Riverwalk Trust’s Fort Lauderdale Burger Battle Aftermath

Burger Battle 2010

2 awards were given out at the Riverwalk Trust’s Inaugural Burger Battle in Fort Lauderdale, Fan Favorite and Best Burger in Fort Lauderdale. All attendees were given a voting chip to vote for their favorite restaurant, The Capital Grille won the Fan Favorite Trophy.

Both trophies were created by George Gadson, a local artist. The judges (Jimmy Cefalo, Chef Director Jack Kane, Keith Sims, Chef Allen Susser & myself) decided the winner for Best Burger in Fort Lauderdale for 2010.

Georgie’s Alibi walked away with the Trophy. Well deserved, it was my favorite Burger of the night.

2 Important notes:

1) Chef’s Allen had an awesome French Fry Bar with 2 different cuts of Fries and Sauces o’ plenty.

2) Stop Burger of Weston created a Kobe Beef burger infused with Chocolate Chips and topped with Jalapeño Chocolate Sauce. Hands down, the craziest Burger of the night.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.

    The Burger Battle was a blast I recommend this event to everyone the next time it comes around. Chef Allens fry bar was amazing!

    To Edric:

    Broward Palm Beach New Times wrote a blog about the worst burgers of the night, weirdly STOP burger wasn't featured. Maybe it's worth pointing out to the writer:
