Technically, burgers are a sandwich by definition of a ﬁlling on bread—a patty on a split bun. But they are their own category, with so many variations. Seacoast chefs are putting their unique twists on the all-American hamburger, creating ﬂavorful patties to ﬂip over.
Though the space is friendly and casual—like a hamburger shack should be—the folks at Lexie’s Joint take their burgers very seriously. “Everything is made in-house,” says co-owner K.C. Cargill, who owns the eatery with wife Lexie Wile. They offer three choices: a premium beef patty, chicken patty, and vegetarian black bean patty, and a variety of house-made, fresh toppings. Lexie’s was voted number one for burgers in this year’s Best of Taste. The Burning Down the House is one of the more popular choices, with jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, and chipotle aioli, or try the Urban Cowboy (bacon, onion rings, BBQ sauce) or the Green Lantern (avocado, chimichurri). Burgers are just the right size—not so big that you won’t have room for a side of their hand- cut fries sprinkled with herbs and parmesan cheese.
