The online voting for Nebraska's Best Burger contest has resulted in five finalists--Stella's Bar & Grill in Bellevue, Dinker's Bar & Grill in Omaha, The Cellar Bar & Grill in Kearney, Chute #3 in Scottsbluff, and Ole's Big Game Steakhouse & Lounge in Paxton.
More than 3,100 nominations were received from Feb. 15 to March 31 for 364 restaurants statewide through the online voting system on the Nebraska Beef Council's website.
A panel of anonymous judges will evaluate the top nominated burger at each restaurant based on taste, proper cooking and appearance. The winning restaurant will be recognized by the beef industry with a plaque and promotional assistance valued at $2,000.
"We had a tremendous response to this contest" says Adam Wegner, director of marketing for the Nebraska Beef Council. "There were numerous restaurants from every corner of the state that received strong representation."
