If you are a Granite Stater, you probably have a favorite burger joint near-by that you frequent when you want the delicious simplicity of a mouth-watering burger and fries. But, while you may know where to go in your own community for that perfect burger, you might not have a clue where to head if you are exploring another part of the state or are sent to another region on business. You will see burger restaurants everywhere, but basically, you are taking your chances.

Well, here is a bit of the work done for you, so that the next time you need (yes, sometimes it is more than hunger, we just “need” a good burger) you will know which ones rate as a top pick for an awesome burger experience.  Here is your list of great burger joints in NH:

Wolfe’s Tavern, situated in the Wolfeboro Inn.  Has offered up some of the best in burger creations to its patrons. Try the Fallon Burger with grilled spicy chorizo sausage, horseradish BBQ sauce along with crisp fried onions, girdled marinated cherry tomatoes, cheese and arugula.

Wild Willy’s Burger, Rochester.  This joint is known for using burger patties that are made by hand every morning. Wild Willy’s Burgers was opened in 2001 and now offers a gluten-free menu.

Brady’s American Grill, Peterborough. Their menu serves soups, salads, burgers, Mexican food, sandwiches, and wraps. But Brady’s American Grill’s most popular menu item is its burgers, which includes the bacon cheeseburger, the Texas burger, and the Swiss cheese and sautéed mushroom burger.

White Mountain Cider Company, Glen. Offers an extra-thick Cider Mill burger, which is topped with wilted spinach, tomato chutney, roasted portabella, cheddar cheese, applewood-smoked bacon, and sided with hand-cut fries.

Woodstock Station Brewery, Lincoln.  Voted the best in the 2015 Best of New Hampshire Awards. These burgers are juicy, delicious perfection and offer numerous topping to choose from. Their accolades include: Best Brewery, Best Brewpub, Best Burger, and Best White Mountain’s Restaurant.

Tandy’s Top Shelf, Concord. Took top honors in the Best of Concord for 2012, with accolades like Best Late Night Eats, Best Chicken Wings, and the Best Chicken Tenders. But Tandy’s Top Shelf also offers Over-The-Top-Burgers such as BBQ Rodeo Burger, Swiss Melt Burger, and Taco Burger.

The Flying Goose Brew Pub and Grille, New London.  The Flying Goose carries more than 15 handcrafted brews on tap as well as an extensive menu and, of course, offers its famous Brew Burger, the New Englander, and the All American burger. Perfectly cooked and delicious!

Lexi’s Joint, Portsmouth. Is small, slightly hidden and a gem. They are a favorite burger destination for burger lovers on the Seacoast, and they feature three different kinds of house made burger patties and daily specials.

Moonbeam Café, Lancaster.  Is a must try because of its grilled 8-ounce Angus beef burger sitting on a bed of wilted spinach that is lightly sautéed with garlic. Delicious! You can add on to it with smoked bacon, smoked gouda, and roasted tomatoes. It is served on a house-baked sesame-studded brioche bun. During the summer harvest lettuce, herbs, tomatoes, and other ingredients are grown on-site!

    I recently had a client going to NH and found a link to this blog on our http://www.realhelprealestate.com site. They actually tried 3 of these and said that Lexi’s Joint was an all time favorite, but that all were good. Thanks for the information all the way from Colorado.
