In celebration of National Hamburger Month Melissa Stanger and Alyson Penn, of Business Insider, conducted rigorous journalistic research to find the very best burger in every state, from mom-and-pop joints to celebrity-chef restaurants and everything in between.

Based on accolades, reviews, and their own stomachs, they came up with a comprehensive list that allows readers to devour a great burger anywhere in the U.S.

Who is the winner in Pennsylvania?
