Poorly organized. upon arrival the grills were just being fired up; the food was raw. the best thing there was the Chive Burger and the alcohol.

Extremely crowded event and an hour wait to get in. Great burgers and drinks made up for all of the short comings.

The concept is cool and the food was delicious! All the vendors brought their A game! Food came out hot and burgers were all juicy and delicious. I'm giving a lower rating due the lack of organization for the event. We waited over an hour to get in. Once inside, the lines were unorganized. So unorganized that people were constantly taking cuts in line. There weren't enough trash cans around either

A 2.5 hour wait in line with prepaid tickets is the death of any event short of the Stones! The entry situation was just horrible. Way oversold. Terrible organization.

I arrived at 12:45 for the event, an event that began at noon and ended at 5:00...by the time I arrived the line was approximately 300 yards long...I waited in the line for approximately 30 minutes and moved 10 yards and concluded that I may not get in the door before the event was over and went home. I would never wait in line for 5 hours for anything.

From Our Editors

Dine Drink Detroit's chefs will battle it out for the title of Best Burger at this culinary event. Each will be given a chance to grind their own meat blend on-site, grill up their creations and face a panel of judges who will determine the winner. Guests are invited to watch Detroit's best chefs throw down, eat burgers and enjoy Historic Eastern Market. The burger fest has grown in popularity over the past few years, and in 2015, Thrillist deemed it one of the 12 Things You Absolutely Must Do in Detroit This Summer. Read on to get an idea of what to expect:

  • Burger samples: Attendees, not just the Burger Battle's panel of celebrity judges, get to sample the burgers the chefs from 15–20 restaurants create.

  • Live onstage battle: The attendees vote for their favorite meaty concoction, and the chefs with the top four burgers head to a stage where they prepare their burgers in front of the audience and five judges. The judges determine the ultimate winner.

  • A traffic-free Eastern Market Shed 5: To accommodate the street-fair-style setup, the people milling all around, and the various family-friendly activities, Eastern Market Shed 5 will be closed to cars and Pony Express riders for the day.
