Best Burgers in the Burgh

Today kicks off a one-week voting period for the Pittsburgh Best Burger contest held by WPXI. Taste Test Photos are now available with a video soon to follow. Judges included local celebrities like, the KISS Morning Freak show and some WPXI anchors. Someday maybe The Pittsburgh TasteBuds can participate as “celebrity blogger judges.”


Of the contestants, the Pittsburgh TasteBuds have only been to ONE of the restaurants – that statistic will need to change quickly. Much to our dismay, Burgatory wasn’t in the running – likely because they are the newest in town. If we could have a write-in vote, Burgatory would be a clear winner!

  • BRGR Bar, East Liberty
