Poll: Choose the Best Burger in Newport Beach

Patch seeks to crown a local eatery.

Mouthwatering. Succulent. Delicious. It's Game On in determining the best hamburger in town. Patch readers have had a week   in their little patch of America, and it's time to vote.

Texture. Aroma. Taste. Everything is in play when it comes to choosing how you want to spend your $2, or maybe you're willing to spend $9. Does cost matter? You can vote with your wallet, the same way you vote for your elected officials. Or you can simply throw your budget to the wind and cast your ballot with the best burger regardless.

The ... best ... burger. Regardless.

And if there's a burger joint that's not on the list, go ahead and write in your candidate in the comments, just make sure it's in the town that your Patch is covering. We know a good thing when we see it, and we can add it to the ballot—or count the write-in votes. Patch loves an underdog.

So take a few seconds—literally, a few seconds—and punch the ticket for some local eatery to be crowned burger champion of Newport Beach.

Voting continues through Friday, 5 p.m. At that time, we'll know who stacks up, and whose condiments are lacking.

It's burger time.

Vote for your best burger, and make your case for it in the comments. Tell us in the comments.

Visiting Orange County in a few weeks and looking forward to the food - any MUST haves? NY still thinks 5 Guys is good if that tells you anything....

TK burger with out a doubt! Islands is obviously cheating here. They are not that good.
Kevin Freese March 01, 2012 at 07:34 PM
Stopped in for a takeout burger for lunch at Island' Newport Beach on MacArthur, that was the best burger. (I went to TK because someone told me they were good, the Island's burger was way better)

Islands=Best Burger and great service TK= great budget burger and horrible service
Marla March 01, 2012 at 08:41 PM
I forgot to mention the fries because you can't fully enjoy a burger without them... TK used to have pretty good fries, not anymore. Islands has the best tasting, never ending order of fries on the planet.

Don't vote for corporate! Islands is the 1% here, where the superior Crow Burger blows their burgers off the grill and onto the floor.

Fresh ingredients? Um yes. Crow Bar all the way.
Tom Henderson March 04, 2012 at 11:20 PM
Can you read? This opinion poll is for the Best Burger in Newport Beach... not Ocean Beach (San Diego). The Best Burger in Newport is unequivocally the Black Label Burger at the Crow Bar. Period!
Tom Henderson March 04, 2012 at 11:22 PM
Can you read? Hodad's is excellent... but it is in Ocean Beach (San Diego). The best burger in Newport Beach is unequivocally the Black Label Burger at the Crow Bar.
