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.

The prison-themed restaurant Lockdown Bar & Grill won Chicago's vote with its Lockdown Warden, which features a bacon-infused blend of beef, Merkts cheddar, fried leeks, shallots and truffle aioli.
