The results are in, and of the original 32 burger spots contending for the top rank, 16 have now been eliminated. Thousands of you voted in our polls. Who lost and who survived?

Some favorites have been eliminated from the bracket. Owen & Engine got creamed 68 to 32 percent by Au Cheval, Acadia was knocked out by Small Cheval 70 to 30 percent (are we noticing a trend?) and Bad Apple got beat by Little Bad Wolf 55 to 45 percent. In a somewhat surprising upset, Chicago icon Billy Goat Tavern got beaten by newcomer Old Irving Brewing. In a more upscale matchup, Gather beat out Dusek's 55 to 45 percent. You can see the rest of the results in the bracket below.

We're now down to 8 contests and 16 contenders. Can anyone beat Au Cheval? The polls will remain open until Monday, July 24 at 10 p.m. Get voting!
