Say what? No Arkansas burgers on Food & Wine's Top 25 Burgers in the U.S.

BETTER CHOICES:  In my opinion
Few things get my ire up more than my home state being lumped in with the "flyover states" in the Union. That's the main impression I just got from peering through Food & Wine Magazine's Best Burgers in the U.S. piece. Many of the entries come from New York or California. I don't even agree with the closest restaurant listed, Dyer's in Memphis (I'm a Huey's girl).

I certainly hope the editors reconsider once they come to Little Rock to meet and interview Chef Lee Richardson; the burger served at Capital Bar & Grill is the finest I've had anywhere, in-state or out. Hunka Pie, Cotham's, Burger Mama's, The House, CJ's Butcher Boy... I could go on for hours about burgers from Arkansas that should be on that list. What do you think? Should we challenge Food & Wine Magazine? Should we come up with our own burger bests? Your thoughts.

Burgers pictured: CBG's Pimento Cheeseburger, The Box's gutbomb, Cotham's in the City's normal sized burger, Burger Mama's double Cheddar cheeseburger, The House's Greek Burger, EJ's Cheddar Cheeseburger, CJ's Butcher Boy burger and a plain Cheddar-clad burger from Hunka Pie.
