That is One Tasty Burger

To honor National Burger Month, here are few of Hour Detroit staffers’ picks


Published:

Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails's house burger.

///​ A recent favorite is Dearborn’s Brome Burgers & Shakes. Their “healthier” take on the American classic features grass-fed, antibiotic-free, organic beef. Best bet: The “One-Eyed Brome” with fried egg, avocado, and beef bacon. Since the place is halal, there’s no pork. You won’t miss it. However, you might miss not having a beer with your burger. 22062 Michigan Ave, Dearborn, 313-996-5050Steve Wilke

​///​ Cheap and good don’t have to be mutually exclusive. On Mondays, Harry’s Detroit offers a burger for a buck and it’s no paltry patty. It’s a juicy, tasty Angus burger served on a brioche bun with your choice of 20 toppings such as avocado, grilled mushrooms, and chipotle mayonnaise. Even if you ordered every topping, your tab would be $17.75, which isn’t too far off base for some places around here. The catch: You have to order a beverage. Still a good deal. 2482 Clifford St., Detroit; 313-964-1575 — Dorothy Hernandez

///​ Miller’s Bar in Dearborn is an institution, drawing a daily lunchtime line that can sometimes go out the door. The burgers, of course, are worth the wait: served on a sheet of wax paper, and Zen-like in their simplicity. In fact, Miller’s is so old-school that they use the honor system — you tell the  bartender what you had and pay. 23700 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, 313-565-2577Leyland DeVito

///​ I ordered the house burger for lunch at Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails. It consisted of a perfectly seasoned patty, herb aioli, mushrooms, and smoky blue cheese on toasted brioche. I picked up this picture-perfect creation and did not put it down until every bite was consumed. This savory burger is crafted with attention to every detail, and that’s what makes it truly exceptional. 15 E. Kirby St., Detroit, 313-818-3915Stephanie Daniel

///​ As a native of Downriver, without a doubt I can say the Oak Cafe in Wyandotte has the ultimate dive bar burger. The classic half-pound ground round, served with a build-your-own arsenal of toppings and condiments, is simple but absolutely delicious. Pair it with a craft brew and get out for a little over $10. 1167 Oak St., Wyandotte, 734-283-8380Lexi Trimpe
