Best Burger 2007. What makes a burger terrific? Sure, the meat matters--it needs to marbled with fat (your cardiologist may not want you to know it, but fat; your taste buds know this; tastes good). But so does the cooking method. And owner Gordon MacDonald, Jr, (something about that name and burgers... hmm) hasn't any doubt as to why his burgers are so darn good: it's the char grilling, buddy. Charring the burger on a grill results in a smoky flavor. Plus, you get the grill marks. MacDonald slips his char-grilled 10-ounce Angus burgers between a Bronx-style chewy toasted roll, adds one of six different cheeses, and presto, a heck of a great burger.
