Join local restaurants in this annual bragging rights competition & fundraiser for naming the “Best Burger in Tampa Bay”, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting The VooDoo Chef Foundation and their community efforts through culinary! Burger Showdown is FREE to attend! Burger sampling tickets and beverages are available for purchase. Burger Sampling Tickets allow for the event attendee to sample (1) burger from each of the restaurants competing in Burger Showdown and vote on their favorite, resulting in the 'People's Choice Award'. A panel of culinary and local celebrity judges will award the 'Best Burger in the Bay', 'Best Beef Burger', 'Where's The Beef?' (chicken, veggie, etc.), 'Best Use of Bacon' and 'Bring the Heat'. We are also excited to announce NEW categories the panel will award this year including 'Best Side Dish' and 'Best Use of VooDoo'.
