Or will they change it up and build a new burger for the battle? This Tuesday (4/24), they'll be facing off against High Pointe Restaurant & Tavern (Niles), known for their awesome burgers. Will High Pointe come up with a recipe to knock out their opponent, or will Lake Tavern ride their accolades on to victory? Winner will face Peter Allen Inn.
ROUND 1, MATCH 8 - Magic Tree Pub & Eatery won the 2016 Meat 16 with a burger deserving the award. After a disappointing early round defeat last year, they come in with revenge and undoubtedly, an amazing, delicious burger for their match on Wednesday (4/25),
