Best Burgers in seven Northeast Ohio counties based on Yelp rankings

CLEVELAND, Ohio — There are hundreds of “birth of the burger” stories surrounding the ground beef patty on a bun – one of which has its roots right here in Northeast Ohio.

Canton natives Frank and Charles Menches, who were food vendors at the 1885 Erie County Fair outside of Buffalo, are said to have run out of their signature menu item of pork sausage sandwiches. Their local supplier was reluctant to butcher more hogs during a period of unseasonable late summer heat and suggested substituting ground beef. The brothers – disappointed in the blandness of their first sandwiches — added coffee, brown sugar and other ingredients to create a unique taste.

The Menches claim is just one of hundreds of stories about the invention of the American staple.

Regardless of where it came from, the humble burger is, today, one of the world’s most popular foods – with nearly 50 billion served up annually in the United States alone. That averages out to every American eating three burgers a week.

In 2018, cleveland.com’s ‘Best of’ team ate 100 burgers around Northeast Ohio, and found 27 burgers they felt were “must trys.”

But if you still feel you need more options, we asked our friends at Yelp Cleveland where to find the best burgers in The Land can be found, according to their reviewers.

Methodology: This is a list of top burger restaurants in the greater Cleveland area for 2020 according to Yelp Cleveland. Yelp Cleveland identified businesses in the burgers category, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews in 2020. This list looked at businesses in the following counties: Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit. We worked directly with Yelp Cleveland on this list to reflect accurate data.

We’ve broken the results down by county for you.

Yelp rating: 4.5 stars

Sample review: “Fantastic place for takeout in Solon. Everything is fresh and made to order. My spouse is gluten free and they are very accommodating. The Greek classics are to die for, but they go beyond the expected. Salads are crisp and the dressings made in house. Burgers are mouth-watering. Perfect for lunch or dinner.” – Andy V.

Yelp rating: 3.5 stars

Sample review: “I remember hearing about Bearden’s decades ago during my college years. I don’t recall going here then but was in the area to shop recently and ordered a single bacon cheeseburger and fries to go. I loved it. Big order of fries compared to other places and they were hot and crispy. Burger was neatly put together, cooked perfectly with crispy bacon, nice green leaf lettuce, tomato and ketchup. It was exactly the right portion. Burger was wrapped in paper and it didn’t disintegrate in your hands like so many sloppy burgers. I will surely go back and highly recommend this place.” – David S.

13187 Cedar Rd., Cleveland Heights, 216-371-4400

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Sample review: “Let us simply say, the name does not lie. Fresh & Meaty delivers no-frills deliciousness in a low-key grab’n’go environment. The made-to-order burgers — both the beef and turkey — are substantial, juicy, and piled high with fresh ingredients. Your reviewer humbly advises you go light on the relish as it tends to overwhelm the meat. And for those that dare tempt the foodie fates, the chili cheese fries are just plain hedonistic, overflowing with cheese and succulent beef. If it’s a pleasing food coma you crave, head over to F&M ASAP.” – Kevin T.
