Whether you like yours with a slice of cheddar and a side of fries or piled high with all the fixings, there’s nothing like a juicy burger to satisfy your hunger. If you love burgers as much as we do, you’re in luck, because five of the best burger places in the Capital Region are located just a few minutes from your Albany apartment at One Broadway.
Druthers Brewing Company
The only thing better than a burger, is a burger with cold pint of beer! Located on Broadway in Albany, Druthers Brewing Company serves their own craft beers, in addition to delicious food. Their signature short rib and brisket blend burger lineup features a bit of everything, including house-made condiments.
City Line Bar and Grill
Close to the University of Albany campus on Western Avenue, City Line Bar and Grill is hardly your typical college town tavern. Try the Signature Kentucky Bourbon BBQ burger with an egg over easy, or the amazing Mac Burger with a ball of fried mac and cheese on an all-beef patty.
Crave Burgers and Frozen Yogurt
The aptly named Crave Burgers and Frozen Yogurt doesn’t have much in the way of atmosphere, but they make up for it in flavor. Their comfort food-inspired menu features a whopping 12 gourmet burger choices, including the coffee-rubbed Breakfast Burger and, our favorite, the Upstate.
Juniors Bar & Grill
Home of the original Moonshine Wings, Junior’s Bar & Grill on Madison Avenue in Albany is everything your local tavern should be, including a great place to enjoy a burger. In addition to their regular burger selection, they feature a burger special that changes weekly. Did we mention they also have crispy tots?
Capital City Gastropub
If you want to truly support local, grab a burger at Capital City Gastropub on New Scotland Avenue. They are known for supporting local farmers, and their Kilcoyne Farms Burger is made with NY State beef served with bread & butter pickles, garlic aioli and a side of hand-cut fries.
