Editor’s Note: Last year, Michael and Nicole Borrell began reviewing Lebanon Valley’s restaurants and eating attractions as the Lebanon Valley Food Critics. Since then, the couple has aimed to offer unbiased reviews of the eating and drinking establishments the Lebanon Valley has to offer. LebTown is pleased to be partnering with LVFC to share these reviews with our readers. Bon appétit!

Welcome to the first season of the Lebanon Valley Food Critics’ highly anticipated Lebanon Valley Burger Wars. Four entrants from the Valley will compete to be declared the winner of Best Burger in The Valley.

Our judgement will be based upon several factors including presentation and composition of the burger, messiness, and overall impression. To keep things even, we will only judge one burger from each restaurant and all burgers will be cooked to the same temperature, medium.

We continue in the northern portion of the Lebanon Valley at a place which was originally known as a local food truck but has since opened a new restaurant, Wich Way Sandwiches, located in the small village of Bunker Hill.

This restaurant offers a simple menu of burger options for weekday lunch and weekend dinner crowds. They feature beef for their patties that is locally sourced from a nearby farm.

Our selection for judgement this evening was the bacon cheeseburger ($10) with lettuce, tomato, and onion. This burger comes on a toasted brioche bun, and you get your choice of cheese.

The patty was fresh and tasted like a quality burger. It is not the largest burger patty out there. I would like to have had some more bacon on top. The simplicity of the burger allowed for you taste the burger meat and let the toppings be the toppings.

As an aside, even though it is not included in the judgement, get the onion rings as a side.

How will this burger stack up against the others? We shall see!

Next up we will travel to our other entrants: Downtown Lounge and Richland Railroad Diner. After which, we will announce our winner.
