The third annual Burger Bracket is coming up soon, and although we're still finding the perfect venue for you -- our readers -- to come and judge Houston's best burgers, we've already compiled the brackets themselves. But we need your help.
If you didn't like the line-up on last year's bracket (or the one before), here's your chance to make your voice heard. Not only are we choosing 16 reader-judges to help us narrow the competing burgers down to the Final Four -- as with past years -- but this year we're also asking for you to fill out one of those four brackets.
The brackets for the 2013 Burger Bracket include:
- Classic Roadside Burgers
- Pub-style Burgers
- Wild Game Burgers
- Readers' Choice Burgers
In the coming weeks, we'll reveal which four burgers will be included in all four brackets. But before we do that, we need your suggestions for the fourth and final bracket.
Do you have a favorite burger joint that's been overlooked in the past two Burger Brackets? Know of a restaurant that surprisingly specializes in excellent burgers? Got an off-the-beaten-path place you think everyone should know about? Submit your choices for our Readers' Choice Bracket in the comments section below. The four restaurants with the highest number of comments/votes will be selected for the Readers' Choice Bracket.
The sooner we get those comments the sooner the official 2013 Burger Bracket can commence, so voting closes this Friday, February 8 at 5 p.m.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
