Our Favorite Burgers in Savannah

Based on Rigorous Science

We have previously listed our top 5 burgers in Savannah north of Gaston, but because the dining scene in Savannah is always evolving, we try to update our list accordingly. Some things don’t change though. We still realize that the best burgers in Savannah is a pretty hotly contested topic, which is why this isn’t some sort of definitive ranking. This is just a new list of our favorite places to get amazing burgers based on a variety of factors such as service, atmosphere, the bun, and, of course, the burgers. Again, this list is in no particular order, so don’t fret if your favorite place is near the bottom of the page. 

The People’s Champs

We’ll start with 3 places that according to many Savannians, arguably have THE best burgers in Savannah. On the weekend — well, just about any day really — you can encounter a lengthy wait depending on the size of your party at  The Crystal Beer Parlor and Green Truck Pub. The list of available beers are both of these local pubs is great and the food quality is excellent and consistent; and in Savannah, consistency matters. Circa 1875 is a French bistro and pub; while the bistro side is lovely, the pub is where we go to get one of our favorite burgers in town. The 1875 Hamburger Au Poivre is a treat — just be sure to order the green peppercorn brandy mustard sauce on the side, and dip your burger into it.  These restaurants have burgers ranging from simple to extraordinary and are always at the top of Savannians’ favorite burger lists..

Simply Smashing.

Smashed burgers are some of latest, and in our opinion, greatest burgers to grace food menus. In the interest of providing quality research and informed opinions, we’ve tried a couple of versions of this diner classic. The Grey Market, which is the latest and greatest from Johno and Mashama of The Grey fame, is Savannah’s answer to a neighborhood bodega. Among other tasty offerings, the menu at The Grey Market features The Grey Market Burger. This burger has a smashed beef patty, caramelized onions, and comeback sauce, and is served on a housemade potato bun. Belly up to the counter and order one with potato wedges and a cold beer.

Rhett is one of the newest restaurants in Savannah and is housed in The Alida Hotel off of River Street. The restaurant’s sleek retro-diner vibe is echoed in its menu, especially in the Burger American. 2 double smashed-beef patties are served with cheddar cheese, red onion, pickles, and Norfolk sauce. This particular burger is incredibly delicious, but unless you’re especially ravenous, I recommend sharing with a friend.

Winner Winner Burger Dinner.

The Fitzroy, sister restaurant to The Collins Quarter, was recently awarded “Best Burger in Savannah 2019.” The Aussie Burger is so popular that it’s on both the Brunch and Dinner menus. The patty is an 8 oz. Certified Angus Beef patty. Like The Collins Quarter, The gang at The Fitzroy hand-patties their burgers. The Aussie Burger comes topped with cheddar, arugula, tomato, an over-easy egg, sweet pickled beets, bacon, pineapple, yellow onion and BBQ Sauce.

As with The Collins Quarter, The Fitzroy’s space has been transformed from its former self. The restaurant is located on Drayton Street. While the space has been home to other bars and restaurants, they were nothing like The Fitzroy in terms of atmosphere. Dark blue walls and turquoise banquettes gives the feel of easy sophistication. The Fitzroy also features live music and an upstairs, rooftop patio. Like its sister restaurant, The Fitzroy is one of those places where if you do have to wait for your food, you don’t mind too much because you can’t stop admiring the craftsmanship surrounding you.

A Little Different, A Lot Delicious.

Our friends over at Fork & Dagger Eatery have recently expanded and opened a new location. Fork & Dagger Latin Diner is housed in the old Bobbie’s Diner, off of Habersham. The menu echoes the visual aesthetic of the diner, but still has that Latin twist that has made Fork & Dagger so popular with locals. The Hamburguesa is a 1/3 pound beef and chorizo patty topped with pepper-jack cheese, grilled onions, Kachina Farm greens and tomato. It also comes dressed with Bravas sauce housemade Sofrito ketchup.  The result is a delightful combination of unusual and yet somehow familiar flavors. Perfect for those times when you’re craving something a little out of the ordinary.

The Bottom Line

So there you have it — as I said earlier, this is by no means a definitive list of the best burgers in Savannah,  and we didn’t use a set standard to judge all of the places that we’ve tried. Instead, we looked for what tasted good, sides offered, bun, price point and the atmosphere in which they were served. Simply put, we wanted to share our favorite places to enjoy one of our favorite foods. But don’t take our word for it — get out and try these places for yourself and see what you think. Get out, eat, and decide which place has your favorite burger in Savannah.
