Burger Brackets: Matchbox vs. Union Street Public House

Welcome to Burger Brackets, where we ask you to vote to discover the best burger in Washington. Today’s face-off is…

Who makes the best burger in Washington? We're holding a March Madness-style, bracketed face-off to find out. Check back every day at 10 AM and 2 PM for continuing burger vs. burger competitions. And don't forget to vote for your favorites!

Billy Martin’s Tavern and Nathans, two longtime Georgetown favorites, went head-to-head in our last burger face-off. The winner? Martin's, though not by a wide margin. Nathans pulled in a respectable 49 percent of the votes, compared to Martin's 51 percent. 

Today’s burger competition? Check below.

Matchbox: It might be best known for its sliders, but this Chinatown pizza bistro also puts out a worthy full-sized patty, topped with Gorgonzola, cremini mushrooms, and bacon.

Union Street Public House
: The patty at this Old Town tavern is made from Angus beef and offered with a wide variety of cheeses, from havarti to bleu.

Who makes the better burger? Vote in the poll below, then leave your thoughts in the comments.
