Turkey burgers are served almost everywhere, but no two taste quite alike.

Here are some favorites:

JACK'S SHACK, 671-A Glen Cove Ave., Glen Head, 516-676-7001

Food Network personality William "Jack" Degel's casual -- and environmentally green -- burger spot features a very juicy turkey burger, hormone and antibiotic-free. Get it with any number of free toppings, such as guacamole, bacon jam and pico di gallo, as well as house-made ketchups, spiced or mild. $6.95

OLD FIELDS, 81 Broadway, Greenlawn, 631-754-9868

This popular tavern serves one of Long Island's best turkey burgers, a hefty winner topped with jalapeƱos, Jack cheese and green tomatillo salsa, plated with fries or a salad. $12.95

JAKE'S WAYBACK BURGERS, 2306 Hempstead Tpke., East Meadow, 516-520-0298, and 1964 Jericho Tpke., East Northport, 631-864-5555

The turkey burger at this nostalgia-themed chain beats out the beef burger in flavor and juiciness. Get it as a turkey burger club, with bacon, lettuce and tomato or plain with whatever free toppings you choose. $4.99-$5.29

THE WILD ROSE BAR & GRILL, 1660 New Hwy., Farmingdale, 631-465-0886

Sit in one of the comfortable booths and order the turkey burger: One bite releases smoky juices ignited by Southwestern spice; nutty sweet potato fries are on the side.
