Whether you choose beef, chicken, or veggie, the burgers at Lexie’s are a must-eat, even without the casual, cool atmosphere. Enjoy burgers, craft beer, and mocktails at any of the Lexie locations. 

Red Arrow Diner, Manchester, NH

Since 1922, Red Arrow Diner has been a darling of the Manchester food circuit, and has since infiltrated Concord, Milford, and Londonderry.

Wild Rover Pub, Manchester, NH

This Irish pub’s hamburger brings an almost extreme quality to the table, like some sort of dream dish come to life. Served on a brioche bun, variations include angus, turkey, and bison, but the real star is the “YMCA Porter Pounder,” which features a beef patty coated in peppercorn, topped with onion rings, bacon, and ranch.

Buckley’s Great Steaks, Merrimack, NH

Buckley’s Great Steaks serves up some great cuts of meat, to be sure, but their avocado burger is one for the books. Honey-chipotle barbecue sauce, candied bacon, avocado, and pepper jack cheese, topping a quality patty and grilled over native hardwood.
