CHARLOTTE, N.C. — This may be the easiest order you’ve ever made.

Because at Harriet's Hamburgers, there’s only two options: hamburgers and fries.

“It’s not about reinventing the wheel, it’s about taking all of those ingredients and making them better than what they are,” Harriet’s Hamburgers co-owner Brian Stockholm said.

He and his crew set out to make Charlotte’s best hamburger.

“We cooked them 1,000 times, 1,000 different ways,” Stockholm said. “We cooked them over, and over, and over until we created that perfect, cravable hamburger.”

Each hamburger is made with humanely-raised, black angus beef from Creekstone Farms, white American cheese, housemade pickles, and razor shaved red onions on a brioche bun.

Plus, a side of fries-cut fries from Yukon gold potatoes.




The simple menu and retro decor at Harriet’s in Optimist Hall is a nostalgic throwback to 50’s burger joints.

“And it’s amazing,” Stockholm said.

Harriet's Hamburgers also has a secret menu item: “The Juicy Lucy”. It’s a “naked” hamburger (no toppings) to make room for an oversized patty that’s stuffed with yellow American cheese inside. The restaurant said it’s a recipe invented in a South Minneapolis bar in the 50’s.
