There’s nothing like the satisfaction of a great burger—and nothing quite like the disappointment of a bad one. When you’re on the road, there’s little room for error, so we asked three burger-meisters for tips on where to go.

Randy Garutti is the New York-based chief executive officer of Shake Shack; Scott Collins founded Meatliquor restaurants in London with chef Yianni Papoutsis; Uwe Opocensky is executive chef at the Greater China Restaurant Co. in Hong Kong. He previously held that role at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, then switched to burgers from fine dining.
