This past spring, we presented a list of some of our favorite burger places from coast-to-coast. Since then, many more delightfully saucy patties cropped up on the scene and we can't try them fast enough.
Burgers -- from classic varieties to unique stunners -- continue to be one of the trendiest (and most delicious!) foods of the year. Here are 13 more delectable burgers you need to check out:
What's better than one burger? Two. The double cheese burger at The Rookery melts in your mouth with aged cheddar, onion marmalade, bacon, pickles and a side of fries.
Proving that dreams can come true, Twenty Manning Grill delivers an eight-ounce, grass-fed Blue Star Farms bison burger with a choice of Vermont cheddar or gorgonzola, a side of the restaurant's special sauce and two slides of Kentucky bacon. If you don't eat red meat, the tuna burger with avocado-wasabi mayo or veggie burger with roasted portobello mushrooms and melted mozzarella are tasty options.
As if French onion soup isn't already a delicacy on its own, Fast Food Francais in Sausalito, just north of San Francisco, uses it to top off its patties, offering a French onion burger with onion soup, Emmental (a yellow, medium-hard Swiss cheese), cheddar fondue, onion rings and lettuce.
The house burger at The Vig is made with American cheese, tomato, pickle and horseradish dijonaise (a custom horseradish, Dijon mustard and mayonnaise blend) -- a spicier take on an otherwise tasty classic that also comes with an option of thick cut bacon and an egg.
It doesn't get more gourmet (or more delicious!) than the burger at The Larchmont, a Niman Ranch patty blend of short ribs, flank steak and dry-aged strip loin on a brioche bun with aioli, 12-hour roasted tomato, champagne buttered sauteed onion, cheddar and Gruyere cheese. Guests looking to reach for the stars can add pork belly pastrami on top as well.
Though The Tip Tap Room offers four delectable burger pairings -- steak burger with veal demi (or demi-glace, a rich brown sauce in French cuisine), lamb burger with tzatziki, turkey burger with cranberry or an Italian sausage burger with pretzel-dijon mustard -- it also offers additional toppings like sauteed vegetables and a variety of cheeses so you can make one your own way.

A play on the restaurant and acclaimed chef's namesake, the 40 day dry-aged prime steak "burker" is prepared with a healthy dose of toppings -- caramelized onion, spinach, bacon, black pepper aioli and a choice of cheese -- making for a deliciously filling brunch dish.
