Overall Burger: 1. Nation Kitchen & Bar
    1200 Broadway St., Pendleton 				
    Nation has been an anchor in the Over-the-Rhine/Pendleton burger scene since 2015 with its inviting atmosphere and simple and delicious menu. Operated by Hickory Wald Hospital-
    ity, their second location is set to open in Westwood later this year. Nation is one of the top-voted burgers destinations the city for two main reasons: 1) the toppings are straightforward, with only one or two extra ingredients in addition to the standard LTOP (aka lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle), keeping the burgers approachable. 2) Nation’s signature double-stacked thin patty allows for double the cheese (aka double the goodness). The most popular burger on the menu is a tie between The Nation Burger (smoked cheddar, whiskey barbecue sauce, onion straws and horseradish aioli) and the Whiskey Bacon (cheddar, bacon, barbecue and apple slaw).

Neighborhood Top 3: Gordo’s Pub & Grill
    4328 Montgomery Road, Norwood
    In the middle of Norwood on Montgomery Road sits Gordo’s, an unassuming neighborhood bar with glowing neon signs in the window and your standard dive-bar awning. But inside, this Xavier University hang kicks things up with a menu of incredibly insane burgers (and an amazing craft beer selection). Opened by a friend of chef Jean-Robert de Cavel, these half-pound burgers are deliciously clever creations boasting fever-dream ingredients. For example, there’s the Jean-Robert, a burger infused with blue cheese, then topped with more blue cheese, goat cheese, grape compote, mayo and lettuce. Or the BPJ, with fried banana, chunky peanut butter cream cheese and jam. Or the Korean, with kimchi, a fried egg, pork belly, pepper jack cheese and Sriracha mayo. Imagine a country or a flavor profile, and you can find it a Gordo’s. French? How about a burger with brie? Mexican? A giant patty topped with avocado, jalapeño, lettuce, tomato and housemade cilantro mayo will fit the bill. And what if you just want it all? Try the hangover: smoked gouda, smoked sausage, cheddar, Canadian bacon, American cheese, smoked bacon, onion strings and chipotle barbecue mayo. Bonus: Vegetarians can sub in a black bean burger for any Gordo’s creation.
