Three Minnesota-made burgers have made the '101 Best Burgers in America' list compiled by the team at The Daily Meal.

In a recent poll of 98.1 listeners, Val's Rapid Serv was voted the best burger in the Saint Cloud area, followed by the Boulder Tap House, Shooter's, Burger Time, and 7 West TapHouse.

Yelp reviewers had it a little different for Central Minnesota. Val's Rapid Serv still took the top spot, followed by Five Guys, Olde Brick House, Lincoln Depot, and the Boulder Tap House.

The team at The Daily Meal scoured the country, looking for the 101 Best Burgers in America, and found three of them right here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

The Nookie Supreme Burger — a double-decker cheeseburger with lettuce, special sauce and three (yes, three) layers of fresh-baked bun — is where the flavor is really at.

Here's what The Daily meal had to say about the Juicy Lucy:

Here's what The Daily meal had to say about the Mogul Burger:
