The Best Burger in State? The Mockingburger's in the TOP TEN!
Our own Mockingbird Cafe's famous Mockingburger has just become famous across the state! The Mississippi Beef Council recently announced the top 10 finishers in their Mississippi's Best Burger Contest.
The Mockingbird Cafe is the only restaurant on the coast that made the finals.
The council will now send "expert" judges to visit the restaurants anonymously to determine the winner.
Each of the Top 10 will receive a recognition plaque and the winning restaurant will receive a $1,000 local advertising package, complements of Mississippi’s 17, 000 cattle producers through their beef checkoff program.
In addition to the advertising package, the winner will be honored during the Beef Night performance of the Dixie National Rodeo on February 17 - which is Mardi Gras Day in our neck of the woods. So Bay St. Louis might have another reason to celebrate!
