Welcome back to the championship round of the Great Burger Battle! We’ve come a long way since the first match, where 16 patty joints beefed up their game to compete in the ultimate food fight. After yesterday’s close match between City Burger and Plan B Burger Bar, the self-named second choice has risen to #1 to take on Burger Tap & Shake in the final.
Today’s competition promises to be tougher than an overcooked Boca Burger. BTS boasts strong players like the bacon-blue cheese-mushroom Big Daddy and fiery Apache Sweat Lodge, and also claims a vocal local following (not to mention backing from chef/owner Jeff Tunks’s restaurant family). Similar praise can be said for Plan B Burger Bar, with six New England locations ready to fight for their DC branch, and a lobster-topped dish that brings the fury of a Nor’easter.
So who deserves the title of Burger Battle Champion? Is it a local favorite that can spike the competiton with its boozy shakes, or an enthusiastic newcomer ready to rise above Plan B status? Show us in the polls.
