Saturday, October 2 (12-4 PM): There's no shortage of great burger joints in this city, but whose burger is the best? This Saturday, 17 Atlanta restaurants will compete for bragging rights in the first ever Battle of the Burgers at John Howell Park in Virginia Highland. The participating restaurants (which include Farm Burger, The Nook and Manuel's Tavern) will all be competing for the title of Best Burger. A select panel (including Fox 5 Good Day Atlanta anchor/foodie Suchita Vadlamani, Chef Hugh Acheson (Five & Ten, Empire State South), The Next Food Network Star finalist Herb Mesa and a certain Krystal lovin' Buddha) will decide the Judge's Choice title while you'll get to decide the People's champ. The cost is $20 per person and includes 20 taste tickets for sampling burger bites, fries or milkshakes. Don't forget your mobile devices 'cause you'll need them to text your choice for Best Burger among the participants. The best part: Battle of the Burgers will benefit Embraced Atlanta, a non-profit organization which collects gently used orthopedic equipment (such as wheelchairs, braces or crutches) to distribute to those in need.
