Burger concocted in Valentine claims "Nebraska's Best Burger"

Posted: Updated:

A panhandle bar falls a few bites short of claiming the title of  having "Nebraska's Best Burger."

The Union's "Diet Burger," was a finalist in the Nebraska Beef Council's contest, but lost to the Joseph Angus Burger, hailing from the Peppermill & E.K. Valentine Lounge in Valentine.

The Union's meaty, cheesy concoction was a top five finalist in the Nebraska Beef Council's "Best Burger" contest.  

Union Bar owner Scott Swanson says the Diet Burger came about through a collaboration between he and two of his cooks, but he's not really sure how it got its name.

"It's a pound of beef, twelve strips of bacon and then the buns are made out of grilled cheese, they're Texas toast grilled cheese with bacon inside of it, there are about 12 slices of cheese on the burger all together." Swanson said. "It's a big meaty, cheesy burger... Nothing diet about it."

Owner Scott Swanson says he wanted to thank everyone who voted and he's proud that the Diet Burger put western Nebraska on the map.
