NYC Home to Nation's Top 3 Burgers: Foursquare

Thursday is International Burger Day, and New Yorkers looking to celebrate won't have to venture more than a few subway stops for some of the nation's tastiest hamburgers.

A whopping 16 restaurants were listed among the top 50 burger joints in America, according to the social media network Foursquare. Big Apple restaurants claimed each of the top three spots and four out of the top five, according to Foursquare's list. 

Minetta Tavern, the venerable Greenwich Village steakhouse, took the top spot in the rankings. Burger Joint, in midtown, was named the country's second-best burger, while Shake Shack took the third spot.

Several other popular Manhattan burger joints, including Corner Bistro and The Spotted Pig, made the list. DuMont Burger, in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood, and Bareburger's location in Queens, were also among the top 50 burgers in the country. 

The rankings listed the top-rated locations for burger chains across the country using Foursquare data.

Restaurants like Shake Shack and Five Napkin Burger were included in the rankings, but only each chain's top-rated location.
