Featuring a few locations throughout Boston, Uburger is the go-to for an affordable, quick frappe and burger. One of the best creative burgers it features is for those with a big appetite. Uburger takes double cheeseburger patties with two slices of pepper jack cheese, jalapenos and banana pepper rings for a super-sized burger called the Stunt Double Cheeseburger, for only $7.25. The menu offers 30 toppings to pick from if you would rather create your own sandwich featuring the 1/4-pound beef or veggie burger with your pick from cheeses, meats, veggies, sauces and more.
