Best Burgers: Are You Ready America?

Daily Ticker

The Daily Ticker has been working overtime this week to assemble, research and verify a very important list: the Top 5 Burgers in America.

While our anchors and producers feel pretty strongly about lists and burgers, we enlisted some true experts in the field of gastronomy. So Bon Appetit's Editor-in-Chief Adam Rapoport joined us in the studio to break it all down. Tomorrow we'll reveal his top 5 burgers.

In the meantime, check out the above video to see what Aaron Task and Lauren Lyster talked about over lunch today.

"You can find your way across this country using burger joint the way a navigatior uses stars...We have munched Bridge burgers in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge and Cable burgers hard by the Golden Gate, Dixie burgers in the sunny South and Yankee Doodle burgers in the North...We had a Capitol Burger -- guess where. And so help us, in the inner courtyard of the Pentagon, a Penta burger."
