BGR The Burger Joint rolls out presidential burgers

BGR The Burger Joint is reviving its Presidential Burger Contest with burgers inspired by President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

The burgers, available in BGR locations nationwide beginning Sept. 25, are odes to the candidates' hometowns, according to a press release from BGR. The Obama Burger is topped with a Chicago "Vienna Beef" hot dog with neon green relish and sport peppers. The Romney Burger is topped with lobster and hollandaise sauce.  

BGR will provide updates on how many votes each burger gets, and the final results of the voting will be released on Election Day. BGR ran the Presidential Burger Contest four years ago with burgers inspired by Obama and Arizona Senator John McCain.

BGR, a Bethesda-based company, will donate $1 from the sale of each burger to benefit Share Our Strength's No Kid Goes Hungry campaign.

Founded in Washington, D.C., by Mark Bucher, BGR is known for creating over-the-top gourmet burgers, such as its famous 9 Pounder burger, as well as sandwiches inspired by newsworthy figures like Snooki, Sarah Palin and Rod Blagojevich. There are three BGR The Burger Joint locations in Maryland, including one at Columbia Crossing Circle.
