Let’s talk burgers. Specifically, how excited we are for the second annual Sacramento Burger Battle, going down on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at Raley Field. Last year’s event was one of the highlights of our summer! About 1,000 people descended onto the infield at Raley Field and tasted burgers from top area restaurants/chefs, voting for who they thought was the best. Rocklin’s The Chef’s Table took home the highly coveted championship belt, voted on by a panel of expert judges; the People’s Choice Award went to local food truck favorite Krush Burger. This year’s Burger Battle will be even bigger, better and tastier. The participating restaurants are: Relish Burger Bar, de Vere’s Irish Pub, Bacon and Butter, Ten22, Roxy Restaurant and Bar, Capitol Garage, Papa Dale’s Drivin’ Diner, Formoli’s Bistro, The Eatery, Broderick Restaurant and Bar, Willie’s Burger, Hawks Restaurant and Ettore’s—and, of course, last year’s winners, The Chef’s Table and Krush Burger, have been invited back to defend their titles. Talk about tough competition—those are hands-down some of the best places in town to get your burger on!
