Benny Burger From Ben's Fresh in Port Jervis, New York Among State's Best

The burger from Ben's Fresh in the running to be named the best in New York State is called the "Benny Burger." The eatery's website claims Ben's Fresh makes the "Best Burgers in Town."

Last year the Benny Burger made the Top Four. The Benny Burger ended up finishing third. The burger did win the People's Choice Award thanks to an online vote.

The Benny Burger is a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and a special "Benny sauce" served on a pickle bun. The burger is made with 100 percent fresh beef, custom ground, and cooked to order.

Recently, Hudson Valley readers said Ben's Fresh in Port Jervis makes the best burger in the region.
