Charleston’s Best Burgers
Where to find patty perfection in the Holy City
Charleston’s culinary offerings are unrivaled, and its burgers are no exception. Though crowds flood Husk’s main dining room, bypass them and beeline to the adjacent Bar at Husk, where the menu is brief, but smart. The famous Husk Cheeseburger, stuffed with two bacon-infused patties, American cheese, and house pickles, is an absolute must. Little Jack’s Tavern on burgeoning Upper King keeps its offerings sweet and simple. But bypass the Double Tavern Burger and order two single-patty Tavern Burgers instead. (Another pro tip: skip the garlic and herb fries and go with the plain.) After a single bite, you’ll know what all the fuss is about: this is pure patty perfection. If you’re of the belief that bigger is better, beeline to The Macintosh for “The MAC” CAB burger. It’s a belly-busting affair of a thick beef patty, Nueske’s bacon, cheddar, and special “Mac” sauce. With Pecorino truffle fries on the side, it’s large enough to leave two people stuffed.
