4. Sammy D’s, Atlantic City: Lil’ Monster Burger ($10)

Chef Sammy DeMarco knows how to make a burger. Some prefer his gigantic Double House Burger, but we prefer his Little Monster. Bearing resemblance to Wingcraft’s equally appetizing Classic Double, Sammy D’s version is just as simple and as delicious. Two 3-ounce patties are a custom Pat LaFrieda blend with brisket and short rib and are layered with enough American cheese to make a vegan faint. In between the buttered, grilled, delicious, sesame brioche roll from Hudson Bread are layers of flavor including diced onions, dill pickle chips, ketchup and mustard. Only available on the bar menu, the Little Monster is more filling than its name implies, and the complimentary fries make it a meal. Upgrade to add dipping sauces such as Sriracha ketchup, chipotle mayo and cheese sauce. Because as Sammy D would say, “Why not?” HarrahsResort.com; SammyDs.com
