Meadowlands Battle for the Best Burger

On May 14, I had the pleasure of judging the Meadowlands Battle for the Best Burger. The event ran from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the Backyard, the trackside open space where events are hosted when weather permits.

The competition featured 10 of the area’s best burger makers, restaurants, and food trucks, competing for three prizes, totaling $3,000.

Judging took place at 8 p.m. and two fans were selected to judge along with the four of us—the “official” judges. Fans had an opportunity to sample some of the best burgers in the area.

Judging was based on 60% taste, 40% presentation.


The three winners were as follows:
