Five Guys and Five Other Burger Places to Try

Five Guys

The Best of OSU winner for a reason, Five Guys is as technically savvy a burger as there is. While higher on the price side, the money doesn’t go to waste, and with a world of toppings to choose from and some of the best fries on High St., it’s simply hard to beat what Five Guys delivers.

Rippers

An often forgotten about location next to Moe’s and Panda Express, Rippers is right up there with the best of the burgers around Ohio State. The burgers themselves are a tad smaller than Five Guys, but they’re also cheaper, and the Rippers sauce may just be the most underrated things around. The fries just add to an experience that deserves equal respect to it’s competitors.

Chop Shop

For another diverse selection of burgers, move about 100 feet north from Rippers and you’ll hit Chop Shop, a very solid option for any and all burger lovers. From their signature Chop Shop burger to a Western BBQ to a Breakfast burger, there are plenty of options at Chop Shop, and they all tend to please the crowds.

Thurman’s

Known more for it’s size than all else, Thurman’s has cemented it’s place in the Columbus burger scene, even with it’s location being a bit off the beaten path. Still, there’s a reason “Man vs. Food” made a stop there, as the burgers are excellent, while also being obscenely large. Thurman’s is worth the trip, but maybe skip a meal or five before embarking on the journey.

Eden Burger

Though it may not be quite at the level of a traditional burger, Eden Burger gives Columbus the vegan option it desperately needs. The burgers are original in taste, the fries are top notch, and the outdoor patio is a nice touch to the atmosphere.

Union Market

Say what you will, but dining on a budget is important, and the burgers at Union Market are absolutely worth their price of admission. Sure, they may not be at the same levels of the counterparts mentioned above, but for a cheap price and the option to use a dining plan to pay? That makes the Market’s burger a five-star cuisine in my eyes.
