We all have our favorite hamburger spot, right? Southern Living, in its May edition, came out with a list of favorites across South Carolina, and suggestions on which burger to order.

The Macintosh in Charleston: The Mac ($13), “made of house-ground beef and topped with apple-wood smoked Nueske’s bacon and aged Cheddar cheese.”

Moe’s Crosstown Tavern in Charleston: The Eye-Opener ($8) “combines the best of the cow and chicken using the gloriously runny yolk of a sunny-side-up egg as a silky sauce.”

Ike’s Korner Grille in Spartanburg: The Bologna Burger ($5.50), with “so much fried bologna, bacon, chili and more on this burger that many regulars ask for it without the spicy stuff.”

Pawleys Front Porch in Columbia: The Wadmalaw ($10.50), which combines fried pickles “with bacon and Cheddar and slathering the whole thing with chipotle barbecue sauce.”

Poe’s Tavern in Sullivan’s Island: The Annabelle Lee ($12), a “crab cake-topped burger that comes with a house-made veggie remoulade sauce.”

Shrimp Shack, 1925 Sea Island Parkway, St. Helena Island: The Shrimp Burger ($6.25), which “relies on small, tender shrimp for its sweet, slightly briny flavor.”

Bistro 217 in Pawleys Island: The Monster Bistro Burger ($10 bar menu, $11 lunch menu), with cheese and applewood-smoked bacon as toppings.

Henry’s Grill & Bar in Columbia: The Signature Burger ($9), with “sauteed mushrooms and onions covered with Dijon-infused Red Dragon white Cheddar imported from Wales.”

The Clock Drive In, 1844 Wade Hampton Blvd., Greenville: The Chili-Cheeseburger ($3), “made the way they’ve been since the 1950s, with a slice of American cheese and a hefty scoop of homemade chili.”

BGR The Burger Joint in Clemson: The Clemson Burger ($9), “a pimento cheeseburger with a shot of the joint’s signature horseradish Mojo sauce.”
