Best burger (for lunch) in the Epcot resort area

I'm looking for a good burger after the marathon this Sunday and am not using a park ticket this day.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

No doubt about it....Big River Grille has the best burgers on property. Although Beaches and Cream can be fun, for a really great burger it has to be Big River Grille.

Even though you're an LSU fan (I went to Tulane. "We have higher SAT's!").....

I have been repeatedly disappointed by The Fountain hamburger.....but I do love their ice cream and the Signature restaurants at Swan & Dolphin.

Big River & ESPN Zone might be 'best' burgers along Boardwalk, but Disney still has yet to create a 'must-do' burger joint......

If Starbucks was invited to Disney, how about Five Guys in the east and In-n-Out in the west....just sayin'......even Danny Meyers Shake Shack would be an improvement.

We really liked the Big River when we went a few weeks ago. We both had burgers.

Agree with Big River Grill or Beaches & Cream. We prefer Beaches & Cream, but at lunch time, it can be a long wait to be seated since it's so small.

Go to The Dolphin Fountain at the Dolphin Resort.

Better than Beaches N Cream, awesome service, no wait for a table and their burgers are amazing!

And save room for ice cream!

I'm with all the others suggesting Beaches and Cream. However, I haven't been back since the recent menu changes, so it's possible that the burger is not as good as it was before the menu changed. But before the menu changed, it was easily (in my opinion) the best burger in Disney. Hopefully it still is.
