Dudes - 4 Karminyan St, Netanya 09-765-3110
In the unofficial eLuna competition for the best burger in Israel, Dudes wins. This rustic, young-at-heart eatery is located on a narrow side street in downtown Netanya. Proprietor Daniel Raymond, with the equivalent of an Ivy League education in the Culinary Arts, has focused his talents on elevating the lowly burger to an art form.

The first secret is in the fresh meat, never frozen, delivered from the Golan Heights three times a week and ground twice a day. Then there is the secret sauce where the meat is marinated. Then there are the 5 unique sauces that come to your table with your burger. But the biggest secret is the restaurant’s location. But when you find it, you'll find a pay parking lot next door.

Ruben Petach Tikva - 36 Shacham, Petach-Tikva 03-7153767
Ruben is a chain of kosher meat restaurants. It is best known for its burgers and smoked meat sandwiches. But don't think that Rubin is just a burger restaurant. The most popular menu items are indeed the burgers in a variety of shapes and sizes. But there are also other high-end meats that you should not miss.

Ruben burgers range from the classic to the specialty concept burgers. They all come in various sizes, with single and double patties and a variety of add-ons. The classic burgers are the most basic and least expensive. You can soup these up with additional vegetables and meats.

At my most recent visit to Ruben Petach Tikva, I raised the ante and indulged in the Ruben Spare Rib platter, the Rubens' flagship dish. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a delicious meat dish at a hamburger restaurant.
