Topping the list is Winghart’s Burger & Whiskey Bar. Located at 5 Market Square in the Central Business District, the whiskey bar, which offers burgers, pizza and more, is the highest rated burger spot in Pittsburgh, boasting four stars out of 485 reviews on Yelp.

Here’s what Yelper Matthew U. had to write:

“This burger came out with a nice coating of melted cheese, kind of locking in that flavor that screams burger.  The slaw wasn’t too tangy at all, it was more sweet than anything.  And those fries, oh my god, they added a nice crispiness to this thing.  Each bite was amazing.”

Jenn P. added, “They consistently make the most amazing burger I’ve eaten. I get the Harpers Fairly Good, medium well. It’s topped with a beef sauce, Boursin cheese, fried onions, and a fried egg.”

“Visiting on business and I really enjoyed the Beretta Veggie,” wrote John H. “One of the best veggie burgers I’ve had, and it was a falafel patty.”

2. Burgatory

“If you go here and like bacon then get the Fiddy Fiddy hamburger,” wrote Yelper Jennifer F. “It’s ground bacon and hamburger together.  So good.”

“I ordered the Piggy Butter Jelly burger because I thought their ingredients (like candied bacon and habanero jam) sounded interesting,” added Joop V. “I  was pleasantly surprised how well they went together.”

Reviewer Brad F. wrote, “My Morton’s steak burger was done perfectly and the service was very fast and friendly. I will definitely not wait as long next time to come back.”
