About Us

The legend says “From the ashes, the phoenix will rise again!” 

The 3rd Annual Atlanta Burger Wars event has grown! We now have TWO competitions, FOUR categories, and a new name, Atlanta Food Wars! Our first competition, Burgers and Bacon – Atlanta Grillmaster Classic, pits some of the states greatest grill masters against one another. Held on July 28th in McDonough, GA, teams are competing for a chance at four golden tickets to compete in to the World Food Championships. We will award Judge’s Choice (Burgers, Bacon) and People’s Choice (Burgers, Bacon) in both categories. Professional judges anoint the Judge’s Choice in both competitions, but “We The People” will decide People’s Choice. So, bring out the whole family and enjoy a fun-packed day eating!

Our second competition, Eats and Sweets – Speedway Under the Stars, is a date night made in heaven! Join us August 17th at Atlanta Motor Speedway as competitors bring out their best sandwich and/or best dessert for you to sample. Then, enjoy a pace car ride around the track and listen to some tunes from the Restart Bar. We will award Judge’s Choice (Sandwich, Dessert) and People’s Choice (Sandwich, Dessert) in both categories. Professional judges will award the checkered flag to our Judge’s Choice winners, but you’ll have a chance to nudge your favorite across the finish line with a People’s Choice vote. So, make your date, and don’t be late Eats and Sweets!

Both events being hosted in honor of Speedway Children’s Charities.
