Upstate New York Ignored On Food Network's 100 Best Burgers

In a recent list of the "100 Best Burgers In America" from Food Network, Upstate New York was completely ignored. The list from Food Network highlights over 105 restaurants from across America where you can find the best burgers

The only New York restaurants that made the list were ones in New York City. It's as if Upstate New York didn't even exist. Which is ironic because one of the best burgers in the state is from Central New York.

The New York Beef Council named the Best Burger In New York State from Ale 'n' Angus Pub in Syracuse. They were voted “Best Burger” in New York State for 2021. They also claimed the same title in 2012, 2013, 2018, and 2019 from New York Beef Council.
