8 Of The Best Burgers In Richmond, VA
We don’t think we need to tell you WHY you’d want to find Richmond’s best burger, so we won’t waste any time on it. Obviously, you want to know where to get the best, juiciest, most delicious burgers in all of Richmond, and we’re here to help!
Beauvine Burger Concept
Artisanal burgers made from Pineland Farms beef on locally made brioche… twist our arm? If beef isn’t your thing, try an antibiotic and hormone-free turkey or vegan veggie patty. Whatever your craving, Beauvine Burger in the Fan District can satisfy it! We personally love the Bellytimber with Duck Fat Fries because obviously.
Boulevard Burger & Brew
Brought to you by the folks at EAT Restaurant Partners, you know this is going to be a win. Boulevard Burger & Brew, located on Arthur Ashe Boulevard and Moore Street, is the perfect spot to grab a locally sourced burger (Seven Hills Farm) and a boozy milkshake. Yes, you read that correctly – pair your delicious, juicy burger with one of 10 adult milkshakes, and then probably take a nap!
This New Zealand-inspired gastropub has been written about often, but it’s so good, we’ll do it again. Burger Bach starts with grass-fed New Zealand beef, and finishes with an array of different sauces and spices, depending on which burger you prefer, to create one of Richmond’s best burger experiences. And if beef burgers aren’t your thing, you can find plenty of alternatives – from lamb burgers to fresh, wild seafood. Don’t forget to start your meal with fries and one (or more) of the 14 different dipping sauces on offer.
Carytown Burgers & Fries
The name says it all – this place specializes in burgers (and fries), and we counted over 25 different burgers on their menu. It’s literally impossible not to find something you’ll like (and this includes vegetarians, as we found 4 different “burgers” on the menu for you)! With recent expansion, you can now get your Carytown Burgers & Fries fix in Richmond’s Northside or Short Pump, as well as from their food truck at local festivals.
Citizen Burger Bar
Citizen Burger Bar occupies a well-known spot in Carytown. The building sits right across from The Byrd Theatre, boasts a large patio, and has housed several restaurants over the years. CBB plans to stay a while, though, which makes sense once you try the burgers. They use only 100% grass-fed beef from Timbercreek Farm just outside of Charlottesville, and the rest of the menu is designed around locally produced ingredients. “No muss, no fuss, and definitely no hormones – just uncommonly good stuff to eat.”

Dot’s Back Inn
This neighborhood diner is pretty unassuming, and its menu features exactly what you’d expect from such a place. But dive into your burger with an open mind, and you’ll be amazed! Whether you order something simple, such as the Triple Cheese, or go all-in with The Ultimate Burger, Dot’s will leave you dreaming about your next visit. No wonder they call them “Heroic Burgers!”
Saison is more than just burgers; in fact, it only has one burger on the menu. But when that burger is named the Saison Burger, you know it’s more than just an afterthought. Using local beef, and topping it with house-smoked cheddar cheese, Ramp Ranch, and pickles, this might be the most southern burger you can eat, and Saison is a great place to eat it, since it’s known as one of Richmond’s top southern-style restaurants.
Located in Richmond’s second-ever firehouse, Station 2 supports local farms and brings only the freshest burgers to your table. The restaurant uses beef from Buffalo Creek, and greens from Manakintowne Specialty Growers – you’ve got to love Virginia! While you can’t go wrong here, we love the Classic Station 2, but we double dare you to take on the Station Ladder!
