What makes a great hamburger? let's begin with your meat...the burger is the anchor. Nice ground beef is a must and make sure it's seasoned properly. As far as seasoning I don't think you have to go crazy, little pepper and salt...let everyone add their own condiments and build their perfect burger. Let's cook it medium-well :)

Next is the bun. The roll has to bed real lol  I mean no round white bread flat bun. Make sure it's a true "roll" something that doesn't fall apart once you pick it up. I probably would go with "no" seeds.

Next on the "perfect" burger...cheese. I like a cheeseburger and in my perfect world, make it "pepper jack" my fav go-to cheese! after the cheese comes the veggies. Must have fresh tomato, lettuce, onion, and pickle. I will go with A-1 not ketchup on this perfect burger.

Now onto the BEST burgers in America. The Thrillist came out with their "best burgers" in America list and they highlighted fantastic burgers from all over the U.S. and one was right here from New Jersey and they say it's worth the ride.

According to the Thrillist, one of the BEST burgers in America comes from White Manna in Hackensack, New Jersey. This Jersey icon has been in business since 1946 on the banks of Hackensack River.

The Thrillist describes White Manna as "ooey-gooey, absurdly juicy, retro burger heaven". Now I need to take a ride to Hackensack!
