It's a matter of taste for sure, like how you like your burger, toppings, etc. And of course location. Most New Jerseyans have a go-to spot for a great burger.

Let's agree that fast-food burgers don't count. After all, they are more a reflection of the oils used to mass produce a consistent product worldwide. For me, I skip the fast-food chains.

There are three places in NJ where you can consistently get a good burger. All three are different and delicious.

The first is Burger25 in Toms River and in Ship Bottom.

Having multiple locations does not fall into the "fast-food" category!

The second is our go-to when we're traveling on Route 33 in Central New Jersey, Baker's American Bar.

The double patty with cheese in the middle will keep you coming back.

Then there's the place that Jodi and I passed for a decade before stopping in, Sarah Jane's in Somerville on Rt. 206. Awesome burger and you need to start with the shrimp cocktail.
