Now that our four teams of judges have been chosen and the space has been reserved for the Final Four party at Lucky's Pub on April 4, only one thing remains to be revealed: the 16 burger finalists themselves.
The competing burgers you'll see on our bracket below were chosen with no input from our judges, in an attempt to keep them as unbiased as possible. And, as previously stated, each bracket of four burger joints was based on the model designed by A Hamburger Today. Those brackets are:
- Fast food-style burgers
- Steakhouse burgers
- Fancy-pants burgers
- Pub burgers
Within each bracket are four competing burger joints. Each judging team will be assigned a bracket, with the team selecting two burgers from each bracket to advance to the next round. The advancing burgers will be announced each Monday on Eating Our Words until we have our Final Four burgers.
