Everyone knows that nothing beats a great big burger. And Long Island has no lack of creative offerings. Here’s a list of some burger joints on Long Island that will satisfy your hunger when you get a hankering for a big, juicy burger.

 

All-American

Massapequa

There’s just something about a burger joint that’s been family owned and operated since 1963 that gets us right in the red, white, and blue.

 

Black Label Burger

Westbury

Different burgers all tagged with different colored labels. Try the Black Label. Prime Beef with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, label sauce all on a potato bun. They recommend a Southampton Double White beer to pair it with.

 

Burger Bar

Massapequa

The Belmont Steaks stands out on a menu filled with great choices. It’s 8 ounces of dry, aged beef blend topped with cheddar, onion rings and horseradish sauce. Served on a pretzel bun. We picked it to win.

 

The Burger Shack

Coram

Try their Burger From Hell, if you dare. Jalapenos, habanera sauce, jack cheese, lettuce and tomato. If you’re weak get a drink to go with it.

 

The Burger Spot

Garden City

Can’t decide between the Parisian with cheddar, bacon, and egg or the Argentinian with pepper jack, red onion, and chimichuri sauce or the Belgian with blue cheese sauce, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and red onion... Just kidding we got them all!

 

 

Dirty Burger

Plainview

According to Chef Ian Russo, Dirty Burger uses a signature spice blend in their burgers. “And at the end we add honey to the burger,” he said. The restaurant was just featured on Burgers, Brews & Que.

 

Go Burger

Mount Sinai & Ridge

Trust us. Go. (And they serve wine and beer.)

 

Gourmet Burger Bistro

Port Jefferson

Get their famous Triple Smoke Burger. But really most everything is good. Take a walk across the way to Port Jefferson Brewery for a great beer after, or before, or both.

 

Joe’s Sirloin Burger Grill

Bohemia

Build your own sirloin burger at Joe’s.

 

Inferno the Restaurant

Sound Beach

They make old fashioned hand crafted burgers (and specialty sandwiches) from around the country. Pack our bags.

 

 

Local Burger Company

Patchogue & Bay Shore

Lots of great burgers with lots of great names. But we’re most curious about the peanut butter, bacon, cheddar. Haven’t tried it yet. Can someone let us know how it tastes?

 

The Rex Burger & Lobster

Mineola

They have burgers and they have lobster rolls. Get both. It’s a judgement free zone.

 

Vauxhall

Huntington

Get wild with the Wild Life burger. It’s a half-pounder with caramelized onions, gruyere, and roast wild mushrooms on a brioche bun.

 

Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar

Huntington Station

Pairing wine and burgers? Yes, please.
