CHARLOTTE, N.C. (August 15, 2018) - Earlier this month, Elevate Lifestyle announced Hickory Tavern as being voted as CLT Best Burger of 2018 during CLT Burger Week. The week-long competition presented by iHeart Media and Budweiser took place between July 16th – July 22nd.

Thirty Charlotte area restaurants were challenged to enter in the contest by submitting one craft or signature burger in hopes of being crowned Charlotte’s Best Burger for 2018. The final announcement was made on August 8th with Hickory Tavern’s “The Grad Burger” taking first place, Lucky Lou’s Tavern “Pimento Cheese Bacon Burger” taking second and Burgers and Barley’s “The Tickled Pig Burger” in third place.

“Each year CLT Burger Week continues to grow with the number of participating restaurants, number of burgers consumed, and for this year especially how excited the chefs were to create a new burger just for CLT Burger Week.” said Steve Caldwell, President and Founder of Elevate Lifestyle.

Founded over two decades ago in Charlotte, N.C., Hickory Tavern now proudly serves 13 Charlotte area locations ideal for game days, happy hours, nights out with family and friends, or special events. With an almost 360-degree view of TV’s you’ll never miss any game time action, making Hickory Tavern guests’ favorite destination during football season.

“We recently launched our new menu this year and The Grad Burger is one of the 15 new additions, so when we were approached about participating in burger week, I knew this was our opportunity to showcase what we have been working on this year.” said Hickory Tavern President and Chief Operating Officer, Paul Baldasaro.
