Who doesn't like a good cheeseburger?

If you're like me, and wouldn't mind filling up the tank, grabbing and a mask, and going for a cruise for some delicious grub, then let's go.

Luckily we don't have to go too far to eat some fantastic burgers. Matter of fact, if you want to just eat cheeseburgers in Rockford, you can't go wrong with a trip to 15th & Chris, Buddy's Burgers, and/or Baker Street Burgers.

But if you want to go on a food road trip you should probably check out one, or all, of these 8 places that were just recently put on the 101 Best Burgers in America list.
