COVID message from the Nelson Star: Due to Covid and restricted seating some restaurants are encouraging take-out, but it is not mandatory and some restaurants would prefer the customer to come and dine in. Please contact the restaurant if you have more questions.

Behind The Scenes

How do restaurants come up with their unique burger? The time leading up to November involves a lot of arduous burger testing and sampling by each restaurant's chef and staff, until the perfect combination of patty, condiments and bun are created. The creations are solely within the control of each restaurant.

Given the popularity of the event, by the end of the month some restaurants may have served over 1000 of their speciality burgers.

Chefs tell us that both locals and visitors often arrive in groups, order one or two burgers, share them, and then head off to more restaurants to partake in this burger bliss.

No matter which way you slice it, you’ll have a delicious dining experience during Nelson Burger Month.
