South Africa – Big 7 Travel is back with another helpful list about South Africa. This time they have listed the top 25 places to get a good burger in South Africa.

The travel content site has confirmed that many international tourists are now looking towards South Africa as a top travel destination. This is because there are so many phenomenal places to visit within our country.

A hamburger, beefburger or burger is a sandwich consisting of one or more cooked patties of ground meat, usually beef, placed inside a sliced bread roll or bun. The patty may be pan-fried, grilled, or flame broiled. Hamburgers are often served with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, bacon, or chiles; condiments such as ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, relish, or “special sauce”; and are frequently placed on sesame seed buns.

The hamburger is a globally enjoyed meal and everyone has their favourite kind from the classic cheeseburger to the newer gourmet style burgers with unique flavour combinations.
