Welcome to the 2015 Burger Battle, in which 16 Seattle-area spots square off for the title of Seattle's Best Burger Restaurant. All week long, Eater is asking you to weigh in on your favorite place to get a burger.
In this competition, the focus is on restaurants that make burgers their specialty, rather than simply having one or two on the menu. The spots in this competition serve almost exclusively burgers or have burgers as the cornerstone of their business.
Each round will be an open face-off of the remaining burger spots, rather than a head-to-head battle. The battle kicked off Monday with 16 restaurants, now narrowed to four. We'll advance the top two vote-getters to the finals tomorrow, with the winner announced on Friday. Polls open at 11 a.m. and close at 8 a.m. the next day.
