think you should try the burgers out of the kitchen inside the Dash Inn from the Dine n Dash. They have a burger called the Beelzeburger, if you can finish it.in 45 minutes you get your photo on the wall and a t- shirt. If heat is not what you prefer they have delicious stuffed burgers wrapped in steak or try the Quadruple Bypass.

  6. I am so happy you loved your burgers at Montana Rib and Chop House in Hermitage,Pa. What a fantastic review you wrote and I knew you would say that you would return! Our very place to eat.

  13. I have to tell ya, the BEST place around here to get a GREAT tasting burger is Moe’s Place on Standard Ave. in Masury. Jason runs the kitchen there and hands down makes the best tasting burger I have ever eaten. He kicks butt on the grill. Stop over you won’t regret it!!

  14. I love the site. I have a burger book I have been writing in from many places I have had burgers from. I am from Western pa. I must say BOB’s place in Jamestown pa has a Bobby burger that is the best in my book. A close second is a 10 inch mountain burger front summit fireside lodge and grill in Ridgeway pa. That’s10inches high.

  15. Hi, we just got a crowd of out of towners doing a golf tournament here at moes. Somehow they heard of us and googled to find us. We were hoping it was burgerguyz. They didn’t leave disappointed. There were 8 of them.

  17. Best burger I’ve had lately is at The Station Grille at Melillo’s tavern in Loweville. quite a few gourmet burgers on the menu. Their Pizza is out of this world also.

  18. Come check out the burgers at Tracks Inn ..Again in Cortland..seriously the best I’ve had..blows The Lake Tavern away..

  19. Hi guys! Do the burgers have to be on the every day menu to qualify? I tried calling one of the businesses to order the winning burger and it is not on their permanent menu. I was told it was made for the event and is sometimes run on special. Just a curiosity because it would seem like anyone can make up a burger that isn’t true to what they offer. Thanks for the reviews! Loving some burgers!!!

    1. Thanks for following us Amanda! The Burgers can be on the menu but it is not required. We are encouraging culinary creativity from our local restaurants and taverns and their chefs.
