The burger: Bash Burger
The situation: A quarter of a full-sized burger topped with caramelized onion and bacon jam, shaved pickles, secret sauce, and American cheese.
Execution score: 5. Despite being the People's Choice winner of the last Burger Bash in New York, this bite failed to live up to the hype. The patty was too raw and chewy to be juicy, the meat was underseasoned, and the onion completely overwhelmed the rest of the burger's elements.
