The Best Burger in New York State: Ale 'N' Angus Pub's Syracuse Crunch-inspired Power Play Burger is an 8-ounce angus patty topped with strips of slow-cooked prime rib and American cheese.
The New York Beef Council's second annual Best New York Burger contest has a winner: the Power Play Burger from Syracuse's Ale 'n' Angus Pub. A team of judges visited each of the 10 regional finalists, from Buffalo to New York City, and announced the state's winner on Tuesday.
Owner Randy Beach told The Post-Standard in March that the Power Play Burger is an 8-ounce angus patty topped with delicious strips of slow-cooked prime rib and American cheese. It's named after the Syracuse Crunch hockey team after players, coaches, fans and even owner Howard Dolgon helped develop the hamburger creation a few years ago. "Congrats to #Syracuse based Ale N Angus Pub on winning Best Burger in #NY with Power Play Burger!" the Crunch's official Twitter account posted, along with a photo.
The Ale 'n' Angus Pub is located at 238 Harrison Street, just a short walking distance from where the Crunch play in the War Memorial. The New York Beef Council presented the award at the downtown Syracuse restaurant Tuesday morning and invited Central New York burger lovers to come out and try it sometime soon.
