Patch knows readers have their favorite burgers, and we want to find them. Whether they're actually double-double patties, or slathered in bleu cheese or grilled onions or special sauce, whether flanked by sesame seed buns or sourdough, whether the lettuce is leafy or chopped, whether wearing bacon or mushrooms, there are countless combos for burgers.
Patch will be designating a "Best Burger in Town" award to one establishment in each city, or in our case, the greater Belmont Shore-Naples area.
The winner might come from a burger chain, an indie burger joint or a hoity-swank restaurant. The champ could be all-beef, no-beef, an ahi tuna burger. Every place, and every burger, has the promise of being our chanpion.
Once we get nominations, we'll have a poll for readers to vote for the best burger and also a forum to debate the issue because, really, that's going to be just as fun.
The presidential candidates can talk about health care; but right now, we want to talk about how to clog our arteries. Or, if you're into low-fat, tell us about your favorite veggie burger. (we just read about a bean burger).
The best burger. Bring it on.
Here are some places neighbors and friends mentioned today alone in a quicky Second Street random poll, but if we're leaving one off of the list, please let us know in the comments and we'll add it:
Nominate your favorite before Friday at 9 a.m. We'll start voting on Monday. If there's a tie, the location with the most positive comments win.
