A strong ranching industry across the state means Montana knows how to make a killer burger. But beef isn't the only meat on the menu in The Treasure State. The fourth largest state in the nation has plenty of wide open spaces and wild places, and that means game meat. More specifically, elk.
Elk burgers are leaner and higher in protein than their beefy cousins, with a clean and slightly sweet flavor that pairs well with pretty much any classic burger topping.
10Best and Sandwich America partnered to find the best elk burger in the state. To do so, 10Best editors joined forces with a local Montana food writer and The Food Channel to nominate 20 worthy restaurants across Montana. Our readers have been voting for their favorites from the pool of nominees for the past four weeks, and the results are in.
