Where’s the beef? New York state, apparently.

Who’s got the best burger in the Empire state? Two New York organizations set out to find the answer.
The New York Beef Industry Council and the New York Beef Producer’s Association identified 10 restaurants from across New York that have the best beefy sandwiches—among them is one Western New York eatery. Here’s the list of those restaurants and their award winning hamburgers:
Bistro Tallulah (8oz Angus Burger) in Glens Falls, Dutch Ale House (Bacon, Egg & Cheeseburger) in Saugerties, The Grill at the Dome (Stuffed Banana Pepper Burger) in Tonawanda, McGirk’s Irish Pub (Irish Whiskey Burger) in Binghamton, New World Bistro Bar (Northeast Family Farm Burger) in Albany, Reese’s 1900 (1900 Burger) on Long Island, South Trenton Pub (8 Pointer Burger) in Barneveld, Turning Stone Casino/Emerald Café (Black Jack Burger) in Verona, Wally’s Pub (Wally Burger) in Canandaigua, Westchester Burger Company (Original Burger) in White Plains.
These 10 restaurants will put their award winning burgers to the test on Sept. 4 at the New York State Fair during a grill-off, where a panel of judges will determine which burger is the best in the state. The winning burger-maker will receive a plaque and a media prize package.
