One day after the Iowa Beef Council named the best hamburger in the state, the Nebraska Beef Council announced its decision Friday, choosing the Peppermill and E.K. Valentine Lounge in Valentine as serving the Cornhusker State's best burger.

The Peppermill’s Joseph Angus Burger received enough nominations to reach the top five and was ultimately awarded the best burger by a panel of judges who conducted an anonymous taste test. The Joseph Angus Burger is a 10-ounce beef hamburger with jalapeno bacon, cob-smoked ham, barbeque sauce, house ranch dressing, Swiss and cheddar cheeses and is topped with two crispy homemade onion rings.

Runner-up was Dinker’s Bar in Omaha followed by Greta’s Gourmet in Lincoln, Tommy Colina’s Kitchen in Omaha and the Union Bar in Gering.

The closest runner-up is about two hours east of Omaha at Elm's Club in Creston.
