Larkburger Wins Judges’ Choice at the 2012 Denver Burger Battle

At the Denver Burger Battle on August 22, Larkburger was thrilled to win the highly-coveted Judges’ Choice Award. This was the first year Larkburger participated in the event.

Judges included Jenna Johansen (Around the World in 80 Plates), Max Mackissock (Squeaky Bean), Daniel Asher (Linger + Root Down), and Hosea Rosenberg (Top Chef Season 5 Winner).

Says Asher, “I took one bite, and I knew it was the one. I appreciate that Larkburger took a more subtle approach, focusing on a delicious burger but amped up with the Truffle aioli. After trying 11 other burgers, I still ate the whole thing and thought to myself ‘This tastes like my childhood – this is the quintessential burger.’”

The winning “Bacon-Cheddar Truffle Burger” included Applewood smoked bacon, Tillamook cheddar, Truffle aioli, House ripened tomato, Leaf lettuce, Sliced red onion, 100% Certified Angus beef and Brioche bun. Find this burger (for $7.95) at all locations beginning on Friday, Aug. 24.

“We take great pride in our burgers and using the best ingredients available, and I think the judges could taste that in our Bacon-Cheddar Truffle Burger,” said President Adam Baker. “Congratulations to an amazing team – what an exciting accomplishment, especially for a first-year entry.”
