Burger Battle

Having missed out on the Rachael Ray Burger Bash at SBWFF just last month, I was thrilled to learn that a less-popular local version was coming to town. Sample 30 burgers by local burger joints? Sponsored by Blue Moon? Yes please!

Of course, testing 30 burgers is no small feat, even for this girl's appetite! I didn't even get the chance to test the limits of my stomach, because the fire Marshall shut the event down at about 8:45. Just 15 burgers in! eek! Well, although not fair, I had to cast my vote for the best burger of the night. I was torn between the Palm Beacher from Chuck Burger Joint:

{Chuck burger, Tilamook cheddar, mustardy iceberg slaw, Walt's farmhouse tomatoes and pickles on a toasted potato bun}

or the Chuck Norris Frita from Fritaman:

{Chorizo, ground beef  with steak seasoning and julienne fries topped with groundhouse kick zesty sauce}

In the end I went with Chuck burger just for proximity's sake, but it was a close race!
Too bad I didn't get to test the rest of the burgers, some of them looked fantastic!
I guess there's always next year. Hopefully, they will have it in better facility, as to keep those pesky Fire Marshalls away!

Until then....
