Board Member Greg Bartholomew, Presents the 2011 Burger of the Year award to Chef Denny "Stu" Baumiller and co-owner Dino Haidaris.

We've had some really good burgers in the Mahoning Valley in 2011, but after it was all said and done, the Mahoning Valley Burger Review Board presented our Burger of the Year award to Sunrise Inn, (Warren).

So, what set them apart from the 11 other burgers we reviewed this year? A little bit of everything. The burger was huge, (calling it a half pound is on the light side); the fresh boule bun; and the flavor was prominent throughout the beef.

 JT said, "The seasoning was just perfect! The toppings were fresh, creative and delicious. But for me, it was the bun. That fresh baked, crispy crust on the outside, soft in the middle, boule bun is what pushed this burger to the top!"

Greg added, "The burger was big, juicy, cooked to perfection and well seasoned. The boule bun also made the burger experience that much better. It's the best bun I have had in the time I've been on the board."

Scott agreed that the bun was a "contributing factor as well as the huge, flavor-filled burger."

I, personally, have been back to Sunrise for their burger three times since our review and every time was as good as the first. I also recommend their sweet potato fries because they are thick and delicious and cooked just right.

Sunrise Inn is known for their award winning pizza and the delicious pasta they serve, and now you can add award winning hamburgers to the list!

Sunrise Inn co-owner, Kenny HaidarisKenny HaidarisCo-owner, Kenny Haidaris said, "We are very happy to win the Burger of the Year award." He also mentioned that, "burger business has doubled since our review." He added, "When you get a burger from a restaurant that doesn't grind their own beef, you just don't know what you are going to get or how old it is."

And judging by the way Sunrise Inn burgers taste, we tend to believe he knows what he is talking about! 

Our thanks to WYTV, WKBN and WYFX for again covering our Burger of the Year banquet.

There is a reason they won 2011's Burger of the Year. Just go and try any one of the delicious selection of hand-made huge burgers. Flavor, freshness and quantity.
The entire package makes for an excellent burger -- excellent!

I have been back many times and each was as good as the first time I had a Sunrise Burger.

The burgers at the Sunrise will almost(almost) make you forget about their legendary pizza. Get one of the special burgers and you will not be disappointed. Dont order these big 10 oz burgers more then medium or you might run the risk of it being a bit dry since it is 100% angus with no veal filler. I get mine med rare and it is always juicy and tasty.

Shocking...I've driven by their locations thousands of times and have never paid attention to their restaurants.

I guess its time to stop in! Honey, don't plan on making dinner!
