Mahoning vs. Trumbull field of 16 set

The 2017 Badurik’s Butcher Block Cheeseburger Challenge field of competitors is set, but not without a last minute Mahoning County shake-up.

After hundreds of comments on Facebook, and by email, Bogey’s Bar & Grill (Lowellville) is the clear choice for the last vacant slot in “The Meat 16,” which is slated to kick off on February 8th. To us, (BURGERGUYZ), Bogey’s is burger royalty and we are ecstatic that they will be in the tournament again. Last year they were eliminated in round 1 due to a miscommunication/misunderstanding, but this year, Chef Mel is confident and ready to fire up the grill!


Unexpectedly, we received a message from one of last years 2nd round losers, stating they did not want to enter their burgers. We can only speculate why, but that opens up another slot which we went to our message pool and selected The Village Pump (Canfield).

Welcome and congratulations to Bogey’s Bar & Grill, The Village Pump, and Big D’s Newton Grill on being voted into this tournament by the people of the Mahoning Valley for having “the best burger!”

Good luck to all of this year’s competitors and may the best burger win!

    1. Lol! We’re going to need a helicopter! Right now all we have available for counties outside of Trumbull and Mahoning is the Midwest Burger Championship in June. Now if you can get 3 or more people from any of those counties interested in giving us a hand, maybe we can make it happen!
