Over 32,000 votes were recorded in this year's friendly downtown competition. A record number of 37 Sioux Falls restaurants showcased their creative and tasty burgers. But who came out on top?

So what's on the award-winning The Gold Standard? A bunch of good stuff!

6 oz. Prime beef patty, jalapeno bacon, boursin cheese, peppadew jam, crispy onion straws, home-made rosemary ginger pickles, and arugula tossed with spicy vinaigrette served on ciabatta crusted with smoked mozzarella cheese served with house fried rosemary chips.

YUM!! This burger sounds amazing! Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to visit Crawford's this year. But now my fiancé and I have an excuse for another date night! Just in time for Valentine's Day.

Eating 37 burgers in one month is a big task for anyone to accomplish. Luckily, my co-worker Jeff Harkness and I teamed up this year to scout as many burgers as we could. As a team, we were able to around 20 burgers. The best part? All the burgers we sampled were unique. No two burgers were alike.

Congratulations to Crawford's on another delicious burger! And a big round of applause to all 37 Downtown Sioux Falls restaurants for another fantastic burger battle.
