Burger Madness Division Finals: Chain
BGR - The Burger Joint: The Burger (with Applewood Smoked Bacon and Cheese). $8.97
Z Burger: Bacon Cheeseburger. $4.39
I'm doing this division final first, because it will be the easiest of the three. Quite simply, BGR makes a burger that doesn't taste like it comes from a chain. It was by far the best of the four, taking the flame-broiled taste of a Burger King sandwich and kicking it up (way up) with high quality ingredients. Z Burger, while tasty, could use some editing, as it sinks and falls apart against all the standards toppings.
BGR was also a little more expensive--more in line with Bobby's and Good Stuff than the other chain burgers, all of which were priced around $4-$5. However, you can taste those extra dollars. It's worth it.
