We are happy to introduce a new column on McHenry County Patch sites — a column centered around food, local restaurants and you.
The weekly Chowdown Showdown is meant to be a way for readers to pick and vote on their favorite places to get certain entrees in McHenry County. Each week, we will ask you to tell us your favorite place to get a cup of coffee or bowl of chili or breakfast.
This week we want to know, where is the best place in McHenry County to get a burger.
You can let us know your favorite spot by commenting below. You will be able to submit your vote through 5 p.m. Tuesday.
From there, we will take the top three finalists and post in an article first thing Wednesday morning. Then it will be time to vote again — this time for the Chowdown Showdown champion.
Voting will continue through 5 p.m. Friday, and we will announce the winner first thing Saturday morning.
If you are really pulling for a certain restaurant, you can share this column on your personal Facebook page and Twitter feed and ask your followers to vote.
This is all about participation so we hope you will chime in and check back.
So, without further ado, lets get the voting started. Patch readers, tell us by commenting below, where is the BEST place to get a burger in McHenry County?
