Get Ready for A FOOD FIGHT at the Riverwalk Burger Battle!

Foodie fans rejoice! The Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale Burger Battle™, presented by RIVA, is returning for its 8th year on Saturday, May 20, 2017. The battle takes place in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale at Huizenga Plaza, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. This sizzling event will pit top restaurants and burger joints against one another.  They will show off their creative juices and grilling skills to 1200+ guests along the scenic New River. The event raises funds to support the Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale’s mission of “building and nurturing a vibrant community connected by the New River.”

A team of restaurant industry judges will award the prestigious Riverwalk Burger Battle™ trophy. Judges rate burgers on texture, flavor, use of condiments, bread selection, unique approaches, etc. Guests will also select a Fan Favorite with their Burger Battle voting chip. Distinctive ingredients from the past include maple-infused jalapeño jam, sweet onion marmalade, and avocado mousse. Restaurants compete for the titles of Fan Favorite, Burger Nirvana, Best Fork & Knife, Best Bar and Grill, Best Burger Joint, and Best Burger.
In addition to unlimited burger tasting, all event goers will be treated to a French-Fry Bar provided by Riverfront Cruises and live music from The Joe Friday Band. For $45, General Admission, guests will receive three drink tickets to wash down all those burgers with their choice of cocktail, wine or beer.
