2016 Pittsburgher Competition

On Saturday, August 20, 2016, 10 competitors, each vying for the title of Best Burger in the Burgh, submitted themselves for judging at the Pittsburghers Burger Bash and Chef Competition. The atmosphere was electric, each restaurant’s chefs presented their competition pieces with pride and excitement, and by the end of the day the votes were in, and the Best Burger in the Burgh was selected.

The first burger was presented by Summit Pittsburgh, located on Shiloh Street in Mount Washington.
