Last week, the Berwyn Development Corporation (BDC) sought out Berwyn’s restaurants in search of Berwyn’s Best Burger. We asked the community to let us know their favorite places to grab a burger. Round 1 included a poll of 12 Berwyn-based establishments that serve burgers on their regular menus. The public was asked to select up to 5 of their favorite burger joints.

The top 5 restaurants that received the most votes identified their favorite specialty burger for the second round of voting. These selections are:

  • Big Guys Sausage Stand | 7021 W Roosevelt Rd | The Big Guy Burger is a hand-packed burger made fresh daily with their own special blend of whole cuts of meat. It’s served on a brioche bun with American cheese, Thousand Island dressing, shoestring fried onions and kosher pickles.
  • Bubba & Bobby’s Beef | 6333 W Ogden Ave | The Bubba Burger is made daily using fresh ground beef and a special seasoning mix. It’s cooked to your liking and then placed on a classic Turano bun with American cheese, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle.
  • Cigars and Stripes BBQ Lounge | 6715 W Ogden Ave | The Backyard Burger is an 8 oz. flame-cooked patty on a toasted brioche bun. Made with a touch of their own home-smoked, burnt rib tip ends and topped with iceberg lettuce, tomato, red onion, and sweet n’ hot pickles. For an additional $1, you can add bleu, white cheddar, or habanero & ghost cheese!
  • Culver’s | 6943 W Roosevelt Rd | The Culver’s Bacon Deluxe starts with fresh, never frozen, Midwest-raised beef and layered with two strips of crisp bacon, Wisconsin cheese, fresh lettuce, ripe tomatoes, pickles, red onion and their signature mayo. It’s served on a lightly buttered and toasted bun.
  • Paisans Pizzeria & Bar | 6226 W Ogden Ave | The Ape Hanger is hand formed from a premium mix of ground brisket, short rib and angus and topped with grilled jalapeños, grilled onions, pepper jack cheese, chorizo and guacamole on a pretzel bun.

Round 2 will bring together a group of local judges for a single taste-test event to compare each burger side-by-side. Their scores along with another public poll vote will determine the burger that can proclaim itself as “Berwyn’s Best.” For more information on the contest, visit
