One of the most important parts of Burger Week is determining—through a highly imperfect bracketing and voting system—which burger is the best burger in all the Bay Area. We've chosen 16 burger contenders in four categories from a list of Eater Burger Committee faves and reader submissions. The four categories are critics' favorite burgers, classic-style burgers, new school burgers and high class burgers.

Yesterday, readers decided that Marlowe should lead the pack in our Critics' Favorite heat. Now it's time for the Classic-Style Burgers to face off. These are the simpler progenitors of today's newfangled creations, often served in dives, pubs, and places where folks just come for the burger, or the beer for that matter. Some laudable burgers that did not make the cut: Whiz, Broken Record, Grubsteak.
