Laguna Beach Patch is banking that our readers have their favorite burgers in this city, and we want to find them.
Whether slathered in bleu cheese or special sauce, whether flanked by sesame seed buns or sourdough, whether the lettuce is leafy or chopped, whether shouldering bacon or mushrooms or both, there are a million combinations.
So we'll be designating a "Best Burger in Town" award to one establishment. The champ could be all-beef, or an ahi tuna burger. Every place, and every burger, is unique.
The rule is that it has to come from a Laguna Beach establishment—in other words, In-N-Out, Mickey D's, Five Guys, and all those burger joints outside the city limits don't count. Neither do Umami Burger and BurgerFi, because, as much as we want to taste their succulent offerings, it's kinda hard when they're not open yet.
Once we get nominations—and you'll nominate them by telling us what your fave burger place is in the "Comments" box below—we'll have a poll for readers to vote for the best burger and also a forum to debate the issue because, really, that's going to be just as fun.
The presidential candidates can talk about health care; we want to talk about how to clog our arteries. Or, if you're into low-fat, tell us about your favorite veggie burger.
The best burger. Bring it on.
And bring an order of fries with it.
Here are some possible (but certainly not the only) choices:
Nominate your favorite before Friday at 9 a.m. We'll follow up with a poll next week to pick the winner.
So again ... tell us in the "Comments" box below what your favorite burger spot in Laguna Beach is. Uuuuuuurp!
