Frank’s Burger Place (Wheaton)

Steeze Burger (Derwood)
This pop-up food truck created by hamburger historian, Hunter Karametos, and based in Gaithersburg creates specialized burgers from a technique Karametos learned while in London. The name Steeze Burger comes from a slang term including “steeze” which means cool and it sounds similar to cheeseburger. He sources his beef from local farms in northern Montgomery County. Steeze Burger has three types of burgers to purchase including single, double, or triple. Customers can even get a burger without the bun and all the toppings!

The Comus Inn (Dickerson)
Located in the Agricultural Reserve, The Comus Inn gives guests a chance to view the rolling hills of Montgomery County’s countryside and enjoy a fresh farm-to-table dinner experience. Chef Sammy D is from New York and elevates the status of The Comus Inn to legendary with the addition of his craft and skills to create Sammy’s Smash Burger. It’s a 3 oz house blend of beef smashed and smothered with melted onions, a secret sauce, and presented with a soft potato roll.

Soko Butcher (Takoma Park)
Soko Butcher nestled on the Maryland side of Takoma Park and focuses heavily on sustainable farms that raise their cattle ethically and humanely. Owners Brad and Chris wanted to keep traditions alive and be transparent to the community about what they’re eating.
