Three local burgers have made it into the Top 10 for the New York Beef Council’s Best New York Burger Contest!
The “Bacon Infused Burger” at Uncle’s Tavern in New York Mills, the “Loose Caboose” burger at Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner in Herkimer, and the “Elvis Burger” at Madison Bistro in Wampsville have all made it into the Top 10. Voters submitted more than 400 nominations between April 2-13, and the burgers that received the most votes made it to the Top 10.
To qualify for the Best New York Burger Competition, burgers must be 100 percent beef patty, although other ingredients can be added, and they must be served on a bun or some kind of bread.
Voting is now open to choose the four finalists of the competition. From April 23-29 you can submit your online vote here, and the Final Four will then be judged by YELP’s Elite Squad.
