Nothing says summer like a perfectly prepared hamburger. The Rattlesnake Club will compete in a thrilling hamburger grilling competition at the 2013 Detroit Burger Brawl on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Eastern Market.

The Rattlesnake Club Executive Chef Chris Franz and Chef Jeff Lanctot will serve their burger masterpieces to the public and a panel of judges. The event will also support one of the Rattlesnake Club's charity partners, Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan.

Burger-enthusiasts can dive into legendary burgers from all 21 restaurant chefs for a suggested donation of $10 to Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. The public can vote for their favorite burger on Facebook and win a seat at the judge's panel for the final burger showdown.
