Burger War!

Which style is best: East coast or west? Let the battle (and drooling) begin.

FLAT PATTIES Overall Winner As near perfect a West Coast burger experience as Boston has to offer, Flat Patties comes closest to the benchmark set by 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. Cheeseburger, $3.90 81 Mount Auburn Street (in The Garage), Cambridge, 617-871-6871 FLAT PATTIES Overall Winner
