South's burger at the 2018 Sacramento Burger Battle

For The First Time EVER, One Restaurant Wins Judges’ And People’s Pick For Best Burger At Sacramento Burger Battle

If you can make it out to this event next year, I recommend doing so. There’s some sticker shock with the ticket price, but for what you get it’s a steal. I tried ALL 16 burgers (super proud of myself) at last night’s Sacramento Burger Battle. I voted for Empress, but there were some tasty little treats being served up. And for the first time in seven years, the judges and the people named the same burger as the winner.

Pangea Bier Cafe came out victorious and is now the proud owner of TWO Sacramento Burger Battle belts.

Congratulations to @pangaeacafe on their unprecedented double win of both the Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice in last night’s sold out Sacramento Burger Battle event benefiting the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation charity! After 7 years and over 100 burgers sampled, this is the first time a restaurant has earned both the Judge’s vote and the People’s Choice vote! Thank you to all of the participating restaurants, judges, breweries, wineries, dessert vendors, sponsors, volunteers and attendees for making this our best event yet!

“I mean. I think it’s official,” Pangaea executive chef Brett Stockdale told Cap City Radio. So what’s the secret to making a winning burger? “It’s passion. That’s all you need to know,” said Pangaea owner Rob Archie. “It’s love, man,” Stockdale added. “You gotta make sure every burger is exactly how you want it every time.”
