Some places to check out would dependant upon atmosphere, and your time limits.. I grew up in Harrisburg so I cant speak for York or Lancaster.

#1 The Glass Lounge.

Hands down the best burgers and steaks in the burg.. medium priced estashblishment. Has a bar but best to take your time and have a seat. It gets busy so if its a weekend after 4, its best to make a reservation.

Their burger itself is hand pressed beef seasoned lightly. with a large bun. Just great meat.. not overdone.. and always cooked to perfection to your request.

2.) The Jackson House

This place is sorta to Harrisburg and burgers what Ginos is to Philly and cheesesteaks. A small establishment with limited seating.. that packs em in and gets em out.. best on the go. always good. good portions, Hand pressed burgers always overflowing.. boasting breads from philly's italian markets and meats and veggies from nearby broad st market. only the freshest here! Has semi funny hours so check or call first.

If your on the go.. especially on the weekday this is the place! Old school atmosphere, in downtown setting..

3.) Nathans Cafe

I will probly regret posting a rave about one of my favorite dives on the internet. but Im letting the cat out of the bag. Though ranked 3rd this is my most frequented establishment. Its a bar 1st resturaunt 2nd, with a slightly rough around the edges atmosphere. The burgers are always hand pressed and of good size, always cooked to your liking.. if your looking for a bar atmosphere.. and really good food.. this is your spot. If you make it here, its a must to try the cafe chips as well.. sliced fresh patatoe chips fried and baked with layers of cheese and bacon.. OMG!! its a reciped for a clogged artery but a must have!!

I will give honorable mention to a Tristate company that has a great burger with excellent fries.. Tho only reason I didnt put it in my tops is its a liitle too close to fast food.. and is a bit mainstream.. always in a popular area..

Without further adoo! Five guys burgers and fries! always hand pressed then refrigerated the morning before served.. the fries are hand ccut everyday.. and I think they make thier own peanut oil? always a truckload of peanuts there.. several locations.. so pick one out here..

again I recomend one of the above 3 over this as they all create more atmosphere and have more charisma.. and its really not the best burger.. just the best quick burger..

I would echo the previous poster's comments about The Glass Lounge. Their burgers are definitely great!

I also agree that Five Guys serves an excellent burger and fries. It is a chain and doesn't offer much in the way of atmosphere, but still a great burger. There are many Five Guys located throughout the Harrisburg/York/Lancaster area.
