Still the best burgers in the Wichita Metro 2023

Bill's Charcoal Grill

In 2022 I did a Best in the Wichita Metro Burger Challenge.  Wichita is home to some great burger joints and you can find one at just about every major intersection in town.  I sampled burgers from over 60 restaurants, chowing down on burgers from local joints, regional restaurants and the national chains.  To determine a true champion of burgers in the Metro, a broad sampling had to be taken in order to measure the best.  I was on a mission in the name of "burger science" (cough). 

On a burger fan sad note, some of the burger joints that made my Top 10 list closed down in 2023, but I did revisit a lot of my favorites this year, so here's my Top 3 short list, and STILL the best burgers in the Wichita Metro for 2023.

Number 3 - Fizz Burgers and Bottles drop a spot from 2022:  They make a fine burger utilizing the freshest ingredients and pairing it all with made-from-scratch in-house recipe, one-of-a-kind sauces that makes for an excellent burger experience, but they are pricey and why they dropped a spot.  

Number 2 - Moving up from #3 in the 2022 Challenge, Buster's Burger Joint:  This is the best flat top burger in town and Buster's delivers not only on flavor but providing the best burger value in town with their huge burgers and generous sides.

Number 1 - Bill's Charcoal Grill:  That charcoal flavor is what continues to give this burger the edge over anything else in town and why Bill's is still #1 in my book for 2023.  Their bacon cheeseburger is my go-to order, delivering on the smoky char notes from the perfectly seasoned beef, followed by the compliment of the bacon and the melted cheese.  The veggies are always fresh, provide great added flavor and coverage, and the bun is given a nice grilled toast.  

So there you have it, my Top 3 Short List for the best burgers in the Wichita Metro, and check it out, they're all LOCAL!  No national chain restaurants cracked my Top 10 and only one regional chain (Bricktown Brewery) made that list.  Every other restaurant was local!  Honorable Mentions in order of tastier:  Deano's Grill & Tapworks (they almost unseated Fizz for #3), Burger Central, Harry's Uptown Bar & Grill, Timbuktu Bar & Grill.
