The Warming House

The Great Minnesota Burger Bracket has come to a close. Starting at the end of February we sought out guidance for the greatest burgers all across Minnesota. We received over 200 entries and identified 101 different burger spots. After dividing them up geographically and running some sesame seeding rounds, we arrived at the Elite 8 Burger Plate. They went head to head throughout March.

Finally, we have crowned the winner: The Rusty Nail in Battle Lake! Congratulations on your win, your wonderful fans and delicious burgers!

And thanks to everyone who voted and spread the word for their favorites, because really, if even one person learned about a new favorite burger joint because of this, we’re all winners.
