10 notable Baltimore-area burger spots [Pictures]
Given the ingredients, it's easy to think the new breed of burger spots are pretentious. Not so. Whether it's the name brand Bobby's Burger Palace (the brainchild of chef Bobby Flay) or the boutique BGR Joint, these places are mostly fast casual. The emphasis is on the burger, not the setting.

Bacon Cheeseburger( Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun / February 9, 2012 )
Five Guys, 6711 Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie
If you like your burgers without a heap of bizarre fixings, then Five Guys is your place. The fanciest they get is the bacon cheeseburger ($6.59); which consists of two burger patties, cheese, bacon and your choice of standard burger toppings. This tastes like a burger you'd get from a friend at a summer cookout.
