Burger Brackets: Matchbox vs. Capital Grille

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

And we edge ever closer to the end of the second round in the Burger Brackets. Elevation Burger is currently battling it out over here with Palena Cafe; and in the most recent face-off, Harry's Tap Room trumped Quarry House Tavern's burger. Sorry, Silver Springers. 

Check below for this afternoon's burger challenge… 

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. Matchbox recently bested Union Street Public House.

Capital Grille: The Capital Grille's jumbo patty is formed from a mixture ground beef, minced bacon, and finely diced onions. Capital Grille beat out Clyde's in the last round.

Who makes the better burger? Vote in the poll below, then leave your thoughts in the comments. And while you're at it, make sure to vote in the Elevation Burger vs. Palena Cafe face-off.
