More about the 9th Annual Burger Wars

If you are more into eating burgers than grilling them up, you can buy tasting tickets on the day of the event. These tickets are $2 each and can be exchanged to sample a fourth of a burger at any of the 30 grilling stations.

After tasting all the burgers you can, you can cast your vote for the “crowd favorite,” who will go home with a trophy.

There will also be judges there who will rate the burgers and determine winners in three categories. Categories include pro, corporate and tailgater, who will each receive a trophy. Winners will be announced at the end of the event at 2 p.m.


So, grab your buns and go hungry—the 9th Annual Burger Wars will take place right across from the tracks in Downtown Opelika.
