Burger of the Month Specials: Feb. 2016

Burger of the Month Specials: Feb. 2016

Happily, this wasn’t what I expected. With Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day crowded into February, I expected lots of Creole, Cupid and Honest Abe Burgers of the Month specials. And there are a few clever holiday-themed burgers in the list. Bobby Flay has a Louisiana Burger at his Bobby’s Burger Palace chain and […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Jan. 2016

Burger of the Month Specials: Jan. 2016

The holidays are over, and I’m happy. That’s not because I dislike the year-end festivities but because the Burger of the Month specials can be so relentlessly holiday-themed that they don’t feel fresh or exciting. Ah, but now comes January and the BOTM specials once again have names like The MOOberry, The Lotsa Lobsta Blucy, […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Dec. 2015

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

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 […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Sept. 2015

Burger of the Month Specials: Sept. 2015

Not surprisingly, a few burger bars use back-to-school themes for their September Burger of the Month specials. But what should we make of two joints doing Zeus burgers? Did Greek gods have birthday months? The Wayback Burgers chain is offering a “Back to School Meatloaf Burger” (meatloaf seasoning, jalapeňo ketchup, peppered bacon, tomato, lettuce and […]

Burger of the Month Specials for August 2015

Burger of the Month Specials for August 2015

Burger restaurants don’t always get sufficient credit for the good works most of them do. They’re constantly asked for food donations or for help raising funds for charities and individuals in need and they almost always oblige. I was reminded of that looking over the Burger of the Month Specials on burger bar menus for […]

Burger of the Month Specials for July 2015

Burger of the Month Specials for July 2015

Burger joints increasingly are identifying their food by brand names in order to further distinguish themselves from competitors. For example, many restaurants serve Angus beef, but 5 Napkin Burger wants its customers to know that its Burger of the Month special for July, the Stay Local, is “Angus beef from Greenane Farms in Meredith, N.Y.” […]
