No. 4 Houston

5 of 22

The Texas city—known for its giant, mustard-laced burgers—held the top slot last year, for such burger institutions as Lankford Grocery and the all-buffalo Bubba’s Texas Burger Shack. One hot newcomer: The Burger Guys in the Energy Corridor area, where they use Kobe-style Akaushi beef and cook their fries in duck fat; you can also top your burger with a fried duck egg for an extra $2.
