Burger battle between two Twin Cities chefs/restaurants

A contentious but delicious fight to award "best burger" honors for two local businesses.

It was the "Burger Battle Royale" on KARE 11 Saturday with the chef of Gold Nugget Tavern and Grille going up against the chef of Victoria Burrow

Belinda, Dave and Bobby tried each of the burgers and voted on their favorite. 

The winner will now be served at BOTH restaurants and appropriately named the "KARE 11 Saturday Burger Battle Winner!" 

The burger will possibly be added to the menu permanently!
