The Best Burger in Iowa for 2019 Has Officially Been Named
We have a winner! Back in March, the 10 finalists in Iowa's Best Burger Contest were revealed, but only one could come out on top. That winning restaurant is Wood Iron Grille in Oskaloosa!
The Iowa Beef Industry Council's official website states:
"The award-winning burger features applewood smoked bacon, a sweet and tangy onion jalapeno jam, and smoked cheddar cheese. If the eye-catching scenery and environment of the Wood Iron Grille does not draw Oskaloosans and out-of-towners into the restaurant, their delectable burger will surely do the trick."
Wood Iron Grille hasn't even been open a full year, but it's already getting a lot of positive attention. There are over 150 reviews on their official Facebook page, with an average score of 4.8 out of 5 stars. They were chosen as the winner by a panel of anonymous judges, with taste, doneness, and presentation as the main focuses. You can read more about the restaurant and the contest itself HERE.
Next time you're over in central Iowa, you may want to give this place a try! It's about an hour and 40 minutes from Downtown Cedar Rapids.
