Where To Find The Best Burgers in Greenville, SC

1. Grill Marks

For the second year in a row, Grill Marks tops the list! Located in gorgeous downtown Greenville across from the Peace Center, get to Grill Marks early because it’s so popular. They have also opened a second location at Haywood Mall. KAG readers love Grill Marks for their burgers and shakes but warn of slow service so just be prepared when you go.

Grill Marks is delicious. And their shakes to match are so tasty.


I’m gluten free, and Grill Marks is my go to. Best GF buns I’ve ever had, and almost everything on their menu is gluten free! AND DELICIOUS.

2. Tropical Burger

Though technically in Easley, Tropical Burger was so highly recommended by readers that we HAD to put it close to the top of the list. Their unique burgers tower from the plate and will have your mouth watering before the waitress can make it from the kitchen to your table. They offer everything from a breakfast burger topped with an egg to a super spicy burger dressed with jalapenos. They even have a vegan burger! Be sure to check out their full menu, which includes Pepitos, fries, onion rings, churros, and more.

Tropical Burger is amazing!!!!!! It’s our absolute favorite burger and fries in town!!! Plus the owner Jose is awesome!! Highly recommend it!!

The Southern Growl moved into its new location, and this place has been making mouths water with their creations on social media. Clearly, they are doing something right because this is the second year they’ve made it on the list. Their ever-changing menu includes wildly creative burgers, desserts, and more.

I second The Southern Growl.Why? Because the team is so creative in coming up with new and exciting flavor combos, every single burger is a winner! Pair it with a pint of thier delicious beer and you won’t ever go anywhere else.

Fans of Shake Shack can save gas money because there’s a new place in town that is just as delicious. This is HipBurger’s first year appearing on the list, but we doubt it will be the last!

5. The Sheriff Burger

The Sheriff Burger offers a delicious fusion of American and Colombian fast food. Some of their burger offerings include the classic American Bacon burger with the usual toppings (yet elevated), to their Colombiana Burger that comes topped with a quail egg! They also offer a vegan burger topped with avocado, tofu cheese, and vegan mayo. Their entire menu will get your taste buds excited, especially their fried plantain appetizers or their Arepas.
