Best Burger in St. Joe County. Saint Joseph County, Indiana has a lot going for it, including some of the very best burgers you'll find anywhere. In fact, an unprecedented 34 restaurants in the county placed in ZZZippy's Best 100 Burgers in 100 Miles Contest. That may very well make St. Joe County the burger capital of the Midwest! Here are the winners:

#1 YESTERDAY’S - Great Scott

GRANGER, IN

Yesterday’s is known for great food, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that their Great Scott Burger was a serious contender for ZZZippy’s Best Burger in 100 Miles. This burger has just about everything you could ask of a champion burger: the bun is soft and pillowy, the tomato and lettuce are very fresh and the sweet Vidalia onion compliments the other produce perfectly. The meat, a whopping 16 ounces of delicious beef (two 8 ounce patties), ground daily from fresh filet mignon (yes filet mignon).

Finally, the award-winner is finished with aged cheddar cheese melted on both patties.

Taste, Value and Presentation combined have earned Yesterday’s Great Scott ZZZippy’s #1 spot for the Best Burger in St. Joe County, as well as the dubious honor of "1st Place" in ZZZippy's Best Burger in 100 Miles!

#2 RUTH’S CHRIS STEAK HOUSE - Ruth’s Burger

GRANGER, IN

If you live in St. Joe County (or surrounding area) you have probably already surmised that the Ruth's Burger from ”Ruth’s Chris” made our cut and in fact was voted #2 as Best Burger in the county.

This delectable burger is made up from 10 ounces of USDA Prime Beef, masterfully prepared to succulent excellence. Havarti Cheese is then melted over the patty and smoked onion Aioli is spread on the brioche bun. Beefsteak Tomato, shredded Romaine and crispy onion straws complete this top-rated burger. May we suggest a dirty martini with blue cheese olives as the perfect complementto this delightful dish.

#3 UPTOWN KITCHEN- Kobe Burger Johnny Style

GRANGER, IN

The #3 burger in St. Joe County is Uptown Grill's Kobe Burger Johnny Style. A half pound Kobe beef patty cooked on an open fire grill with thick cut bacon, melted bleu cheese, lettuce, tomato and grilled onions, making this burger unbelievable... even without the fixings. The seasoning is kept simple… salt, pepper & steak seasoning.

Uptown spreads it all on a Challah Roll… and bam!

This burger deserves a hand!

#4 CJ’S PUB - Super Pub Burger

SOUTH BEND, IN

This burger is anything and everything you want it to be. You pick your size (5, 10 or 20 ounces). Pick your cheese, pick your produce and pick your toppings... Finally you pick exactly how you want the cook to prepare it.

It’s all about you. We can only make suggestions, which we will be happy to do, so here goes: Start with the 10 ounce (perfect size for a big appetite). Have it cooked medium to medium rare. In this case, do the Swiss cheese. Add both mushrooms and green olives, red onion slices and a small tear of lettuce... and don’t forget the bacon. Finish your burger with either CJ’s Pub Sauce or bleu cheese dressing.

This is the exact combination that landed CJ’s Pub as the #4 Burger in ZZZippy’s Best Burgers in St. Joe County.!

#5 ROC'S CAFE - Montana Burger

MISHAWAKA, IN

#5 on the list of St Joe County's best is Roc's. So, just how important is the bun? Roc’s Cafe is a small sports bar downtown Mishawaka. The burgers there are fantastic and there are plenty on the menu to chose from. However, your burger will be prepared one way and one way only (medium). Roc, the owner insists, that’s the only way they’ll do it. Roc’s uses quality meat and cheese to make their burgers, the produce is fresh... but it may very well be the bun that sets this burger apart from others.This may be the #1 bun in our contest. Try this burger once and you’ll be back... again and again.

#6 WINGS ETC. - Loaded Cowboy Burger

SOUTH BEND, IN

There’s a reason for the Etc. When a company that is known for their wings makes a burger that is voted #6 in the entire county they must know what they’re doing. Wings’ Loaded Cowboy Burger stole that accolade this year by using seven ounces of fresh beef (an 80/20 blend) to make this burger. Then they chargrilled it to achieve that flame broiled flavor. It’s seasoned with Wing’s house spice blend, topped with cheddar cheese, bacon strips and their popular house BBQ sauce. Lastly, the savory burger is laid in a buttered roll and grilled on a flat-top grill.Now that is the definition of a Loaded Cowboy!

#7 BOB’S 19TH HOLE - Big Bob Burger

SOUTH BEND, IN

This gigantic burger stands tall in the ZZZippy Burger Contest... coming in at a strong #7 in the county. It includes “two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a”… wait there’s more; the Big Bob also has tomato and bacon. And their special sauce is a delicious 1000 island dressing. The beef is brought in daily from a local meat market and hand pattied.

This burger is so good it’s bad! In fact, we think they should name it the Big, Bad, Bob Burger!

#8 SCOTTY’S BREWHOUSE - Shewman Special

MISHAWAKA , IN

Hand pattied blend of Scotty’s Brewhouse signature ground chuck spiced with garlic, black pepper and kosher salt and charbroiled to a mouthwatering conclusion.
