Goodwood Fried Pickle Burger (Lexington Burger Week)

LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Just because it’s not Burger Week doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some delicious, unique burgers in Lexington.

Rating was determined by Yelp based on input from its online community of reviewers.

Here are Yelp’s favorite burger joints to enjoy in and around the city.

1. Jack Brown’s Beer and Burger Restaurant

Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint is the dream of two childhood best friends, Aaron Ludwig and Mike Sabin. According to Jack Brown, Aaron loved craft beer, and Mike worked as a chef in four restaurants. Combining their forces together, a beer and burger joint was born.

Our 100% American Wagyu beef burger is sourced from the family-owned Snake River Ranch in Boise, Idaho. Why this beef? Creates a rich, buttery texture.

“Don’t order lettuce and tomato, our burgers are made simple and basic. Our specials are a creative twist on American classics.”

Keep it simple with a cheeseburger, enjoy an Elvis topped with peanut butter, or check out one of their daily specials.

Visit Jack Brown’s Beer and Burger Joint at 155 N. Limestone.

The Bad Wolf Burger is a crowd favorite: a seasoned patty topped with thick smoked bacon, house-made beer cheese and house-fried onion straws.
