The Best Burgers in Saratoga Springs, NY


Druthers has been a staple in Saratoga Springs since it opened in 2012. Now with three locations throughout the Capital Region, Druthers is a household name. Their menu changes several times a year, but you can count on them to always have a delicious burger. Some popular favorites that never leave the menu are the Druthers Burger and the Peanut Butter burger. All burgers can be made vegetarian and there are gluten free options for the buns as well. Pair your burger with one of their beers brewed in-house for a truly delicious meal!


BurgerFi took second place with 20% of the votes. Located right on Broadway, the popular burger chain has won over the taste buds of many in Saratoga. BurgerFi prides itself on serving natural Angus beef sourced from some of the leading ranches in the country. The meat is free of hormones, steroids, and antibiotics, so you can feel good about what you’re eating.

In 2018 BurgerFi was named as one of the top two national brands in the burger industry maintaining the highest standards for the sourcing of their beef. With their environmentally conscious mission and delicious custard to have for dessert, it’s no question why they took second place.

Beer Wine Pizza

Don’t be fooled by the name, Beer Wine Pizza features some incredible burgers on their menu that landed them third place in our survey. All of their burgers are seasoned with an exclusive BWP spice blend and can be subbed with a veggie burger for a delicious vegetarian option. For residents at The Springs, Beer Wine Pizza is located right outside their door, making getting a delicious burger easy and convenient.

Hamlet and Ghost

With their Grass Fed Double Cheeseburger, Hamlet and Ghost comes in at number 4. Add bacon, a sunny side egg, kimchi, or avocado and make the burger your own. In addition to their burger, Hamlet and Ghost are known for their innovative cocktails. Choose the Bamboo Cocktail, Gin-gin Fizz, or the Big Thyme and elevate your burger experience. They also offer an extensive beer menu for those who prefer the classic burger and beer combo.

Henry Street Taproom

Rounding out our top five is Henry Street Taproom. Their winning burger includes a double patty, NY cheddar cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, pickles, and their special sauce. All of their food is locally sourced and made from scratch so you know whatever you order, burger or not, will be delicious. The laid-back atmosphere of the restaurant is perfect for spending a relaxing evening sipping on one of their craft beers.
