Swenson’s Drive-In Named One of Nation’s Best Burger Joints

Everyone loves a great burger. While dozens of restaurants across Northeast Ohio serve up some of the tastiest burgers around, Swensons Drive-In in Akron was one of only 50 establishments to earn a spot on Business Insider’s list of the “Best Burger Joints in America.” The old-fashioned drive-in ranked #21 on Business Insider’s list.

The list was compiled based on check-in data and reviews from the social media app Foursquare. As highlighted in this Cleveland.com article, Swensons is best known for its “Galley Boy” cheeseburger, a local favorite since 1934. No stranger to national praise, Swensons has been featured on the Food Network’s “Food Feuds” as well as on “The Chew.”

Swensons was the only Ohio burger joint to make the list. To see the complete list, please click here.
