"Head to one of the Grill Marks locations in Greenville or Columbia to enjoy the best burger in the state. You can build your own, selecting everything from the type of patty to the toppings and bun. If that's not decadent enough for you, go with the French Connection, which features roasted garlic, brie, caramelized onions, and Cabernet ketchup. Try to leave room for a Grill Marks shake, which arrives piled high with toppings and whipped cream — a dessert in itself."
