Nominate the Best Burger in Town for Patch's 'Best Of' Awards

We need your help in picking the best neighborhood burger. Give us your nominations now.

If you live in H-F, there's a good chance you've got a favorite burger place in town.

Here at Patch we like to salute local businesses and from time-to-time enlist our readers in carrying out this merry task. It is with that spirit in mind that we are pleased to announce the start of our "Best Of" Awards where we will let our readers decide who should wear the crown in a variety of categories. 

Our first task is no doubt a controversial one, but someone has to do it. We implore to put all those years of research to the test and let us know which burger in the Homewood-Flossmoor area deserves a Patch "Best Of" award. 

Leave a comment below by Thursday, Dec. 19, at 8 p.m. with your nomination. We'll take your picks, combine them with ours and put the whole thing to a vote.

The Cottage on Dixie makes a unique burger served on a right-sized in-house baked roll. The burger is thick and juicy made with a combination of meats that changes at various times. Ask your waiter what the special burger combinations are for the day.

Lassen's Bar and Grill has the most flavorful burgers, with 5th Quarter definitely a VERY close second. My mouth is watering.....

Definitely the burgers at the Cottage on Dixie.

Tough choice here. The 5th Qtr. has already been nominated. The Tin Ceiling should be also.

Another vote for Lassens especially since they have added the Winter Menu, some great burger options!
Tammy December 17, 2013 at 10:17 AM
Lassens has my vote. So Good

My choice is 5th Quarter

5th quarter

Best non-traditional is the turkey burger at Grady's -- avocado, and mango salsa on a juicy (no easy feat) turkey burger -- pretzel or regular roll, you decide!
Tobias Cichon December 17, 2013 at 12:15 PM
Lassen's or The Cottage. The Cottage burgers are really amazing, but Lassen's is for sure my go-to.

Back when I ate meat, 5th Quarter was my favorite. Who makes a good, stay-together veggie burger? I love Blueberry Hill but their veggie burger is only so-so.
Beth J December 17, 2013 at 01:50 PM
5th Quarter!! accompanied with great service!
Genvieve LaChappele December 17, 2013 at 01:52 PM
lassen's for sure.
Colleen Cummins Mancha December 17, 2013 at 01:54 PM
The cottage on Dixie !

The Lassen's Classic

Grace Klein December 17, 2013 at 06:31 PM
Wiley's my fav....Jalapeño popper burger rocks
Michael Maszak December 17, 2013 at 07:57 PM
5th quarter stuffed burgers

Went to Lassen's last nite...I think they could be better than 5th quarter. Both are delicious in their own way.

Lassens without a doubt.
Candi December 18, 2013 at 03:19 PM
In Homewood - 5th quarter. Surrounding area - Hackney's
James Tiernan December 19, 2013 at 08:33 AM
My vote goes to The Cottage on Dixie. My medium rare ground pulled pork and brisket burger accompanied by a glass of one of their celebrated red wines (which superbly complemented the meal) was outstanding!
