Nage
19730 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, 226-2037, nage.bz/rehoboth_beach
It’s 100 percent prime beef at Nage, topped with gooey melted Gouda and sweet caramelized onions. This is a classic.

Stroll into Kid Shelleen’s Charcoal House and Saloon and meet the Jenny Farm Steakburger, aka heaven on a bun. Local, organic grass-fed beef gets topped with caramelized onions and cheddar cheese. Jen is also available at Harry’s Savoy Grill and Harry’s Seafood Grill.


Burger Deal | Critics

Scratch Magoo’s
1709 Delaware Ave., Wilmington, 651-9188
This is a perfect patty melt accompanied by the perfect pasta salad at this perfectly cool Trolley Square fave—and burgers are half-price on Mondays.


Cholesterol Bomb Burger | Critics

Chelsea Tavern
821 N. Market St., Wilmington, 482-3333, chelseatavern.com
Chelsea’s Dirty Burger is a towering monument to meat, a crispy, deep-fried burger patty topped with fried scrapple, smoked bacon, a fried egg and American cheese on a brioche bun. It’s so good, it’s bad. Or so bad, it’s good.
