NORWALK, Conn. -- The burger, America's quintessential comfort food, can be dressed up (think Kobe beef, an expensive cheese, a housemade bun) or down (as in simple ketchup, maybe a pickle). Anyway you flip it, it's a winner.

You've picked five you love in Fairfield county, all of which are now vying for a spot on the DVlicious roster for best of the best.

Read on for all the juicy details. Each finalist is being profiled this week with the victorious prized patty announced at the end of the month.

Voting ends July 27; go here to chime in.

Bogey's Grille & Tap Room, 2 Wilton Ave., Norwalk, (203) 957-8686

Years in Business: Operated in Westport for 18 years until Hurricane Irene flooded the basement. Re-opened in its new Norwalk location three months ago.

Number of Burgers Offered : Two mainstays on the menu, the Angus Burger and the Prime Beef Burger, plus a build-your-own option and regular specials.

Most Popular: The Prime Beef Burger, an 8-ounce Allen Brothers USDA prime blend, with applewood smoked bacon, blue cheese, and a fried egg on top.

Secret "Sauce" Behind Burger's Flavor: "Our secret ingredient is the quality of our beef," said Co-Owner Jim Stablein. "We don't buy anything except certified Black Angus beef."

Worth Special Mention: Besides the quality of its beef, Bogey's prides itself on being a family-owned restaurant that offers a comfortable family atmosphere. Stablein said that during their years in Westport, Bogey's became a staple of its Main Street neighborhood, and since opening in Norwalk the restaurant has built a steady following. The dining room has an early American, Scottish and Irish golf club motif, and the Tap Room features vintage photographs of pub storefronts.
