Is This Boston’s Best Burger?

The Big Tasty at Tasty Burger beat out the burger at J.M. Curley for the best burger in Boston

Tasty Burger has the best burger in Beantown.

The Daily Meal recently published our 101 Best Burgers in America for 2014, and in order to compile our ranking, we assembled a list of nearly 200 burgers from all across the country, from Spruce Pine, North Carolina to Hillsboro, Oregon. We then divided these burgers by region, and compiled a survey that was taken by a panel of 50 noted food writers, journalists, bloggers, and culinary authorities from across the country, asking them to vote for their favorites; limited, of course, to the ones that they’d tried. We tallied the results, and published the 101 stellar American burgers with the most votes.

With three city locations, a Fenway Park outpost, and a roving burger truck, it’s fair to say that if you're in Boston, a Tasty Burger is never too far away. The menu has specialty options, like a Hawaiian-style teriyaki option and a "butta burger" topped with creamy butter and onion. But our pick is their succulent trademark Big Tasty, with all the classic fixin’s and specialty Tasty sauce.

The Big Tasty came in at #88 on our compilation, just topping the burger at J.M. Curley, which came in at #90, for the title of Boston’s best burger.
