5. Suko's Burger House, 93 Lockwood 

Starting the list is Suko's Burger House. It's your go-to if you want bang for the buck or the funds are just low. The meal deal is the best of all: burger and fries for $3.99. Perfectly toasted buns, small, lean patties and fresh additions come together to form the ideal combo. Something to note: Suko's has seafood. Try not to be too surprised when you're hit in the face with that fishy smell. It's not so bad most days. You're welcome.

4. Harrisburg Country Club, 3618 Harrisburg 

"May wifes & girl friends never meet," that's what the sign above the counter says. Harrisburg Country Club does not require a membership for entrance. It's an icehouse with a little something for everyone: a jukebox, assorted nonalcoholic beverages, darts, pool, cheap beers and, of course, burgers. The menu options have perfect portions and the tastes are great. A small kitchen tucked away behind a screen door serves up simple, easy, old-fashioned hamburgers with savory ingredients. On top of that, the patrons and staff are nice, friendly folks.

2. Moon Tower Inn, 3004 Canal Street

"A sunny place for shady people." An awesome, eclectic and unpretentious crowd frequents Moon Tower Inn to partake in the goodness it has to offer. One can indulge in a huge wall of taps and enjoy ample outdoor space while munching on delightful menu items, especially the burgers. With regards to the latter, you have options far beyond the classic, homestyle burger. Two in particular are most favored and need to be discussed in detail: the Cheech and the Chong. The special ingredients are as follows: Cheech — chèvre, poblano, thick bacon and sambal mayo; Chong — sunny-side egg, thick bacon, creole mustard, housemade b'n'b pickles and chedda'. Together, Cheech and Chong will quickly rid you of those munchies.
