Readers' Choice: Best Burger

Tell us what you love about your favorite burger in town and help us crown a winner in the all-important "Favorite Burger" category!


The best burger in town—everyone has an opinion on it, so we’re thinking this week’s Readers’ Choice contest in New Canaan is sure to generate a lot of great discussion on Patch.

Based on what you tell us, we’ll declare our 2012 Readers’ Choice winner in the category at 12 p.m. Friday. What's extra-cool about this week's contest is that the New Canaan winner will be invited to participate in a Best Burger in CT contest that will run later this summer!

Please remember our contest rules (attached as PDF) and note especially that telling us why you love your favorite burger (juiciness, presentation, toppings, atmosphere, staff?) by posting a rating and review on its directory listing (just click on the link below) is even more important in determining a winner than casting a poll vote.

New Canaan’s restaurant scene is bustling, and in the realm of burgers we’ve got newer eateries such as Station Eats joining our venerable standbys, such as Cherry Street East.

Don’t see your favorite burger spot listed? Tell us in the comments below. And if you’re a business owner who hasn’t , do so now!

Wasting no more time, here’s our list, please click on the listing to post a rating for Readers’ Choice:

I say my pals at Gates are TOPS here in New Canaan. Though, out of town I have another hidden gem which I will keep to myself. Sorry folks. :)

Cherrystreet and Gates are good, but the best burger is clearly found at Harvest Supper.

Chef Luis--because his burgers are done with a twist. Five different burgers on the menu for lunch or you can create your own. All the burgers come with fries, onion rings, lettuce, tomato, and red onions. California Cheese & special sauce. New Canaan High 1/4 lb. burger with bacon, American cheese, special sauce, served on an English muffin. Guatemalan Fried egg, cheese, guacamole & special sauce. The Works Sautéed onions & mushrooms, jack cheese, pickled jalapeño peppers & Russian dressing. Mexican Guacamole, Pico de gallon, jalapenos, sour cream, jack cheese wrapped in a flour tortilla.

Dunn Glenbar June 06, 2012 at 01:15 AM

Hey everyone: Just a friendly reminder that Reviews posted in the New Canaan Patch directory on these restaurants count more toward declaring a winner than poll votes. Right now it's a virtual tie among Harvest Supper, Farmer's Table and Cherry Street East. Here are the directory listings for those restaurants—please rate & review them, and say why your choice is the best burger (get to another listing by clicking on the link in the article for that restaurant): Farmer's Table: http://patch.com/L-rl1L Harvest Supper: http://patch.com/L-hwJ Cherry Street East: http://patch.com/L-gS5

A few weeks back I stopped into Farmers Table at 10:30 PM They were still serving! I ordered a Cheeseburger. I like mine "Black and blue" Chared on the outside really rare on the inside. Other places can't seem to handle that request. They put it on a Brioche bun. So fresh and yummy. Served w/ a large helping if crispy fries. The Berger? Well, its the best I've had in years maybe ever. Crisp on he outside and juicy inside. Just Bergertastic.. The price was right too.....

Pine Social out of the running. CLOSED - Will reopen as "South End Restaurant"
Glen K Dunbar June 07, 2012 at 09:19 PM
Sounds interesting. Brazilian maybe??

Farmer's Table! Its a no brainer! Delicious organic food. The changing menu keeps me coming back for more to see what Luchia and Roberto haave come up with next! The scones, french pressed coffee, and chicken quesadillas with a twist are staples for me. I can not rave enough about them and how environmentally conscious they are with the food they choose. All organic and IN SEASON, so you get the freshest food!

Farmer's Market has the best burgers in New Canaan. I would eat their cheeseburgers several times a week if I could. I can smell them now. Pickle and mustard, please.

Farmer's Table is #1.
Bill m June 08, 2012 at 02:56 AM
Believe it or not Tequila Mockingbird has a great burger. Ask them for the pico de gallo, lettuce, bbq sauce and cheese.
