Chapel Hill burger joint named tops in the nation

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) - If you want more than a good hamburger — if you want the best burger in America — you don't have to travel far to find it.

A new list from TripAdvisor ranked Al's Burger Shack the No. 1 burger in the United States. The joint's signature sandwich is called the "Bobo Chili Cheeseburger." It's topped with chili sauce, coleslaw, onion, American cheese, and yellow mustard.


Al's Burger Shack prides itself on burgers, hot dogs, and milkshakes all made from local ingredients. All its burgers are made with North Carolina beef that was pasture-raised with no antibiotics and no hormones, according to its website.

The restaurant also named a burger after North Carolina basketball stud Marcus Paige.

Al's Burger Shack opened in 2013 and has locations in Chapel Hill on West Franklin Street and on Market Street.
