Boca Burger Battle Returns! Saturday, July 15, 2023

“A Grilling Affair” at Sanborn Square Park this Saturday!

By Kenny Spahn

Summer is here. The crowds are shorter, and the days are hotter. But to local Foodies that means one thing – the Boca Burger Battle! Yes, the 10h Annual Boca Burger Battle takes place SATURDAY, July 15 at Sanborn Square Park in downtown Boca Raton. Here’s where the area’s top chefs fire up the grills and create their best signature burgers, to the delight of hungry fans who’ve waited a full year for this Burgerlicious event.  Top chefs from Boca and beyond vie for the coveted Golden Burger Trophy. A panel of hungry Grill Master Judges will select their pick for “Best Grill Master,” and all festival goers (like you!) get to cast their vote for the “People’s Choice Award.”  And the best part, it all goes to benefit the Children’s Giving Foundation.

Boca Burger Battle – Sliders galore!

Don’t miss this amazing experience to savor unlimited samplings of artisan burger creations from some of the best burger masters; along with unlimited craft beers, wines, seasonal spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages; all while enjoying a fun-filled outdoor festival, complete with live music and artisan vendor’s market.  This year features an all-star line-up of returning BBB champions and newcomers alike. Defending Champion Chef Bill Ring of Boca Raton’s Burton’s Grill & Bar will be back to defend his double win (Judge’s Choice AND People’s Choice!) last year against an all-star lineup of contenders, including the Battle’s all-time most winning chef, George Patti of M.E.A.T. Eatery & Taproom.  Also vying for the coveted Golden Burger Trophy are Yard House and its new Mizner Park neighbor and hot spot, American Social; along with Deerfield Beach favorites Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox and The Cove Waterfront Restaurant & Tiki Bar; Papamigos (Delray Beach and Coconut Creek); Marcos Top Burgers, The Munchies Report and Lucky Fish of Pompano Beach.
