Houston has so many burger joints, it's hard to keep track of all of them at times. What's even more difficult is deciding where to eat in the city when you're craving a hot and juicy burger. Finally, a burger competition in Houston is taking place tonight to crown one lucky winner as "Best Burger" once and for all. Well, for the next year at least.
Tonight, Thursday, November 7 from 6 to 9 p.m., is Houstonia's 5th Annual Burger Bash. Once a year for the past four years, Houstonia Magazine has put on a competition between the city's best burger restaurants and chefs to figure out who truly deserves the "Best Burger" title. This year, 12 competitors will be serving their delicious food to the public, who can try as many burgers as they'd like!
Tickets are $35 online and at the door, and gets you unlimited food and two drink tickets. That's right, tonight will consist of burgers and booze for Houstonians. As if this competition couldn't get any better!
International Smoke, BuffBurger, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, and Rodeo Goat Houston are just some of the 12 competitors going head-to-head for the title. Saint Arnold Brewing Company will be serving up some awesome drinks with only the best booze. Ketel One, Captain Morgan and Crown Royal, we're looking at you. Plus, Tiff's Treats will be there giving out cookies!
Whatever plans you had for the night, cancel them. This Burger Bash only happens once a year and is a great excuse to get your grub on. Now we'll finally know where to go to get the best burgers in the city.
