Every night at 10 p.m. on the dot, 24 burgers emerge from the kitchen at Holeman & Finch Public House, and that’s it. Even though they’re not listed on the menu, these burgers are often spoken for well in advance (they can be reserved at any point during service), and for good reason. Each double-patty burger of fresh-ground grass-fed chuck and brisket comes topped with American cheese, pickles, onions, and homemade ketchup, and is served on a toasted house-baked bun alongside fresh-cut fries. Chef Linton Hopkins (who developed this burger while he was battling cancer; it’s the only food he didn’t lose his taste for) chose to offer this burger on such a limited basis in order to let the other items on his menu get their due, but if you’d prefer not to take your chances you can also try it on Sundays, when it’s featured on their brunch menu. We suggest it; it’s nothing short of the best burger in America. -Dan Myers

In exchange for the classic Coca-Cola ads on the walls here, some chefs film themselves making Coke-inspired recipes (BBQ sauce, dressing) for one of the beverage titan's blogs.

Scene: A bullhorn sounds at 10pm (official burger time), and the crowd goes wild. Hesitate a minute and the limited quantity (they make only two dozen a night) will be gone. A sandwich? Or an event?

The attention to detail, the love for interesting spirits, the fabulous food... if only Holeman & Finch were a little less loved, your own private cocktail heaven.

Plump, tender, and pleasantly salty, these clams are one of the most addictive choices on CL's 100 Dishes to eat before you die!

Must try the carbonara pasta, perfect for the cold weather. If you want to be more adventurous than the incredible cocktail list just ask for some help at the bar. The mixologists here are GENIUS!

The burgers here are a legendary late-night snack. The pub starts making them at 10pm and only makes 24 per night.
