As Eater's Burger Week kicks off, so does our quest to find the best burger in Chicago. Based on the number of emails we received from all of you, it's clear this is going to be a fierce competition.
Here's how it will work: We have divided the 16 top-nominated burgers into four categories. Each day four burgers will compete in each category. Today at 1 p.m. we will start with pub burgers, Tuesday will be fast food style, Wednesday morning upscale restaurant burgers, and Wednesday afternoon, wild cards. Voting each day will continue for approximately 24 hours.
The winners from each round will then compete in the finals on Thursday to determine the juiciest, most delicious burger in Chicago, which will then go on to compete on Eater National on Friday against the winners from the other Eater sites around the country to crown the best burger in America.
So check back often and don't forget to vote. It is you, our Eater Chicago readers, that will decide who gets the crown. May the best burger win!
