Take a Road Trip at Your Grill with Our 7 Regional Burger Recipes

Looking to try something different on the grill this summer? There’s nothing better than a fresh new take on the classic burger. You can travel the country without leaving the backyard with our burger recipes inspired by different regions of the U.S.

Start your burger right with patties made from ground Angus or Wagyu beef, or mix it up with ground lamb, turkey or buffalo – all available at dartagnan.com.

1. Deep South Burger

Fried green tomatoes, homemade pimento cheese, and chowchow mayo add Southern charm to this juicy Angus burger.

2. Biergarten Burger

This burger brings the best of the biergarten (whether in Germany or the Midwest) to your table. Pretzel buns, thick-cut slab bacon, crispy shallots, grainy mustard, and our juicy Angus beef is smothered in beer cheese sauce. We’d definitely recommend extra napkins with this one.

3. Philly Burger

This burger has all the flavors of our favorite cheesesteak. Instead of thinly shaved steak, we used rich Wagyu beef patties seared with a bit of butter and topped with peppers and onions. Allowing the patties to rest directly on the rolls after cooking ensures you won’t lose any of those tasty juices.

4. Fajita Burger

Sautéed peppers and onions, fresh guacamole, and a smoky spice rub make these burgers sizzle with Texas flavor.

5. Upstate Burger

This unique burger strikes the perfect balance between salty and sweet, crunchy and soft. Thin slices of tart Granny Smith apple are the perfect foil to caramelized onions and candied bacon. Add a little maple mayo and sandwich in a crusty Kaiser roll for burger heaven!

6. So-Cal Burger

This burger is pure sunshine. Our Angus beef is seasoned with herb salt then crowned with Jack cheese, creamy avocado, tender baby lettuces, and a generous swath of sundried-tomato mayo. Pair it with root veggie chips for a crispy contrast.

7. Maui Burger

This tasty burger will give your backyard barbecue some island style! Our Wagyu beef burgers are marinated in teriyaki sauce before being cooked over flame, then topped with duck bacon, grilled pineapple, and extra-creamy Japanese mayo. Add some sweet onion and leaf lettuce then sandwich in sweet Portuguese rolls for some seriously good burgers.
