BURGERGUYZ                                                                                       The Mahoning Valley Burger Review Board


We are an organization dedicated to reviewing hamburgers at locally owned restaurants and taverns. Our goal is to find the absolute best burgers in the Mahoning Valley. Being featured monthly in The Vindicator has brought in tips from all over Northeast Ohio and Western PA that have turned out to be awesome burgers! If you have a favorite locally owned restaurant or tavern that’s known for flippin’ a great burger, we want to know about it! We will send a highly trained task force to taste it, test it, review it and rate it. An article will be published in The Vindicator and on Vindy.com. Photos and links to all of the articles can be found on this website. Each year, in December, we choose from the top rated burgers we have tried a “Burger of the Year” recipient. We will soon be publishing a list of all 80 + places we have been. The ratings are based on our assessment at the time of our visit, comments from our followers, (good or bad), revisits, performances in any competitions or awards received from all credible organizations. We will publish updated rankings each January that will include the previous year’s restaurants, exclude restaurant closures and reflect any changes in a restaurant’s ranking due to competitions, awards or any other reason. Who is going to be in the elite – the Mahoning Valley burger royalty? Don’t keep your favorite burger joint a secret! Get their name on our list so we can check them out and give their great burgers some exposure and a shot at Burger of the Year and maybe even… Burger of the Decade!!! Email your nominee to burgerguyz@hotmail.com or leave a comment on our Facebook page.


You know what we’re talkin’ about – those disproportionately enormous hamburgers that certain restaurants and bars advertise, if you can finish them in an allotted time limit, it’s free. The kind of burgers that you’d see on Man vs. Food. We want ’em! Tell us where they are so we can send our champion burger-eaters to do battle! Leave us a message at burgerguyz@hotmail.com so we can take care of business!


WANTED: Burgerheads of all ages willing to eat burgers and write about them! Contact us at burgerguyz@hotmail.com.

  1. I think you should try the burgers at The Ice House Inn. They also have a Buddah Burger Challenge that I highly reccommend. Thanks for your time

  2. Mike’s Penn Grille in Salem, Ohio has a 6lb burger challenge. 6lbs of beef, coleslaw, french fries and what seems to be a full loaf of bread for the bun.

  3. Hugger-Mugger Tasty Recipes in New Castle, Pa. has the M.S.(Mother Ship) Gut Buster. It’s two 8 oz. Angus burgers (1 lb!!) with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion & pickles. It’s all speared together with a knife. Not any kind of challenge, but just an awesome burger!

  4. Lake tavern in Cortland Ohio is the best hamburger ive had in my lifetime. Any burger you try you will love.

  5. You need to go to Montana Rib and Chop House in Hermitage ,Pa. Best burger and food anywhere You will tell me I am right , I am positive!

  6. I really think you should try the burgers out of the kitchen inside the Dash Inn from the Dine n Dash. They have a burger called the Beelzeburger, if you can finish it.in 45 minutes you get your photo on the wall and a t- shirt. If heat is not what you prefer they have delicious stuffed burgers wrapped in steak or try the Quadruple Bypass.

  7. I am so happy you loved your burgers at Montana Rib and Chop House in Hermitage,Pa. What a fantastic review you wrote and I knew you would say that you would return! Our very place to eat.
