Boston's experienced a burger renaissance in the last few years, with B.Good, UBurger, Tasty Burger, and Boston Burger Company bringing their beef to our fair burg. But all these young burger turks should pay homage to the rule of Mr. Bartley's over the wide expanse of burgerdom. Sure, this Harvard Square venue is small, often claustrophobia-inducingly crowded, and cash-only. On the plus side, these burgers are delicious enough to launch a thousand ships. And we would gladly open our city gates for a wooden horse if it came bearing their onion rings.
