Burger Battle 2018


What is a burger battle?

Burger Battle Detroit started seven years ago as a customer/restaurant appreciation event held by Burger Battle founders and event sponsors, Fairway Packing, as a way to say thank you to all the restaurants that were using their specialty ground beef. What began as a celebration of all things ‘burger’ quickly became a friendly competition amongst the best chefs in the metropolitan Detroit area. The spirit of the event as a celebration of great food and friendship remains imbedded in the event seven years later. And the competition for the title of Burger Battle Champion remains as heated as it did that first year. Ticket holders are free to sample any of the restaurants burgers. There is a full cash bar, serving beer, wine and liquor. The event is family friendly, children under 5 are admitted free of charge, and there are games, and attractions for everyone. Each year also features an array of local merchants and vendors, so feel free to get in a little shopping between burger samples and a refreshing drink. Ticket holders vote for their top 3 burgers/restaurants. The top 5 vote getters then go on to create a burger for our panel of celebrity judges made up of local food critics, entertainment and sports figures and journalists. There is a limited quantity VIP/Early Entry ticket available that allows entry at Noon. Doors for general admission are at 1 p.m. There will only be a limited number of tickets sold for this year’s event – we strongly encourage getting your tickets early.
