Wolfe's Tavern at The Wolfeboro Inn
Both Jimmy Fallon host of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and Mitt Romney have ties to the Lakes Region, specifically Wolfoboro. With that in mind, Wolfe's Tavern at the Wolfboro Inn has offered up the perfect solution for their "Burger Summit." The Fallon burger has grilled spicy chorizo sausage, horseradish BBQ sauce along with crisp fried onions, girdled marinated cherry tomatoes, cheese and arugula. The counterpoint is the Romney Burger made with Ann Romney's classic meatloaf recipe (brown sugar ketchup glaze) topped with cheesy and bacony mashed potatoes. Its served with Gorgonzola Freedom Fries. All hail the cheese!

White Mountain Cider Company
Monday is burger-and-a-beer night. Each week Chef/owner Teresa Stearns and her team take a break from their fine dining menu to offer locals a great deal on creatively dressed burgers sided by a beer of their choice. Weekly offerings have included a chili spice option with tortilla chips, pico de gallo, avocado cream and shredded lettuce on a brioche bun. Their quinoa burger and turkey burger are part of the deal too. The extra-thick Cider Mill burger shown here is topped with wilted spinach, tomato chutney, roasted portabella, cheddar cheese, applewood-smoked bacon and sided with hand-cut fries. $14 or $14 with a beer on Mondays

Moonbeam Café
Loads of creative thought help create the wide spectrum of burgers at this Lancaster café. Chef/owner Christine Fatterusso’s favorite creation may be the grilled 8-ounce Angus beef burger sitting on a bed of wilted spinach that was lightly sautéed with garlic. Additional amendments include smoked bacon, smoked Gouda and roasted tomatoes, and, of course, the house-baked sesame-studded brioche bun. During the growing season, lettuce, herbs, tomatoes and other ingredients are grown on personal property. $10.25

Post-hike, this is the place to go for a satisfying burger that’s flavored to perfection and set on a house-baked roll. Chef/owner Liz Jackson also runs the star of the north, Libby’s Bistro. Jackson came back to Gorham a number of years ago to raise her family after a stint with Julia Child. Locals and lucky travelers have praised her food and ambience-filled restaurants and it keeps getting better. As one Yelper put it ... “find a reason to go to Gorham.”

Omni Mount Washington Resort
Just about every excess is on this burger. It starts with the delicacy of ground veal that is topped with a perfect slab of foie gras (pictured at right). Just for fun they also add a fried egg and caramelized red onions. Enjoy for dinner while breathing in the history of this grand, grand hotel.
