The Event
Restaurants from all over Indianapolis will create their own unique burger to serve as sliders at Building Tomorrow's Annual Indy Burger Battle and you get to try each of them to decide whose is the most scrumptious(all tickets include 1 slider from each participating restaurant and 1 drink - water & beer available; must be 21+ for beer). At the end of the day, your vote will determine the People's Choice winner and local celebrity judges will determine the Critics' Choice winner to crown the best burgers in Indianapolis! We hope you'll join us in enjoying a beautiful summer day outside on Georgia Street in Downtown Indianapolis with friends, music, beer/refreshments and the best burgers around!

The 5th Annual Indy Burger Battle was our best battle yet! 750 people joined us on Georgia Street and via ticket sales, sponsorships, and generous commitments from donors, we collectively raised over $30,000 to build a school in Uganda! All proceeds from the event will benefit Indianapolis-based Building Tomorrow, a social-profit aimed at ensuring all children have access to an inclusive, quality education by galvanizing communities to support thriving schools in underserved areas.

While schools were being built, burgers were battling it out. Flamme Burger won their second straight Critics' Choice Championship and Hops & Fire Craft Tap House won the People's Choice Championship in their first year battling. Additionally, our celebrity judges handed out some honorable mention categories of their own:

Athletes' Choice - Red Lion Grog House
