10 great burgers in Boston
Flat Patties comes closest to California's In-N-Out Burger. The patty has massive beef flavor, is loaded with juicy fat, and features a squishy and wide bun that fits the meat like a glove. In line with their moniker, the well-seasoned meat is pressed flat on the griddle, delivering maximum crust formation, and comes with a sweet and tangy sauce. Add in that it's the cheapest burger of the lot, and you've achieved beef nirvana.
