April 25th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

Final FourYes this is turning into quite the drawn out ordeal, but we have now reached the Final Four of the VBB 2013 Burger Tournament to determine the Best Burger in Las Vegas. There has been plenty of hate mail, comments and controversy sent my way regarding how often folks can vote and who was included in the list. Regardless of what’s gone on, I’ve left the voting results alone to transpire as they will, and this turned into quite the battle of whose Facebook pages could generate more votes at the 11th hour. With almost 4,000 page views yesterday alone, we are left with continue reading »

The VBB 2013 Burger Tournament Round 3

April 23rd, 2013 by Erik Chudy

Elite EightWelcome to Round 3 of our overly drawn out 2013 Burger Tournament to determine the Best Burger in Las Vegas. Unfortunately I think this is turning into a contest of who has better PR and social media presence, and not really who has the best burgers in town, as In-N-Out completely lost to KGB. Both Bachi Burger and DW Bistro somehow came from behind just before midnight to beat LBS and Poppy Den respectively. While I’m not trying to pick favorites, the results of both were a pleasant surprise when I woke up this morning. Still, this is completely up to the voters, so I leave it up to you guys to vote for who you want! continue reading »

The VBB 2013 Burger Tournament Round 1 (Part 1)

April 15th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

Best Burger in Las VegasHello and welcome to the 2013 VBB Burger Tournament! I have selected 32 restaurants from across the valley to compete for the title of ‘Best Burger in Las Vegas’ as determined by my readers to coincide with Burger Week on Eater. I ranked each burger from 1 to 32 based completely on personal opinion and experience, as I always do with everything on this site. I then populated this single elimination bracket which provided some unfair matchups like Bachi Burger vs Fuddrucker’s, but there are some equally great ones. This is going to be a somewhat drawn out process, but I want to give everyone a fair amount of time to vote for their favorites. The schedule will be as follows: continue reading »
