    How is the best burger joint ranking determined?

    From Far & Wide--creator of the overall list: These burger joint rankings are based on a combination of Tripadvisor and our own editorial input. The rating is calculated from the number of five-star reviews divided by the total number of reviews.

    • Ranking ascends to "greatness" out of a possible 100 points. Zero being the lowest, 100 being the highest, of course.

    How do you get to the best ranked burger joint in Michigan?

    Slabtown Cafe and Burgers is located at 826 W. Front Street, Traverse City, MI 49684. It's like dining at someone's house indoors or the picnic tables. The restaurant looks like an old-fashioned house in canary yellow. Their joint had 68.2 points while "that place in Ohio" (said like a true Michigan vs Ohio State rivalry) only had 52.7 points.
