Al’s Burger Shack

You won’t believe where to find one of the country’s best burgers

There are few foods more quintessentially American than a burger. But the location of one of the country’s best just might surprise you. Al’s Burger Shack is located in Chapel Hill, near the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and is renown for its unusual signature Bobo Chili Cheeseburger, a belly-busting creation loaded with chili sauce, coleslaw, onion, yellow mustard, and American cheese. If that sounds a bit too much, no worries. The classic and plain cheeseburger are no slouch, and the famed rosemary fries are not to be missed.
