And The Winner Of The Summer Burger-Off Is!

And The Winner Of The Summer Burger-Off Is!

During the summer of 2012, I set off on a quest to find the best cheeseburger in my area. I was on a mission to re-capture the chesseburger taste of my childhood. You know, when beef was real and not loaded with hormones and fillers. I visited a number of burger joints in New Jersey and New York.
