One of the most important parts of Burger Week is determining once and for all, through a highly imperfect bracketing and voting system, which burger is the best burger of all Los Angeles. We've chosen 16 burger contenders in four categories from a list of Eater Burger Committee faves and reader submissions. The four categories are fast food style burgers, pub style burgers, upscale burgers, and wild card burgers.
Apple Pan and Umami are confirmed IN for the final round of voting tomorrow, and so far The Oinkster is killing its competitors in best fast food-style burger. Now, for the Wild Card round, a smattering of other burgers. These guys are burgers readers wrote in about the most, burgers from Burger-centric restaurants that didn't fit into the other categories, and burgers that are perhaps a little weird, a little wild. Since it's the Wild Card round, we threw in five contenders.
