March 10, 2011

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — (http://www.stanfords.com) Stanford’s is excited to announce the ‘Ultimate Burger Showdown‘ co-sponsored by Widmer Brothers Brewery. The contest will earn top contestants much more than simply bragging rights.

Spring is just around the corner with grilling season hot on its heels: Now is the time to take on the challenge, fire up the grill and create a juicy burger that’s worthy of a big cash prize and gift cards redeemable at Walnut Creek Stanford’s, located at 1300 South Main, or at any other of the Stanford’s restaurants.

With both cash prizes and an abundance of Stanford’s gift cards on the line, the stakes are high to submit the best burger recipe.

As an additional reward, the top three winning recipes will be featured in Stanford’s restaurants during a June – July burger promotion.

                                           fries and a pickle, to the
                                           judges in a style similar to
                                           that of popular T.V. cooking
                                           programs, such as Top Chef.

“Stanford’s has always been synonymous with classic, American fare, and no meal represents the heart of the American menu as universally as a big, juicy burger with hand-cut fries and a pickle. We can hardly wait to see what contestants come up with and share those award-winning burger recipes with our guests,” says Chris Ideson, Regional Director. .
