I went last year and was happy to be able to eat different kinds of burgers and drink beer. Last year they had a bit more then that, this years they stuck to strictly burgers and beer, so for the burger lover this was an excellent event. For me I had to pace myself, but was super excited to be able to try new restaurants that I had not tried before.
Here are the restaurants that were there:
American Heritage Fine Burgers And Cocktails, Baldoria, Belcampo Meat Co, Burger City Grill, Button Mash, by CHLOE,Firestone Walker Brewing Co., Four Six Four, Grill ‘Em All, Hinoki and the Bird, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Ladyface Ale Company, Lock & Key, Macheen, Mascarpone Cheesecake by Chef Turok, Myke’s Cafe, Pono Burger, Simmzy’s, Slater’s 50/50, Stout Burgers and Beers, The Pikey, The Upper West, Venice Whaler, WOLF.
My favorites were the lamb burger from Ladyface Ale Company, delicious lamb flavors cooked to perfection. They did some kind of miracle in their amazing burger from Hiniki and the Bird. The vegetarian burger from by Chloe was also fantastic. Myke’s always pulls out all of the stops, their burger was creative and delicious, Stout also had a nice hefty burger.
