Burger enthusiasts in Louth don’t have to stray too far from home to get their hands on an award-winning burger as Mullen’s ‘take away’ a top prize in the much-loved national competition this week!
Mullens of Castletown Road in Dundalk were named the the Best Independent Takeaway Award in Leinster.
The announcement came on the fifth annual National Burger Day, which took place on Thursday 23rd June, which, in support of the Simon Community encouraged foodie lovers to get out and have their say by voting for the nation’s favourite burger, while giving back to a great cause and celebrating Ireland’s amazing foodservice at the same time.
Over the last number of weeks, hundreds of Irish food businesses of all categories and sizes took part in the search for Ireland’s best burger, from popular fast-food joints to family owned-pubs, hotels, and speciality burger restaurants at the heart of Irish communities.
