Bite Into the Best Burgers in Sacramento

Burgers and college tend to go hand-in-hand. Comforting, filling and relatively inexpensive, burgers are often a "go-to" for students around the country. For the best burger options near Sacramento State University, here are some hotspots worth trying:


Though a bakery may not be the first place one might think of to find a great burger, Ettore's European Bakery and Restaurant proves otherwise. With beginnings as a high-end bakery, Ettore's has made a name for itself for all things baked goods. With the addition of a restaurant, however, this eatery quickly became known for its signature Ettore's Hamburger on Ettore's Cheddar Scallion Bun. Piled high with sauteed mushrooms, Swiss cheese and homemade herb mayo, this is a customer favorite.


A quintessential "burger joint", Scott's Burger Shack is the perfect spot for a comforting burger. In business since 1982, Scott's Burger Shack has been feeding locals and visitors for over 30 years. With a focus on great food at a minimal cost, this casual family-run business has plenty of outdoor seating. Not surprisingly, the menu is burger-centric and has an array of options including the Fatboy Burger, the "Turkey" Burger Supreme and the Pastrami Burger.


Originally a food truck, Broderick Roadhouse has expanded to include a small chain of restaurants in the Sacramento area. Focusing on homemade food using the best ingredients, Broderick Roadhouse delivers the ultimate in comfort food. The expansive menu has a mix of everything from shareable starters to hearty entrees, but the burgers are the item that keeps customers coming back. The house specialty is the Johnny Cash Burger, a sandwich topped with applewood-smoked bacon and a handcrafted BBQ sauce.
