The New York Beef Council launched its fifth annual “Best NY Burger” Contest this April by soliciting online nominations from NY consumers as to what restaurant served the best burger.
Syracuse, NY | May 2022
The New York Beef Council asked a simple question in April, “Who has the ‘Best New York Burger”’? After many nominations, votes, and debates this question has been answered through the taste buds of consumers and the final tasting efforts of our panel of judges.
The 2022 “Best NY Burger” Winner is Syracuse’s Ale `n Angus Pub, with their “Holy Smokers Burger”!
The New York Beef Council launched its fifth annual “Best NY Burger” Contest this April by soliciting online nominations from NY consumers as to what restaurant served the best burger. The Top 10 nominated burgers were identified and put to a vote vying for “Final Four” honors. The “Final 4” burgers were then judged through a blind taste test by a panel of judges, which judged the burgers on taste, presentation, creativity, and service.
The Ale `n Angus Pub’s “Holy Smokers Burger” is made up of an 8oz Certified Angus Beef patty and topped with Smoked Beef Brisket, Pepper Jack Cheese, House Made Seasoned Onion Straws, House Made Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce all on a Pretzel Bun and served with Tater Tots.
The NYBC hosted a Facebook Live where they announced the winner and congratulated Randy Beach, owner, and Matt Beach, manager of Ale `n Angus Pub on May 9th, 2022 during the in-person cook-off at Onondaga community college in Syracuse, NY.
