Sky Rocket Burger

It’s the little details that make the cheeseburgers at Sky Rocket stand out from the pack. The sesame buns are so committed, they’ve even got sesame seeds on the bottoms. The beef patties, formed in-house, are given delightfully hard sears on the grill. No matter how many toppings you add — there aren’t many; just two kinds of cheese, four sauces, shredded iceberg lettuce, tomato, floppy pickles, onions, peppers, bacon and fried eggs — they won’t bury the flavor of the ground beef itself, because Sky Rocket constructs its burgers so well. Every burger part here fits in perfect balance. If you need a chefed-up, fancy cheeseburger with exotic inspirations and unusual meats, head elsewhere. But if you want an old-fashioned burger made flawlessly, head to Sky Rocket.

Top pick: The menu is so tiny that it’s all in how you customize your burger. This author’s choice is a double cheddar with grilled onions and grilled jalapeños.

Fun fact: Diners mourning the loss of Off-Site Kitchen and its classic burgers, this is your new spot.
