As Northern Michigan opens, we want to get out, stretch our legs and have some fun. These are the best places to grab a burger and a beer in Traverse City.

Reviews can be quite helpful if you've never been to an area before. You can see what other people think of the place and not waste your time and taste buds on food that's just not that good. For a great burger in Traverse City, we went to Yelp! and looked at the best reviews and only included those places where you can get a cold beer to go with that burger. Read on and drool, my friend.
