Chamber hosts second ‘Battle of the Burgers’

Print Article

The second annual “Battle of the Burgers … and More!” is shaping-up to be a true “battle royale,” with last-minute challengers throwing their buns in the ring to compete for the title of “Best Burger in the Big Sky.”

The Main Event — set for Saturday May 19 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Cypress Yard event center in Whitefish — will feature at least eight different restaurants from Whitefish and beyond, including last year’s “People’s Choice” champion — Piggyback Barbeque.

Others already confirmed for the Burger Battle include: the Craggy Range Bar & Grill, Cartwright Catering, Casey’s Bar, the Markus Foods Deli, Mudman Burgers and a late entry to the contest — Front Porch Grill House out of Eureka, home of the world-famous Bubba Burger!

In addition to sampling the best burgers known to mankind, attendees will taste a variety of amazing Great Northern Brewing Co. micro-brews, enjoy great live music by the Belton Blues Band, and soak-in a bit of warm Montana sunshine outdoors at Cypress Yard.

What’s at stake? How about the bragging rights that go along with being named the undisputed Burgermeister of Big Sky Country, as determined both by a vote of the people and a panel of expert judges. Expect the chefs to go all-out to impress the judges and event- goers alike with their take on the Ultimate Burger.

New this year is a second judging category for the “Best Grilled Entrée,” which should add just a little more fuel to the competitive fire!

The event runs from noon to 3 p.m., with 21-and-over tickets selling for $30 apiece online at www.FeastWhitefish.com. For more information, call the Whitefish Chamber at 862-3501.
