What makes a good cheeseburger to you? For me it's all about a juicy patty, melty cheese, and a good helping of mayo and ketchup. Maybe you like to spice it up with jalapeños, or bacon is a must for you?

Well, Lovefood sought to find the best burgers in the country. They say,

With just three major components – a beef patty, burger bun, and cheese slice – cheeseburgers are pretty simple. But there are many ways that restaurants can pep things up, from using pepper jack or Swiss cheese to opting for a mouth-watering brioche or potato roll.

Lovefood's picks are based on genuine user reviews, awards and accolades, and the first-hand experience of their team.

So which cheeseburger in Michigan is tops according to love food? Just one Michigan burger joint made the list...

Congrats to Motz's Burgers!

Here's Lovefood's praise for Motz's

Folks flock to Motz's Burgers for old-fashioned sliders on soft locally made buns – and this family-owned business has been flipping burgers since 1929. Sizzled on the griddle with caramelized onions, then popped on the bun and topped with ketchup, mustard, pickles, and an optional slice of gooey cheese, this is a traditional American slider done best.

In addition to burger sliders, Motz's Burgers also serves up fried chicken sliders and fish sandwiches.
