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!

A commenter on yesterday's burger face-off between Matchbox and Union Street Public House quipped, "If a pizza place wins a burger contest, baby Jesus cries." Well, we don't know if they'll win, but Matchbox slid on easily to the second round. See ya, Union Street!

Today's burger challenge? Check below.

Whitlows: These $7.50 half-pound patties are grilled to order and come with toppings like jalapenos and guacamole. On Mondays, you can down them for half-price.

EatBar: It's better known for its housemade hotdog, but the $10 burger at this Lyon Park gastropub is popular too. It's elevated by herbs and a good dose of butter, then topped with sweet pickles. There's even homemade ketchup to go with it.

Who makes the better burger? Vote in the poll below, then leave your thoughts in the comments. Then go and vote in the Sonoma vs. Chadwicks burger face-off—that's open until 2 PM today.
