There are few things more American than a really tasty burger and fries. You can find that offering on most restaurant menus across the country. But there are certain spots where a classic burger just seems to taste better than others.

Having the best burger is always subjective. Even major lifestyle publications can't agree whether the Palace Diner in Biddeford or a couple of different spots in Portland serve the best one in Maine.

And then there's the Food Network. The culinary powerhouse recently released their list of the best burgers in America, and rather than put the spotlight on a place that sits in one of Maine's larger cities, Food Network went way off the beaten path.

Food Network says if you want the best burger in Maine, you're going to have to journey to Owls Head. Specifically, Owls Head General Store. A place where you can find fudge, tote bags, and also the best burger statewide.

Owls Head General Store calls it the 7-napkin burger, a top-secret blend that Food Network fell in love with because it was so darn juicy. There's no fancy condiments or presentation that sells the burger. It's just a Maine classic, straightforward and delicious.

It's not just all about burgers at Owls Head General Store either. They serve a variety of breakfast items, pizza, and a wide selection of sandwiches.
