Burger Brackets: Chadwick’s vs. Harry’s Tap Room

With the elimination of several great burger spots, it's time to move on to the quarter-finals of the Burger Brackets. Today's face-off is...

Commenter slurpeeman made us laugh with his recent thoughts on what would happen if Five Guys got kicked out of the Burger Brackets by BLT Steak:

"Remember the explanation of what would happen if the Ghostbusters let their proton beams cross each other? That is the same thing that will happen if Five Guys loses this competition:

'Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.'
—Dr. Egon Spengler, Ghostbuster."

Well, even though we're still here, and none of our bodily molecules have exploded (uh, as far as we can tell), the unthinkable seems to have happened: Five Guys is out. Done. Finito. Totally had its butt kicked by what appears to be an unstoppable BLT Steak machine. We're sorry to see you go, Five Guys. There's always next year.

But moving on! There are even more Burger Brackets face-offs to vote on. Today's match-up? Check below.

And as a reminder, you can keep tabs on all the Burger Brackets and browse through past ones here

Chadwicks: The $9 burger at the Georgetown branch of this friendly neighborhood pub is nearly a half-pound of charbroiled Angus topped with lettuce, tomato, and a pickle. On Mondays you'll find it for half-price.

Harry's Tap Room: The cooks at Harry's Tap Room seem aware that their flavorful hamburger is one of the stars of the menu and treat it with as much care as they do their filet mignon.

Who makes the better burger? Vote in the poll below, then leave your thoughts in the comments. Voting for Harry's Tap Room vs. Chadwicks will go until 2 PM tomorrow, Saturday, March, 21.
