Union Burger makes it to next round for Nebraska's Best Burger contest, Voting begins again

Posted: Updated:

For the second year in a row, Gering's Union Bar has been named a Top 5 Finalist in the Nebraska Beef Council's contest for the state's Best Burger.

Union Bar owner, Scott Swanson, entered the Union Burger into the contest this year, a 2/3lb all-beef patty topped with breaded onion and jalapenos, with 2 slices of American cheese, a slice of Swiss, and a side of BBQ sauce all in between an onion kaiser bun.

The Union Burger received enough votes in the preliminary round to make it a finalist in the contest, and now the voting process starts all over.

Along with voting, round two of the contest consists of judges from the Nebraska Beef Council visiting each of the five finalists and tasting the burgers. 

Judging will be based on appearance, taste and proper cooking.

The burger with the highest combination of votes and judges scored will be named the winner. 

The Top 5 Finalists are:

Union Bar - Gering
Cellar Bar & Grill, Kearney
Stella's Bar & Grill - Bellevue
Peppermill & EKV Lounge - Valentine
Sin City Grill - Grand Island

Voting for the second round ends on March 31.
