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!

It was up, it was down, it was back, it was forth—and then the Elevation Burger groupies hit our web site yesterday afternoon, effectively ending any of Good Stuff Eatery's chances. Buh-bye, Spike. We still love you!

And in today's burger face-off? Check below for the competitors.

Sign of the Whale: The satisfying burgers at this downtown bar pair USDA Choice beef with an onion roll.

BGR Burger Joint: From the sesame-seed-topped bun to the hormone-free, aged prime beef, the creative burgers at this retro Bethesda spot aim high.

Who makes the better burger? Vote in the poll below, then leave your thoughts in the comments. And there's still time to vote in the Tune Inn vs. Palena Cafe face-off; that poll goes until 2 PM today.
