Burger of the Month Specials: Dec. 2016

Burger of the Month Specials: Dec. 2016

Last month, I was ready for Thanksgiving-themed burgers, although there were many more than I expected. But for December, I anticipated a return to wildly non-thematic burger specials because we don’t do “Christmas burgers,” do we? Oh, we do. Proving that after seven years of BurgerBusiness.com I still have much to learn and still can […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Nov. 2016

Burger of the Month Specials: Nov. 2016

November’s burger specials go something like this: a turkey patty with cranberry sauce/aïoli/compote, stuffing, sweet potato fries and Brie cheese on a brioche bun. Nothing wrong with that burger, of course, but, gosh, there 30—thirty—burgers that are variations on that build on the list this month. Wow. And most seem to be called The Thanksgiving […]

Burger of the Month Specials: May 2016

Welcome to National Burger Month. The world’s burger bars are certainly in a celebratory mood, as evidenced by the May Burger of the Month Specials on menus. As always, some amazing creativity is at play. I mean, who puts grilled bamboo on a burger? Burger Theory, the inventive burger truck that works the streets of […]

Burger of the Month Specials: April ’16

Burger of the Month Specials: April ’16

I’m not certain March went out like a lion (does the Angriest Whopper count?), but April definitely has come in like a lamb (burger). They’re everywhere on this month’s list of 60+ specials, and they look great. Instead of bowing to tradition and going Greek, the Burger Lounge chain is topping its grass-fed lamb patty […]

Burger of the Month Specials: March ’16

Welcome to March Madness, also known as the Parade of the Paddy Melts. Yes, March always brings a good supply of corned-beef-Swiss-sauerkraut burgers as Burger of the Month specials. It’s an ideal way to stretch celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, this year on March 17. Drake’s in Franklin, Tenn., is instead serving “leprechaun-sized” mini burgers […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Dec. 2015

For December’s Burger of the Month specials I expected to see some Christmas-themed burgers, especially given the unprecedented number of Halloween- and Thanksgiving-themed specials in the past two months. But I didn’t anticipate that so many operators would be willing to turn poor Rudolph into a burger! The Nook, in St. Paul, Minn., doesn’t mince […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Nov. 2015

Winners, winners, turkey dinners. It’s November so seeing a few burger bars offer gussied up turkey burgers as their specials is to be expected. But this year, turkey burgers are everywhere: 22 of the 56 November Burger of the Month specials listed here are variations on the Thanksgiving-on-a-bun idea. And by everywhere I mean Europe […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Oct. 2015

Burger of the Month Specials: Oct. 2015

Let’s all agree that you can do an Octoberfest burger as the October Burger of the Month special, but only if you add your own twist to it. Otherwise, why bother? And nearly all the Octoberfest specials here have some creative touches. For example, Milwaukee Burger Co. in Eau Claire, Wis., starts with a bratwurst […]
