Finding a good burger around here isn’t difficult. Finding a GREAT burger, well, that’s another story. Any restaurant can cook up and serve a decent hamburger. But only one Massachusetts restaurant serves one of America’s best burgers, ranked top 100! Thanks to boston.com and Yelp, I can share this important info with you. So let’s get to the meat of the matter. This is where you will find the Massachusetts restaurant that serves the best burgers

It’s buger season! To celebrate,Yelp shared it’s ranking of the best hamburgers in the U.S. Only one Massachusetts spot scored in the top 100. But wait, there’s more to the story. This Massachusetts restaurant serves the best burger and doesn’t even offer meat. Congratulations to Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge! This vegetarian and vegan restaurant ranked #93 on  Yelp’s “Top 100 Burgers in America” list.

How can a vegetarian/vegan diner and bakery even make the list? It’s because of their alternative burgers. This popular diner serves a meatless buffalo “Chick n’ Burger,” which is actually made with a roasted portobello mushroom. You can order a sweet potato black bean burger, or a beet lentil mushroom burger, as you will see on Veggie Galaxy’s website.

Only one Massachusetts restaurant serves the best burger, ranking in the top 100 according to Yelp, and you’ll find it in Cambridge. Veggie Galaxy’s location is at 450 Massachusetts Ave in Cambridge. You’re welcome!
