The end of the year means looking back at the best of 2023.  Movies, songs, and burgers.  Yes, Yelp has crowned the best cheeseburger in every state including Illinois.

While there are thousands of places to get burgers, only one could take the crown of king of the cheeseburgers in 2023 for Illinois.  And it's not surprising where it's from and why it's different from the rest around the state.

According to Yelp, the popular review website, they identified businesses in the food and restaurants category, with a large concentration of reviews mentioning “cheeseburger,” and then ranked those spots using several factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning “cheeseburger,” between January 1, 2023, and July 20, 2023.

With that, you can now go to every best burger place in America.

In Iowa, the best cheeseburger in 2023 goes to "The Burger Shop".  The locally owned Clive restaurant has straightforward burgers that only cost $6.50 which is definitely worth a try.

If you are traveling for the holiday season and going through Wisconsin, you shouldn't be surprised that the best burger restaurant comes from a place that also has "Custard" in its name.  Kopp's Frozen Custard in Greenfield, Wisconsin has the best burgers in the state in 2023 which you can also get for $6.50.

While Iowa has "The Burger Shop" and Wisconsin has a "Frozen Custard" place as the best cheeseburger, Illinois has "Au Cheval".  That seems right.

Located in downtown Chicago, Au Cheval has a much more eclectic food selection compared to its neighbors to the north and west.  But, it also has a straight-up cheeseburger on the menu which you can order for $16.99.  That seems right.

These are just a few of the best cheeseburgers of 2023 in America.  If you want to travel to see all of them you can check out the full map.  If you want to get your favorite spot on the list, then start leaving really good reviews on Yelp.
