Le Burger Week is a competition where restaurants compete with one another in their city for the best burger title. They get super creative to make the craziest burgers! The best part is that it isn't someone else judging the food, we get to choose!
This year we have OVER 100 restaurants participating in Le Burger Week! Winnipeg actually has the most participants out of any other city. Click here if you want to see the entire list. Don't forget to visit Le Burger Week website to vote for your fave!
