If you are in the North End looking for the perfect place to get a good burger for a great price look no further than Mangia Mangia. The place is known to be packed around lunch time, so be sure to call ahead to pick up your order. Mangia Mangia is relatively small, seating around twenty people. Their burger is hailed as one of the best in the city, and a cheeseburger goes for $4.

Tasty Burger
1301 Boylston St

If you are a college student living in the Fenway area, this is the place for you. Tasty Burger is open late (until 2 a.m.) and has great deals on delicious burgers. Their burgers are 1/3 lb and cut from all natural beef. The prices are ideal for a college student, as you can get a burger for $5. There is even a meal called the “Starvin’ Student” where you can get your choice of a cheeseburger or hamburger with a can of beer and french fries for only $10 if you show your student ID. Tasty Burger also has locations in Harvard Square and South Boston.

Financial District
60 State St
(617) 573-9777

Don’t let the Financial District address scare you, Hillstone has a less formal feel than other restaurants in the area. One thing that adds greatly to that is the casual attire.  If you find yourself on State Street craving a burger for dinner, this is a great place to stop. You can skip the $32 Prime Rib and the $39 Filet and in favor of the more reasonably priced $16 cheeseburger. As pointed out on the menu, the burgers are house- ground each morning.
