When it comes to food reviews, Yelp is kind of the end-all-be-all. Millions of people go out, grab a bite to eat, and then come to Yelp to tell us all about it.

In fact, it's because of all the reviews that come flooding in that Yelp is able to break down the best-of-the-best lists, like the one they just came out with.

Best Burgers in America

Yelp just released its "Top 100 Burgers in America" list. But with all the burgers across all of America, you've got to be asking yourself how Yelp determined its ranking; here's how:

Methodology: This is an all-time list of the top spots for a burger in the US, according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the restaurants and food categories, with a large concentration of reviews mentioning “burgers,” then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. If a business with multiple locations appears more than once on the list, we keep the highest ranked location. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of February 8, 2023.

With this methodology in mind, Yelp ranked numerous burger joints and found that four burger places in Michigan were excellent enough to make the list. Frita Batido in Ann Arbor at number 31; Royale with Cheese in Detroit at number 45; Basement Burger Bar in Detroit at number 73; and Vinsetta Garage in Berkley at number 95.
