Grumps, Bronson Rock lead way into Burger Battle play-in round

Posted 8:30am on Tuesday, Jul. 09, 2013

The burgers are in the starting gate, and we’re revving up our appetites for the 2013 DFW.com Burger Battle. But there’s still the matter of the two remaining slots in the 32-burger bracket to be decided.

As we told you last week, 30 great burgers have already been seeded by our Burger Bracketologists, but we asked for your help in determining the final two slots. And after some juicy suggestions on Facebook, Twitter and online, our four hungriest bubble burgers have stepped forward.

They are:

Grumps, the big ol’ Burleson burger and top vote-getter in the play-in polls. (Grumps also has locations in Granbury, Stephenville and Cleburne.)

Bronson Rock Burgers & Beer is a relatively new spot in Keller with wood-fired burgers and a devoted following.

Burger Xtreme in southwest Fort Worth is, indeed, extreme with offerings like the Hawaiian cheeseburger and the double mega Xtreme.

Jimmy’s Jungle Burger, the Arlington newcomer on South Collins, serves up a mouthwatering signature burger.

In the play-in round, Grumps will face Jimmy’s Jungle Burger, and Bronson Rock will take on Burger Xtreme. The winners will claim the final two spots in our 32-burger bracket, which will be revealed Wednesday on DFW.com.

So loosen your belts, burger lovers, and dig in.
