It's the fallback menu item; the reliable cheeseburger. When you're undecided about what to order at a restaurant, it's never a bad idea to get a burger. Here in Western New York, everyone talks about wings and beef on weck, but there are a ton of great burger stops as well. Some of them you have to "dig deep" for but they're worth your time.

One place that is starting to gain notoriety over recent years is Stack Burger in Lackawanna.

Located on Abbott Road in Lackawanna (near West Seneca and South Buffalo) this place is all about cheeseburger combinations and their amazing fries. I stumbled upon them last year when I was craving a burger and gave them a shot...and I was blown away by how good it was.

The best way to describe Stack Burger is a local version of Five Guys.

What makes a great burger place are the specialty burgers, and this place has them in spades. The Demon Burger, Taco Burger, and Hangover Burger are some of my favorites and definitely don't go light on portions. Definitely give the diet a rest for that day when you go! Everyone deserves a cheat day every now and then, though.

I think burgers aren't talked about enough in Western New York. If you know where to go, you can get great ones and yes, there's a big difference between an okay burger and a fantastic one.

Now, I'm officially hungry.
