On Sunday, October 23, 2022 we found out who had the best burger on the brick streets of Downtown Nacogdoches. The competition finale party was at the Fredonia Brewery and all of the winners were announced.

I used a burger photo from Cowboy Jack's Saloon and Grill in our first story about the competition, and it must have been my prediction of the outcome. Congratulations to them for winning the Best Burger out of the field of 8 competitors.

Participating Locations:
Brendyn's BBQ (Saturdays only after next week)
Clear Springs Nacogdoches
The Cottage Wine Bar
Cowboy Jack's Saloon and Grill <----- WINNER
Dolli's Diner
Pemberley Tea Room
Stone House Kitchen
The Fredonia Hotel & Convention Center

Their special burger recipe for the competition was made especially for this event along with all of the rest of the entrants. You can still stop into Cowboy Jacks Saloon and Grill at 422 East Main street in Downtown Nacogdoches and try the winning burger.


There was also a cash prize for the patrons that took their time to eat and judge all of these burgers. Nacogdoches Main Street also announced those winners at the event.

Brick Street Burger Battle Winners

  • $100 Winner - Mark McLendon
  • $250 Winner - Phillip Habig
  • $500 WInner - Jan Rhodes

They would like to thank everyone that participated in the competition, and as a result, over $12,000 was spent on burgers since the competition started in downtown Nacogdoches.

This was a first-of-its-kind competition in downtown Nacogdoches and I can't wait to see what Nacogdoches Main Street and Visit Nac have in store for us next.
