After nearly 3,000 votes, here are the results for your favorite burger joint in Southwest Michigan poll.

In the past, we asked you to nominate and then vote for your favorite burger joints in Kalamazoo or Calhoun counties.  This time, we're opening the poll up to all of Southwest Michigan.

Here's all the info for this delicious burger poll.

  • Any burger restaurants in the following Michigan counties are eligible: Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Calhoun, St. Joseph, Branch, Berrien, Allegan, and Barry
  • Nomination period: Sept. 1st to Sept. 8th, 2021
  • Voting period: Sept. 9th - Sept. 23rd, 2021
  • Results published: Friday, Sept 24th, 2021 at 7 A.M. Eastern Time
Addition voting rules: One vote per person / per day is permitted.  Votes by bots and other 3rd party IP changers will be detected and removed periodically. Votes outside of West Michigan are also at risk of being removed. Extreme abuse of these rules can lead to disqualification of the burger joint.. Keep it real, legit, and local folks.

Seriously, is there anything better than a big juicy cheeseburger?  The correct answer, in my opinion, is no.  Congrats to all of the burger joints nominated.  You'll find the full poll results below the top 5.
