Winning the 2013 A.1. Burger Brackets competition may have been Burgatory’s proudest moment so far, but it was hardly its first recognition. Already this year it was voted “Best Burger in Pittsburgh” by NBC affiliate WPXI and included on Urbanspoon’s list of “Most Popular Restaurant Bars in the U.S.” Last year it was named “Best [...]
Burgatory came into the 2013 A.1. Burger Brackets an unproven competitor, but after more than 16,000 votes had been cast through six grueling rounds, the Pittsburgh burger bar with two locations but legions of loyal fans was the last brand standing and the 2013 Champion.

Are we doing Burger Brackets again? You bet.
Kansas City’s Blanc Burgers + Bottles won the first and second years’ title. Last year it was Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries—a 16th seed no less—that took the crown. Who will be the 2013 champ?
The seedings, brackets and rules, etc., will be posted here Sunday [...]
The Buckaroo Burger at Local Burger.
You can disagree, if you wish, with Midwest Living magazine’s list of the 25 best burgers in the region. The glory of the business is that there are enough great burger joints to let everyone have a different list. But you can’t fault the editors’ efforts. They looked [...]
What a weekend! What a competition! The two-time champ has been dethroned and four brash brands battle it on the Road to the Championship!
