The North Okanagan loves its burgers.

The Morning Star’s latest online contest aims to uncover who has the best beef, chicken, turkey or vegetarian burger in Vernon.

And the response has been as a big as a three-patty delicacy.

“After just one week, we have more than 4,700 votes, and that, in turn, has brought in more than 9,000 viewers to our website,” said Morning Star publisher Ian Jensen.

“It’s great to see all ages participating in the contest, and the response is great for all.”

Ten restaurants are participating in the contest, and the winning restaurant and burger will get a feature story and photo in The Morning Star.

One lucky online voter will also receive a burger a month from the winning restaurant.

“This is a great opportunity to celebrate Vernon’s culinary delights,” said Jensen. “Let us know who you think is the best.”

The contest runs until Feb. 16.

You can vote up to five times a day.

To enter, go to vernonmorningstar.com and click on contests.

You can also link up to the contest through the Morning Star’s Facebook page.
