In case you missed it on your calendar, May 28th is National Burger Day and to celebrate Yelp is honoring the best of the best from coast to coast.

To come up with their list of the 100 Best Burgers in America, Yelp identified businesses in the restaurants and food categories with a large concentration of reviews mentioning 'burgers', then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews.

This year, an Iowa and Minnesota burger each cracked the Top 50 on the elite list.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
