The prize for best Burger in Pittsburgh has never been so coveted as it has this year. Ten restaurants competed to a sold out crowd and over 4,000 avidly watching on Facebook. The event was held at the Rivers Casino to one of the best days Pittsburgh has had this summer.

1st Place – Bigham Tavern‘s Hangover Helper
“We start with a housemade pulled pork hash-brown topped with a 6oz Angus beef patty seasoned with our famous Coyote seasoning. Then we add Capicola, bacon, an egg, our Sweet chili sauce, our house made beer cheese, American cheese, crispy onion straws, a fresh slice of tomato, and if that’s not enough to wake up your taste buds it gets topped with Sriracha mayo!”

Bigham Tavern is on a roll: Winning not only Best Burger, but Best Wings in the Pittsburgh Magazine Best of Party a few weeks ago.
