Do you love a good burger? Have you wanted to take part in a competitive burger eating competition? Take a trip on New York's Burger Trail.

First off, before we fasten our seat belts just know they are Hamburgers, or Burgers. We don't refer to them as HAMBURGS. What is a hamburg? It almost sounds like Ham-Bird. That would be an interesting dish to sample.
