DSC_9015_copyWe are the Mahoning Valley Burger Review Board, (M.V.B.R.B.), the charter members of the BURGERGUYZ organization.  Our first official meeting was July 22, 2009. We meet each month at different burger-joints in Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana counties in Ohio, and Mercer and Lawrence counties in PA. We pick apart the meals we get from the type bun, to the toppings, the seasoning, the side dishes, and even the service. Then we rate them and post a review every month. Our reviews were published in The Review Newspaper from August 2009 through January 2012, when the Youngstown Vindicator picked us up. Along with our monthly review, we also have a “burger blog” on At the end of each year we choose, from the top 2 or 3, a recipient for our Burger of the Year award. An article on our adventures was published in the July/August 2010 issue of Valley Magazine, and we’ve had numerous appearances on TV news including a 2011 interview by Stan Boney at WYTV/WKBN/WYFX studios. We were also featured on The Casey Malone Show: Local Flavor in 2011. We were invited to judge the Ohio Burger Cook-off at the National Hamburger Festival in Akron, Ohio, in 2012 and 2013. We are burgerheads and we’re proud of it! We’re ready to visit the most popular burger-joints, as determined by our readers. We take suggestions from Facebook, (MahoningValley Burger Review Board) and by email, ( So, get your favorite on our list!
