Top burgers on Long Island

American Roadside Burgers (80 E. Main St., Smithtown):

American Roadside Burgers (80 E. Main St., Smithtown): You order at the counter at this burger-centric spot that's done in a nostalgic roadhouse motif. Here, burgers come out juicy, even though they're well done. Toppings are free, so you can pile on house-roasted jalapenos, red onion, relish and pickles. Gluttons can order the Roadstar -- essentially four burgers under one bun. Other options include a turkey burger, grilled chicken sandwich, kosher hot dog, chicken Caesar salad and shakes.

Burgers are so much more than a beef patty housed in a bun.

And while some Long Island restaurants keep pretty close to that simple definition, plenty of others offer a variety of toppings as well as substitutions for that beef.

We've selected 35 of our favorite LI burgers, ones that range from vegetarian-friendly to carnivore's delight and are available at sit-down gastrobpubs on through grab-and-go, counter-serve spots.
