Cape Cod specializes not only in sugar white sands, but also flavorful, delectable burgers. You can work up quite an appetite spending the day swimming and playing in the hot sunshine. The culinary scene in Massachusetts is one of America’s best, and fast, casual eateries don’t have to mean a drop in quality.

If you’re looking for a smart way to protect a sun burn, or just spend a day away from the ocean, consider a trip to one of Cape Cod’s top burger restaurants.

We’ve narrowed down all of the state’s options to this group of 11 award-winners. They were selected based on unique menu items, customer reviews, fresh ingredients, previous awards, and of course, burger quality. Congratulations to all that made our list!

11 Top Burger Restaurants on Cape Cod:

Red Nun Bar & Grille (Chatham / Dennis)

Good times abound at the Red Nun in Dennisport! Burgers are their specialty but I’m a big fan of their salads too (in particular the Kale Salad and the Thai Salad). They have a great beer and cocktail list with lots of local representation. IMO the best place in the area to watch a game and enjoy a few rounds!” – Google Review

Mom & Pop Burgers (Chatham)

This burger is delicious. I got the single patty cheeseburger with “pop’s sauce” and fries. The sauce is an outstanding homemade take on Big Mac sauce, but with love and flair. One should never be disappointed here.” – Google Review

Local Break (Eastham)

Got take out twice during our week stay in Eastham. Very solid. The veggie burger is home made and very tasty. Salmon entree was great with veggies and pilaf. Cooked to perfection. My wife was very fond of the house burger and southern fried chicken sandwich. We both agreed it was a higher level of food in comparison to other restaurants. Thanks!” – Google Review

KKatie’s Burger Bar (Hyannis)

I was visiting with my fiancee out of state when we stumbled on this small burger place. As someone who has tried many a burger joints this place is great. My burger was absolutely delicious and to top it off we had fresh pretzel bites with beer cheese. I definitely recommend stopping by if you’re looking for a quality burger. We were able to sit outside with our dog and the server was extremely nice. 5/5 for me” – Google Review
