★ A Note from George and Seth About Version 2 ★
We thank all of you for the enormous response and feedback that we've received regarding our app. Some people have asked why their favorite burger joint isn't included in the app yet. And we just wanted to explain that there's a very good reason for that. We only include establishments that we or our EBTs have actually tasted. That's the difference between an expert-sourced app and a crowd-sourced app. With Burger GPS, you know you're getting a recommendation from a reliable source. George has tasted over 10,000 burgers. He is an expert in the field...As are his small group of "Expert Burger Tasters". We simply cannot include a place that we have not visited. If you are looking for recommendations from the general community of the internet, I'm sure you can figure out which app to use. We certainly do not profess to know about EVERY single great American burger joint. And, we can say honestly, that we never will know every one. But we know about a lot of them and we continue to seek out the great ones. We take all of your recommendations seriously. And whether we agree with your personal burger assessments or not, we absolutely appreciate the time you've taken to communicate with us. So thank you for your support. We are all in this for that same love of the hamburger. See you on the road.
- George and Seth

Ratings and Reviews
Excited and slightly disappointed.
I love the idea of the app and it works great. The chain list doesn't show all locations, there is a smash burger a mile away not listed. Also elevated burgers aren't listed. I was excited to use the app and still will, but the only two sites in VA are over 6 hours away. I will be using it when I travel, but I was hoping to use it at home too. The only reason for not getting 5 stats is no local burgers.
Now, when I travel, I am never stranded. As soon as the plane lands, I turn on my iPhone and Burger GPS guides me to a great hole-in-the-wall joint with an amazing burger. The special chains feature is nice too cause it adds more options for there are no mom n pop shops near you.
Great for Travel
Fantastic app. I travel a lot and having this app not only makes it easy as pie to find a great burger nearby, but George's stories and commentaries are a real treat.
