If You Must: The 5 Best Store-Bought Burgers

We can’t stress enough that these are last-ditch, in a pinch options. If you don’t have the time to make your own homemade burgers, these are some of the better patties you can buy at the store.

BUBBA Sweet Onion Burgers


Every BUBBA burger is large and extremely fatty. In terms of taste, that makes them a bit better than a lot of their leaner counterparts. The best of the lot are the Sweet Onion Burgers that are made with real sweet onions. You could do far worse.
 

 

White Castle Frozen Sliders


We used to order Crave Cases a bit too frequently at White Castle, and while the store-bought version of their famous sliders aren’t as good as a dozen from the restaurant, they’re not that bad. Unfortunately, they don’t come with chicken rings.
 

 

Trader Joe’s Grass Fed Angus Beef Burgers


Trader Joe’s has a lot of hidden gems tucked in their narrow aisles. One of the best store-bought burger options is their Grass Fed Angus Beef Burgers that come in packs of four. They’ve got a high enough fat content to stay juicer than other hockey puck options at your local grocery store.
 

 

Private Selection Applewood-Smoked Bacon & Cheddar Angus Beef Patties


These burgers have received praise for good reason. They might just be the best patties you can pick up at the store. The Wisconsin cheddar and applewood-smoked bacon are blended in with the beef so toppings aren’t really necessary.
 

 

President’s Choice Portobello Swiss Vegetarian Burgers


We know it doesn’t have any meat in it so many of you will just dismiss it like Ron Swanson would, but trust us, this burger is mighty tasty. Packed with swiss cheese, each patty oozes goodness.

    Ball Park burgers are pretty good also

    +10 for Kroger’s Private Selection brand of burgers (also try their other flavors: prime rib, angus beef, chipotle & mozzarella). In a pinch, even good microwaved.

    The Private Selection Prime Rib burgers are 72% saturated fat. They caught fire from their own grease when cooked over a charcoal grill. Lean burgers will not do that. Disgusting flavor. I cooked 2 patties and promptly threw the other 4 out.
