Downtown Burger Battle

The January First Friday will kick off the Downtown Burger Battle that will continue through the month of January.  Participating restaurants will exemplify the breadth and variety of restaurants downtown by showcasing the classic American burger.  Come downtown to enjoy a burger then rate it to see who the restaurant winner will be at the end of that month.

Customers will assign up to five points in each of five categories for every featured burger they try.  The categories include: Patty, Presentation, Toppings, Bun and Value.  The burger with the highest average points at the conclusion of the battle will be declared the winner!


Those who complete and turn in rating slips will be eligible to win a grand prize of a gift card to each of the participating restaurants.  Did you try a featured burger that you absolutely loved?!  Beginning January 2nd, post a photo of your burger to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the restaurant name and the hashtag #BurgerBattle15 to be entered to win a weekly restaurant gift card drawing!
