Take a bite out of National Hamburger Day with these Kansas City burgers

The griddled burger from Howard’s Cafe

If ever there was an excuse to indulge in a juicy hamburger and fries, it’s National Hamburger Day. And since the holiday hits this Thursday, we rounded up a few of our favorite burgers from local restaurants that will satisfy any appetite. Here are five that we’re craving this week:

Howard’s Cafe

Made from 100 percent Kansas grass-fed beef, it’s hard not to enjoy every bite of Howard’s griddled burger. The house-made American cheese and pea shoots on top add farm-to-market flavor that can’t be beat. One reviewer claimed it was “one of the best burgers…in the K.C. area.” $12, Howard’s Cafe


No one does barbecue like Kansas City, and Q39’s brisket burgers bring the best of K.C. in between its toasted bun. The Burnt End Burger is especially appetizing, with sliced burnt ends and spicy pickle slaw on top of the ground-brisket and angus beef patty. Add the restaurant’s classic sauce for a boost in flavor. $11.50, Q39

Town Topic

Grilled to perfection, Town Topic’s signature burger is cooked on the spot when ordered at one of its three locations in Kansas City. Whether you’re ordering a single, double or triple, the burger comes with carmelized onions and a chewy bun that only adds to the taste. Grab a milkshake and tater tots on the side for the full diner effect. Burgers start at $2.85,Town Topic

BRGR Kitchen + Bar

A fried egg, bacon and onion straws: If you truly want to indulge, the Big Hoss burger from BRGR Kitchen + Bar is the meal for you. The restaurant’s unique take on burgers extends to the Big Hoss, which is topped with Wisconsin cheddar cheese and steak and Tabasco sauce. One reviewer called it “the biggest burger [he’d] ever seen.” $12, BRGR Kitchen + Bar

The Westside Local

The half-pound Summit Burger from The Westside Local is equal parts delicious and filling, with beef from Windhaven Farms, mixed greens from Two Sisters, Swiss cheese and Dijon vinaigrette on a Farm-to-Market brioche. If the burger isn’t enough to entice you, the fries are a favorite among Kansas Citians. $14, The Westside Local
