Ohio Burger Trail

Where can I find the best burger in Ohio?

It is difficult to determine where you can get the best burger in Ohio. In addition to the restaurants featured in this road trip, there are several local burger restaurants in Ohio you can’t go wrong with. Some popular local burger joints include Zip’s Cafe in Cincinnati, Sumburger in Chillicothe, and even B-Spot Burgers in Cleveland, which is a small chain. Additionally, Ohio is home to one of the oldest burger joints in America. Kewpee Hamburgers in Lima is a little-known legend in the fast food world and a beloved treasure among locals. It’s Ohio’s oldest burger restaurant and one of the nation’s oldest burger restaurants. 

Where can I find the biggest burger in Ohio?

The biggest burger in Ohio is probably The Thurmanator at The Thurman Cafe. It features two 12-oz. burgers and a ton of toppings. There are several other Ohio burgers that are fairly massive in size, but none seem to top the famed burger hiding in German Village. (In fact, most of the burgers on the menu at The Thurman Cafe are massive.) Some other restaurants in Ohio that feature big burgers include Mac & Joe’s Restaurant and Saloon in Oxford, Tank Burger in Dayton, Terry’s Turf Club Burger in Cincinnati and Tilton Hilton in Lakeview.

What other burger restaurants in Ohio should I try?

There are all kinds of delicious Ohio burgers, just waiting for your tastebuds to discover them. Small town diners and local drive-ins are excellent places to find a good burger. Make some time to check out K’s Hamburger Shop in Troy, Carl’s Townhouse in Chillicothe and Swenson’s Drive-in in northeast Ohio.  There’s even a rolling cart in Miamisburg called Hamburger Wagon that’s been around for 100 years. (The pickles-and-onions-only sliders at Hamburger Wagon will steal your heart—and your appetite, of course—in an unexpected way.) Whether you find yourself in small town Ohio or in one of The Three Cs, chances are, you’re close to a good burger. Just ask a local or two.
