WTOP TOP 10: Best Burger

Voting for the TOP 10 Contest is now closed. Winners will be announced Monday, Aug. 6 on WTOP.

WTOP readers and listeners nominated a number of local businesses serving great burgers in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Click through the gallery below to review the finalists and vote for your favorite on the final slide.

Voting will close on Aug. 3, and winners for all TOP 10 categories will be announced on Aug. 6.

Be sure to vote for our other TOP 10 categories: Best Pizza, Best Barbecue, Best Brewery, Best Brunch, Best Coffee Shop, Best Winery, Best Tacos, Best Bagels and Best Crabs.

WTOP removed Bourbon Steak from the contest because they don’t meet the preset criteria of being a local company, with locations only in the DMV. We apologize for the oversight. The business will still appear in the poll, but votes will be disregarded at the end of the contest.
