Nebraska: The Cellar Bar & Grill claims Best Burger title

KEARNEY, NE -The Nebraska Beef Council has announced The Cellar Bar & Grill in Kearney, NE, as the winner of the “Nebraska’s Best Burger” contest.

The contest, sponsored by The Beef Checkoff, ran from Feb. 15 through March 31, resulting in over 3,100 online nominations. The Cellar Bar & Grill’s Western Burger was one of the top five nominees and was awarded the best burger by a panel of judges who conducted an anonymous taste test. The Western Burger is a fresh, hand-made Certified Angus Beef ground chuck patty prepared on an open grill with Ameri-Swiss cheese, bacon, barbeque sauce and topped with a home-made onion ring.

“The Cellar Bar & Grill is certainly a worthy recipient of this award” said Adam Wegner, Director of Marketing for the Nebraska Beef Council. “All of the top nominated restaurants showed a passion for great tasting, high-quality hamburgers.”

“We are very honored to be selected as the winner in the Nebraska Beef Council’s ‘Best Burger’ contest,” said Stacey Plautz, Director of Operations at The Cellar Bar & Grill. “There’s no doubt the Western Burger has been a customer favorite at The Cellar for many years. With a mouthwatering menu, innovative promotions and a dedication to satisfying guests, The Cellar Bar & Grill has remained a place where tradition has outlasted the trendy.”
