When you think of classic all-American foods, the hamburger easily makes the top 10 of that list. It’s pretty clear why; sure a patty between two buns doesn’t sound like anything fancy, but add a couple toppings, or in this case more than a couple, and you have a whole new mouth watering creation.

These places are grilling up some juicy, messy, and oddly delicious burgers that are waiting to be devoured. In no particular order, we share with you some of the craziest burgers you’ll find in WNY.
