Here’s the Winning Burger From Budweiser’s Battle of the Burger 2017!
Update: Congratulations to Budweiser’s Battle of the Burger™ champion, Maggie’s Waterfront Café! The top pick on Thursday, August 24th, was the Double Bacon Delight, a smoked bacon patty, stuffed with cheddar-jack cheese and topped with even more smoked bacon and cheddar-jack cheese, smothered in BBQ sauce on a brioche roll. (Yum!) Maggie’s received a $2,000 check while the runner-up, Water Wheel Tavern, won $1,000 for their delicious Pig & Fig contender. Shout-out to all of our six competing restaurants and a special thanks to all of the burger fans who came out to crown the winner!
