Our Place Diner took home first place for the best burgers in Alabama
Judges in an Alabama Cattlemen's Association Facebook contest say, Our Place Diner in Ozark has been named the "Best Burger in Alabama."
For many regulars, this win is great for the city.
Customer Susan Judah said, “I’m so excited there are so many things in Ozark and this is just another one we can brag on. Its just really good and the owners are wonderful. All the service staff is wonderful. So I hope people come from all over to try the burger's. They'll feel right at home."
As for the owner, Tyler Wright he's just happy that this year they won.
"We made the final four last year. We didn't win. We were one of the only ones from last year that actually made it again this year, so we're very blessed very privileged and we couldn't have done it without all our employees and valuable customers. "
Some may ask what makes their burger the best? Well, the recipe for starters.
"It's a sterling silver ground beef. Its top twelve percent in the nation, its ground chuck and then we have a special seasoning blend that we put on our burgers. They're all hand patties and its all the ingredients that go into it."
The winning entry is called the “Big Bopper”.
"Different cheeses, onion rings, lettuce, tomatoes, pickle, onions a loaded down the burger.”
For one customer she couldn't resist so she had to try it.
Customer Belynda Brandt said, "I’m on a diet and I’m not supposed to be eating this right now but I had to try it because I was so proud of our hometown getting this honor and I have to tell you I have had burgers all over the world and this is wonderful."
Our Place Diner says they can't wait for next year.
Our Place Diner owners, will receive a plaque from the Alabama Cattlemen's Association and have bragging rights for a year.
