When it comes to burgers, everyone's an expert. The New York Beef Council recently named the Power Play Burger from Syracuse's Ale 'n' Angus Pub as New York's best. Our Small Town Eats segment featured top Central New York burgers, including the one at Crazy Otto's in Herkimer, which was also one of four finalists (along with Madison Bistro in Wampsville and Uncle's Tavern in New York Mills) in the Beef Council's contest.

Now, the folks at NewYorkUpstate.com have published another list of The 27 best burger restaurants in Upstate NY, ranked for 2018. Not one restaurant mentioned above made the cut. In fact, just one Central New York joint made the list.

The only CNY joint to make it: The Rise N Shine Diner in Syracuse, which came in ranked at number three.

NewYorkUpstate.com used Yelp to formulate the list it published. The methodology utilized factors including star rating, volume of reviews, and others. Do you think the list is fair? Do you believe lists like this can make or break a restaurant?
