One Capital Region burger is among the top ten best in the state!

As a burger person, this kind of news is pretty cool to me (and has me licking my lips).  The New York Beef Council is looking for the best burger in the state, and according to, a burger from Troy is among the top ten semifinalists.

We’re not just talking burgers from the Capital District, or even Upstate New York.  We’re talking from Long Island to Buffalo- the state! The “Triple Cheeseburger” from Nighthawks in Troy, topped with a fried egg, special sauce, cheese and house-made pickles is on the list.  Voting for the winner is happening from April 22-28 at the official contest page and the winner gets announced in May.  Here’s to seeing the Troy Burger on top of the list!
