Tipsy Fox Pub and Grill wins Best Burger in the ‘Burne’ contest

The votes are in, and Shelburne residents have selected The Tipsy Fox as the restaurant with the best burger in town. 

Ed Crewson and Len Guchardi, Chair and Town Council representative for the Shelburne Business Improvement Area (BIA), presented The Tipsy Fox with the 2024 Best Burger in the ‘Burne' plaque on May 2. 

“I was very excited to count the votes and find out that over 200 people had taken the time to come out to enjoy the gracious hospitality of our restaurant owners, and vote for their favourite hamburgers,” said Crewson. “It was great to see the numbers increase from last year and hopefully next year we'll have even more participants.”  

The Best Burger in the ‘Burne' contest was held throughout the months of March and April, with local residents submitting votes on which local restaurant had the best burger. 

The ‘Best Burger in the ‘Burne' contest was first held in 2023. Developed by the Shelburne BIA, the contest is hosted during March and April, with the intention of creating customer traffic for downtown restaurants at a time when they traditionally see slower business. 

The burger competition featured six local restaurants including Beyond the Gate, Shannon's Tap & Grill, Dufferin Public House, Main Street Café, Sunrise Diner, and Tipsy Fox. 

“There isn't a bad burger in town,” said Guchardi about each of the contestants. 

As part of the contest, the Shelburne BIA also held a draw for a $100 gift certificate to any downtown business. Local resident, Brigg Jones was drawn as the winner and chose a gift certificate to The Tipsy Fox, the restaurant he voted as having the best burger in town.
