The vote was close, but the voice was clear.
Flippin’ Cow’s Stella Moo ranks among the top four burgers in Northern Indiana.
More than 20,000 votes were cast for the top eight in the Northern Indiana Burger Wars, and when the dust cleared, The Flippin’ Cow of Elkhart, The Lakehouse Grille of Culver, Rieglings Coppertop of Wolcottville and The View Tavern of South Bend remain of the original field of 56.
According to Robby Bearss, marketing manager for the Northern Indiana Tourism Development Commission, some contests were decided by fewer than 100 votes. Based on the results from the Burger Wars website, Flippin’ Cow beat out Valparaiso’s Franklin House by just two percentage points.
The Stella Moo will now face The CopperTop Burger of Rieglings Coppertop in the second round, which kicked off Monday, June 23. The polls will be open until noon June 30.
From there, the final two burgers will face another week of voting until a Burger Wars champion is crowned July 7.
Flippin’ Cow owner Cam Snyder was not immediately available for comment.
