Best Burger contest underway

The search is on once again for the Iowa’s “Best Burger.” Iowa Beef Industry Council spokesperson, Kylie Peterson, says there are some simple rules for the annual contest.

This is the 15th year the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association and Beef Industry Council have sponsored the contest. Peterson says they are going to celebrate that milestone by giving some restaurants a second bite at winning the contest.

Peterson says you can nominate your favorite burger on their website.

The restaurants that win the “Best Burger” designation see a lot of publicity and often a big boost in business. Flight Bar and Grille in Huxley was last year’s winner and the Beef Industry Council says their sales went from around 250 burgers sold each month to 415 sold a month after they won. Peterson says the winner will be announced on May 1st to kick off Iowa Beef Month.
