BILLINGS — For the second year in a row, a Billings restaurant had the opportunity to represent Montana on the national stage.
This past weekend The Burger Dive took part in Flavored Nation where chefs create dishes that represent their state.

This year the event took place in Columbus Ohio, where Burger Dive owner Brad Halsten and his son prepared "Huckleberry Bison Meatballs."

The Burger Dive will return to the World Food Championships again in October as well in hopes of taking home the World's Best Burger title for the third time.

“It was cool because it wasn't a competition this time,” Halsten said. “We love competing but this was kind of a different experience. Fifty chefs there, all from different states, just kind of bringing something that represented where they came from. It was fun to get to know everybody and fun to try the different dishes from around the country and just to see what differnt states had to represent where they're from. We enjoyed it.”

If you would like to give the Huckleberry Bison Meatballs a try, the Burger Dive will offer them as a special on Thursday.
