Stacks Burgers, Shakes & Fries capped off its Stacks Burger Architect Competition on Saturday as ex-Seahawk quarterback Jon Kitna met the five winners.

Kitna also introduced his own custom Stacks burger, which will sit permanently on the Stacks menu alongside the winners’ creations.

Kitna - a math teacher and head football coach at Lincoln High School, who was recently signed to the Dallas Cowboys to back up for one game after a 16-year career in the NFL that he ended two years ago - surprised the five contest winners on Saturday.

“We wanted to mix it up and give our guests a chance to help us build our menu,” said Stacks owner Sebastian Brost. “Some guests want to order an already-built burger, or in our case a custom Stacks burger, so we’ve added five custom Stacks burgers to our menu as a result of the contest for our customers to order. We are elated Jon Kitna [added] his custom Stacks burger to the menu. What is Jon’s favorite? You’ll have to stop in to see.”

Stacks ran the contest from Oct. 21 through Nov. 20 and received many creative entries. Through much deliberation, the entries were narrowed down to 14. From there, the burger receiving the most votes via online voting over a two-week period was declared the grand prize winner.

The winning burger was the Bill’da Burger, featuring a pepper jack double cheeseburger on a whole wheat bun with

A-1 sauce, grilled onions, jalapeños and a “whole lot of bacon” (a double order of bacon) for $6.49.

Stacks Burgers, Shakes & Fries, located at 1706 S. 320th St., is independently owned and operated, and opened in October.
