Reading about the most delicious burgers in Hunterdon County, without immediately getting in the car to order the entire menu for yourself, is the ultimate exercise in self restraint. We have managed to pick our jaws up off of the floor, and quieted our rumbling bellies to bring you the most delicious burger creations. These are not your average backyard burgers. This summer, variety is the name of the game, and our Happening List winners have risen to the occasion. With everything from plant based patties, farm fresh proteins, and toppings as far as the eye can see, this year take some inspiration from the professionals or better yet take the night off and have them make one for you!
