Never underestimate the comfort of a juicy cheeseburger and a piping-hot basket of fries. In honor of National Cheeseburger Day — Monday, Sept. 18 — we’ve compiled a variety of gut-busting burgers to try throughout town.

From subtle twists on classic cheeseburgers to adventurous new interpretations, here are some starting points for stuffing your face:

The Beehive, 541 Tremont St.
Pair a ritzy take on cheeseburgers with an afternoon of live music at this hot spot for jazz, funk, and blues.

Take advantage of September’s special Bourbon BBQ Blitz Burger, which crumbles blue cheese atop onion jam, barbecue sauce, and mixed greens tossed in citrus vinaigrette. If that doesn’t make your mouth water, try one of the other ~30 burgers on the menu.

Take a bite of the self-proclaimed “Ultimate Burger,” which piles a prime beef burger with lobster, bacon, serrano peppers, pub sauce, and classic cheddar.

The brunch burgers at this upscale Italian restaurant pack the three P’s: Provolone, crispy pancetta, and parmesan-sprinkled fries.
