Join in on all the food and fun, June 3, 2017 in Downtown Opelika, and if you think you can take home the trophy you are invited to fire up your grill and let our judges decide. There will even be a special appearance by Aubie! 

This event will benefit the Food Bank of East Alabama's Back Pack Program, which aims to provide meals to area children who often don't have a reliable source of nourishment outside of the classroom. Families are encouraged to come out for a day of food and fun at the third annual Burger Wars Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on North Railroad Avenue in Opelika.

Presenters of the event will be the Opelika Rotary Club and Happy Hour Satellite Rotary Club. The sponsors for the event are Wickles Pickles, Allstate Prewett Insurance Group, S&S Termite, Smith-Kastner Wealth Management, Capell & Howard, Alsobrook & Agricola, Frederick-Dean Funeral Home, and Burt Employment.

The event will follow Touch-A-Truck, which will be held that morning in downtown Opelika.

There will be 20 grillers competing at the event in three categories. The categories are professional, corporate and tailgater. Tasting tickets will cost $2. Attendees will be able to sample and vote for their favorite burger.

The Auburn and Opelika fire departments will square off against each other in the Big Bite Challenge sponsored by Alsobrook & Agricola and Niffer’s at the Tracks.
