The 7th annual Hamburger Festival was held in Akron, Ohio last week. Many people attended and had a great time trying out burgers from many restaurants including Hodge Podge Food Truck, Max & Ermas, MotorMouth Food Truck, White Castle, The Steel Trolley Diner, Menches Bros., The Barley House, and many more ! There was live music, an eating competition, bobbing for burgers, and a competition in several categories between the restaurants. I was asked to judge again for a second year, and I happily agreed. Elaine Cicora from Scene Magazine and a group of guys from the Mahoning Valley Burger Review Board were my fellow judges.
We each sampled 25-30 burgers that had been entered in three different categories. All were good, and some were great. My favorites included a reuben burger (MotorMouth) and a bruchetta burger.
