Each and every year, the New York State Beef Council hosts the ever most famous competition to determine what restaurant has the best burger in the entire state of New York. After months of voting, a winner has been selected and the best burger is right here in Central New York.

The contest was announced back in April and the New York Beef Council took nominations from the public of their favorite businesses with what they believed had the best burger. A top ten was selected back on April 18 that consisted of the following burger hot spots:

  • Ben's Fresh
  • Talking Cursive
  • Madison Bistro
  • Illusive Restaurant and Bar
  • Neir's Tavern
  • Butera's Craft Beer and Pizza
  • Brewer Union Café
  • Bear Creek Restaurant
  • The Angry Garlic
  • Ale n' Angus Pub

From those ten, a final four was voted on. The Brewer Union Cafe in Brewerton and Ale ‘n Angus in Syracuse joined Ben’s Fresh of Port Jervis and Illusive Restaurant and Bar of Rensselaer in the final cookoff at 1PM on May 9 at Onondaga County Community College. A panel of judges selected the winner. So, who took home the title?

If you're familiar with this contest, you know that Ale n' Angus has taken home the title the past five years, and this year was no different. They won the competition this year with their  "Holy Smokers Burger."
