You’ll Flip Out for This Year’s Burger Battle


The fifth annual Burger Battle returns to the grounds of the Cauffiel House overlooking the Delaware River on Saturday, Aug. 27. Some of Delaware’s most competitive chefs will put their best burgers forward, offering guests unlimited samples as they compete for fame and glory in three categories: Critic’s Choice, Alternative Burger and People’s Choice.

Money raised at the completely volunteer-run Delaware Burger Battle will benefit The Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room, which meets the immediate needs of Wilmington’s hungry with more than 180,000 nutritious meals served annually at no cost and with no questions asked. The Delaware Burger Battle has raised more than $28,000 in its first four years.

Tickets are $50 through Aug. 26 at 6 p.m. and will be $60 at the door. (Ticket entitles you to adult beverage tastings.) Tickets for individuals aged 13–20 are $25; tickets for those aged 5–12 are $9. Admission is free for children under 5. Admission price includes unlimited burger sampling throughout the day.
