As the temperatures drop and things settle here on The Coast, we're cooking up something delicious for burger lovers abound. Newport Burger Bender returns Friday, February 17 - Sunday, February 26, 2023 with over 50 of the biggest, savoriest burgers competing for the title of "Best Burger" around town.

Newport Burger Bender is a best burger competition where local restaurants toss their best burger(s) into the gauntlet in hopes of being crowned the winner. Each year, restaurants cook up their best burgers, topped them with everything from Guinness mac n' cheese and glazed brioche donuts to secret sauce, jumbo onion rings and vegan aioli - if that's your jam - and tossed them into the ring. Then, you try one, some, or all (we don't judge) and vote for your favorite.

All burgers will be added on a continuous basis, more juicy details to follow.




Head to the Newport Burger Bender website and pick your favorite burger. The burger with the most votes at the end of the 10 days will be crowned the winner.

Voting takes place throughout the entirety of the contest, February 17 - Sunday, February 26, 2023.
