The roundup of burger joints’ monthly specials will continue to run in its box on the right sidebar, but I’m giving them full post attention occasionally, too, because there’s always so much culinary creativity that it would be a shame to miss this feature. If you overslept because of Daylight Savings and didn’t update your menu in time for inclusion or if I just missed your special, let me know in a comment below. There’s always next month.
Not surprisingly, Thanksgiving-theme turkey burgers are popular for November (check out Stack’d Burger Bar’s). But not everyone has gone holiday. Don’t miss Blue Moon Burgers’ Spicy Chicken & Waffles, Prime Burger’s Spicy Barnyard Burger or Thunder Burger & Bar’s Bond Burger.
