2. Bocado

Bocado Burger Stack
In its finest moments, the Bocado burger is king. A blend of short rib, chuck, and brisket, the double patties are crispy on the edges, bursting with juices, and gooey with Kraft American cheese. But the burger is inconsistent (see “Why two patties aren’t always better than one”), which is why it’s a bridesmaid to Bone’s bride. The Bocado burger’s creator, Todd Ginsberg, now helms the kitchen at the General Muir, but the staff knew better than to mess with his recipe. Pickles balance the meat’s rich heft. $13 (burger and fries). 887 Howell Mill Road, bocadoatlanta.com
