Burger Battle to return on Aug. 26


The annual Burger Battle will return on Aug. 26.


Delaware chefs will compete for Critic’s Choice, Alternative Burger, and People’s Choice awards.

Proceeds from the all-volunteer event will benefit two Delaware nonprofits: Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room, which meets the immediate needs of Wilmington’s hungry, and the ProStart Program of the Delaware Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, a curriculum that provides real-life experience opportunities and builds practical skills for high school students.

In its first five years, the Delaware Burger Battle served more than 16,000 burgers and 3,000 people, generating more than $37,000 for Delaware nonprofits.

The 2017 Delaware Burger Battle begins at noon on Saturday, Aug. 26 on the grounds of the Cauffiel House, 1016 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington.

Any restaurant interested in entering the Burger Battle arena can contact JulieAnne Cross at ketchup@deburgerbattle.com.

Burger Battle attendees can enjoy all the burger samples they can eat from participating restaurants. (Stretchy pants recommended.) Beer and wine are included in the ticket price for adults, while soft drinks are available for children and designated drivers.

Tickets are $50 through 6 p.m. Aug. 25 or until they sell out. Any unsold tickets will be $60 at the door. Tickets for teens ages 13-20 are $30, and children ages 5-12 are $10. Children under five are free.
