Houston rapper Bun B and his Trill Burgers won Good Morning America’s “United States of Burgers” competition Friday. The cooking contest was held in Times Square in New York, where the Trill team faced off against burger joints in Atlanta, Miami and Philadelphia.

Representatives of the four cities headed to the finals after heated semi-finals aired live on GMA earlier this week. On Tuesday, the crew came to Houston to watch two local ventures vie to be in the Final Four at Saint Arnold Brewing’s expansive beer garden.

Trill Burgers brought forward the OG Trill Burger, made with 44 Farms beef, secret Trill sauce and pickles on a Martin’s potato roll. Diane and Willet Feng presented a creation from Burger-chan, their Asian-influenced burger concept that recently moved from Greenway Plaza to the Galleria area, with sambal sauce and an umami glaze. In an Instagram post after the fact, Willet said it “can be polarizing. It is A LOT of flavor. I love the combination, but maybe the judges did not.”
