The search for Michigan's Best to sample a summertime favorite
MLive entertainment reporter John Gonzalez has explored some of the best destinations for BBQ, ice cream, breakfast, and even frights in Ann Arbor and across the state in his Michigan's Best Series. Now, he's moving on to an All-American favorite, the hamburger.
There's been no shortage of burger-related news in Ann Arbor over the last year, including the undetermined future of Blimpy Burger to the addition of Elevation Burger and BurgerFi to the dining scene.
Will one bite from a burger in Washtenaw County send John to hamburger heaven or will it leave him hungry searching for more?
Nominations for which local burger is your personal favorite will begin tomorrow here on AnnArbor.com, and voting for where Gonzo will visit begins on May 31. For more information about his best burger search and to nominate a burger outside Washtenaw County visit his story on MLive.com.
