With less than four weeks until the Badurik’s Butcher Block Cheeseburger Challenge, there has been another major shake up. The BURGERGUYZ 2016 Burger of the Year award recipient, Fire Grill BBQ, has closed. It is reported that the Girard restaurant, that has been closed since Monday, January 9, was having financial problems. That opens the door for the next in line to compete, StoneYard Grill and Tavern of Niles. The tournament kicks off on February 8th and should take about a month until the final match between the top Mahoning County cheeseburger against the best from Trumbull County.
Congratulations to all of the competitors that helped make the first Battle of the Burgers a success! The ten local restaurants donated 15% of their burger sales at the event to Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley.
