Yelp notes on it’s methodology:

+ We identified businesses in the restaurants and food categories, with a large concentration of reviews mentioning “burgers,” then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. 

+ If a business with multiple locations appears more than once on the list, we keep the highest ranked location. 

+ When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of February 8, 2023.

In Virginia, six restaurants made the list, including four in Northern Virginia and two in Coastal Virginia. On North Carolina’s Outer Banks – a nearby destination often visited by folks in Coastal Virginia – one restaurant received a nod.
