A Tacoma boy’s original hamburger creation has been selected from a field of more than 16,000 entries and will be featured in a kid’s cookbook that will be sold at Red Robin restaurants next summer to benefit the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Through its "The Next Gourmet Burger Kids Contest," Red Robin asked kids, age 10 and under, to submit an original gourmet burger creation and a 100-word statement on why their burger deserves to be America’s next gourmet burger. Seven-year-old Adam Sorg’s "The Buckaroo Burger" was among the 50 finalists. It’s a buffalo burger smothered in barbecue sauce and topped with red peppers and lettuce.

"At Red Robin we take great pride in creating the highest quality gourmet burgers, and we are excited to see how our younger guests used their creativity to make such a unique culinary creation," said Randy Ruiz, manager of the Tacoma Red Robin.
