Is it American food?

Or, is it German food?

Where was the first burger made?

According to Julian Canlas, who is a food blogger at Twisper, "the hamburger is probably most often associated with the USA. This is no surprise as it has become somewhat of a staple in that great nation. However, the story of the creation of the hamburger (one of many stories) is that the hamburger was brought to America by German immigrants from (surprise, surprise) Hamburg in the early 20th century. As a result, you would expect the best burgers to come from either America or Germany."

When it comes to burgers, everyone has a different opinion. For me, it doesn't matter where the burger comes from as long as it tastes good.

I don't know about you, but the burger is one of my favorite food. It is one of the foods that I can eat every single day, along with Margherita pizza and tiramisu.

But, I'm not talking about just a burger but a good burger with a thick juicy patty, cheddar cheese, and a little bit of spicy sauce. And, of course, a soft but delicious bun like a cloud.

It’s very difficult to say what makes a perfect burger, simply because there are so many different variations of the simple beef and bread sandwiches. Nowadays, every place around us makes a burger. However, for a burger lover like me, it is very important to find a place that makes good burgers.

For all of these reasons, this wasn’t an easy list to make for me. However, here are the three best juiciest burger places in Chicago, based on burger lovers' recommendations.
