Need more burgers in your life?

Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best affordable burger spots in Raleigh, using both Yelp data and our own secret sauce to produce a ranked list of the best spots to fulfill your urges.

1. Berkeley Cafe


Topping the list is Berkeley Cafe. Located at 217 W. Martin St. in Central, the bar, which offers burgers, sandwiches and more, is the highest-rated cheap burger spot in Raleigh, boasting four stars out of 53 reviews on Yelp. 

Yelper Jeff P. wrote, "Went in for a late lunch and it wasn't very crowded. Got my order taken right away and got my lunch very soon after. Had a burger and fries; they were excellent. The homemade chips are incredible too."

Yelper Emily D. noted, "Their psycho killer burger is so good that I frequently drive an hour and a half to Raleigh just to get one."

2. Mojoe's Burger Joint


Next up is Glenwood South's MoJoe's Burger Joint, situated at 620 Glenwood Ave. With four stars out of 338 reviews on Yelp, the spot to score burgers has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for a cheap option. 

Yelp can offer more information about MoJoe's Burger Joint.

"MoJoe's is a classic 'burger joint,'" the business says in the history section of its Yelp profile. "We opened in 2002 and have been at the top of the Raleigh burger scene ever since. We serve 100% Angus Choice beef patties made by hand every day."

3. The Mecca Restaurant


The Mecca Restaurant, a breakfast/brunch and New American spot that offers burgers and more in Central, is another affordable go-to, with four stars out of 176 Yelp reviews. Head over to 13 E. Martin St. to see for yourself. 

Yelper Ashton W. wrote, "If you only experience a few restaurants in Raleigh, make sure this place is one of them. The definition of a local institution; this place has been serving comforting Southern food to locals since the 1930s at all hours of the day."

Yelper Zac G. noted, "The menu is equally immune to faddishness, offering Southern favorites (fried chicken, fried fish and chopped BBQ), a few nods to the founders' heritage (a Greek salad and Zorba's beef tips) and the eyebrow-raising Garry Dorn burger (a veal cutlet sandwich)."
