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.
Throughout the week, readers chose their favorite burgers in every heat. Nobody was polite, everybody got real. Now it's time for the FINAL BURGER FACE-OFF! Which burger will reign supreme? Only your vote* can save them now!
*your vote and the votes of many others. It takes a village!
