Restaurant delivery site GrubHub — which works with over 30,000 restaurants — analyzed the prices of burgers in major cities across America.

The prices were culled from a range of restaurants including traditional burger joints, pizzerias, and even a couple of Thai places.

Los Angeles and San Francisco also have a high average burger price tag at $9.44 and $9.24 respectively. So head to Philadelphia, burger fanatics — the average price is just $6.24.
