Home Newsroom 200. Cast Your Vote in Meatheads BHS Burger Battle

A champion has been crowned in Meathead’s BHS burger eating challenge from Monday night, but the contest is just beginning. Their month-long Burger Battle is officially underway, with Meatheads’ menu now featuring two signature burgers designed by both teams in this competition. The Barrington High School Cheerleaders’ burger is called “The Billy” and the BHS Football Players burger is called “The Bronco”. Whichever team sells the most of their burgers between now and Sepember 22nd is the winner and we’ll be monitoring our reader favorites throughout the contest here at 365Barrington.com.

Meatheads will be tracking the sales of the “Bronco” and “Billy” burgers and they’ll donate 10% of the sales of each burger back to the organization at the end of the contest.

That means we all play a role in this Burger Battle. If we buy as many “Bronco” and “Billy” burgers as possible this month, that’ll increase the sum Meatheads will donate back to BHS. The actual winner will be determined by burger sales, but we’ve set up a poll to follow our readers’ favorite burgers. You can enter your vote via this poll which you’ll find in the sidebar at 365Barrington.com through the end of the contest.

Now for more of the juicy details and a closer look at the special burgers being offered in this contest…

“The Bronco” or the football players’ burger is made with 1/3 lb Certified Angus Beef, American cheese, bacon, cajun fries, ketchup, lettuce and grilled onion.
