Sports Center burgers ranked high among readers surveyed.

Last week, a crack team of Augusta Chronicle staff members rolled up sleeves, stacked some napkins and set off in search of Augusta's best burger. According to our system, the Delta Sandwich Shoppe on Central Avenue was the winner, but we were curious about what the community thought. We put out a call for nominations, and here are the votes we received:

The Sports Center 16

Gary's Hamburgers 7

SNO-CAP Drive-In 7

Delta Sandwich Shoppe 6

Break 4 Lunch 5

Mr. Ed's Paradise Cafe 4

Without a doubt Delta

Without a doubt Delta Sandwich Shoppe has the best burger. The problem is most of the community doesn't know where it is located.
