40 restaurants nominated for ‘Best Burger’ in New River/Greenbrier Valleys

By RealWV staff,

We asked you to recommend your favorite burger in the New River/Greenbrier Valleys. And y’all nominated 40 different burger joints across ten counties!

We planned to take the nominees, put them in a poll and determine the Top 5. But we can’t do one vote to get from 40 down to just 5 spots. In order to give everyone a chance to vote for their favorites, we are grouping the burger joints into four different groups.

Here are the groups along with the day their votes will occur:

Vote as many times as you want. The polls for each group will be on our Facebook page each day. The top three vote-getters in each grouping will advance to the next round.

You made all the nominations, and now your votes determine the winner. As with all of our contests, national chains aren’t eligible to participate. Only West Virginia businesses! And for this particular contest, only those located in the New River & Greenbrier Valleys. That’s Raleigh, Fayette, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Summers, Monroe, Mercer, Wyoming, and McDowell counties. 

When we’re done, we’ll publish a list of all the best burger joints you’ll just have to visit.
