When it comes to our favorite foods being recognized among the best in existence, however, like being home to a pizzeria ranked one the best in the world, the excitement emanates tenfold.
Already boasting some of the best pizza on planet Earth, a Windy City diner has now been awarded one of the best burgers in the world.
Dubbing itself, “the world’s leading burger website”, it’s safe to say that Burger Dudes do know a thing or two about their burgers.
Made up of a dedicated group of burger fanatics who have traveled the world since 2009 sampling the best burgers around the globe, the website published five burger reviews every week on the very best around.
Having traveled to 440 cities in over 60 countries sampling renowned food trucks, artisanal burger joints, and everything in between, they recently published their inaugural list of The World’s 25 Best Burgers after digesting their assemblage of globe-trotting experiences.
In the list of 25, which was made up of all hamburgers to have been awarded five stars and thereby deemed world-class, Chicago’s Au Cheval was ranked inside the top 5 being named the fourth-best burger on the planet!
“Au Cheval serve Chicago’s best burger, but their Manhattan location is no slouch either,” wrote Burger Dudes. “The experience delivers an exceptionally beefy flavour, complemented by the creamy cheddar, well-balanced dijonnaise, and crisp pickles. The patties are bursting with intense flavour, tender texture and impeccable seasoning. And the thick bacon provides a delightful buttery saltiness that elevates the burger to new heights.”
Narrowly missing out on the top 3, Au Cheval was beaten to the third spot by Bleecker Burger in England’s capital London while Hundred Burgers found in both Spanish cities of Valencia and Madrid came in second and New York’s Pizza Loves Emily was awarded top place as the world’s best burger according to Burger Dudes.
