There's so many different veggie burger brands available at most grocery stores these days. Wondering which is best? Read on to find out! While these are my personal favorites, you may be looking for something else in a veggie burger, so, if you find that you don't like the first one you try, make sure to try another brand until you find one that suits your tastes.

Who doesn't love the smell of mushrooms and onions on the grill? Boca brand Roasted Onion veggie burgers are a hearty and flavorful veggie burger that definitely stands out above the rest and comes in a regular and organic version. My only complaint about the Boca Roasted Onion flavor is that not enough stores carry it!
Amy's brand of organic vegetarian products makes several types of veggie burgers, but my favorite is the Texas Burger. Its got a hint of real barbeque flavor, a great texture and its certified Kosher as well.
This isn't the veggie burger to try if you're looking for a genuinely meaty taste and textures. Made from vegetables rather than a chewy meat substitute, Gardenburger's Veggie Medley burger is a lighter and high-fiber veggie burger. If you generally don't like mock meat products, this is the veggie burger for you.
Boca's Original Vegan Burger has a very meaty, chewy texture and is lower in fat than most other veggie burgers with just a half a gram of fat per patty. Because it has such a meat-like taste, I find that it can be a bit bland. Try sprucing it up with a bit of garlic salt and a dash of pepper or barbeque sauce before cooking.
It's not exactly a veggie burger, so it doesn' really qualify, but Gardenburger's Chik'n Grill patties a chicken substitue that can be grilled or cooked and prepared just like a veggie burger and they taste so great I just had to include them! They've got a very chicken-like and smoky flavor that's great on a bun or crumbled into pastas or stirfries. Yummm!
