Consumers Vote: Kearney Restaurant Claims Nebraska's Best Burger


      According to the Nebraska Beef Council's Consumer Choice Award, The Cellar Bar & Grill in Kearney has the best burger in the state.

      The restaurant received the most votes in the contest with their Western Burger. But because the restaurant won the award in 2011, they are not eligible to compete in the judges portion of the contest.

      "We are pleased to present the Nebraska's Best Burger Consumer's Choice award to The Cellar," said Adam Wegner, director of marketing for the Nebraska Beef Council. "It's obvious through the large number of nominations and positive comments submitted during this contest that The Cellar has gained loyal customers with their quality beef menu items."

      The contest, sponsored by the Beef Checkoff, ran from March 1st through the 30th with over 2,100 online nominations. A list of the five restaurants moving on to the judges round can be found at
