Will the “Red Zone” buffalo wing-style burger with blue cheese and hot sauce slaw dominate, or will the “Challenger Chili Burger” with cheddar cheese and crushed Fritos sack the competition? Actual recipes for all five burgers will be posted on Courtyard’s Facebook page throughout the 10 days that the poll is open. For those adventurous burger connoisseurs who want to try out something new, this is the perfect opportunity. Who knows, one of these might even be incorporated into your own tailgate menu. The burger with the most votes will be available to guests at more than 400 Courtyard Bistros across the country by December and throughout the football season.
