LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In its inaugural "coast to coast" survey, Zagat polled thousands of people in 15 major U.S. cities. They were asked to rate their favorite burgers on a three-point scale based on flavor, ingredients and value.

New York's top-ranked choice was the Luger-Burger at $12.95 at Brooklyn steakhouse Peter Luger. The Luger-Burger beat out popular newcomer Umami Burger and Danny Meyer's Shake Shack, known for drawing long lines in Madison Square Park.
