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.
We tried 10 specialty burgers, from places which use fresh ground ingredients, cooked to order. While some rose above the rest, they were all tasty alternatives to the plain old hamburgers of yesteryear. --John Houser III

Kangaroo burger( Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun / February 9, 2012 )
Abbey Burger Bistro, 1041 Marshall St., Baltimore
