Burger joints increasingly are identifying their food by brand names in order to further distinguish themselves from competitors.

Burger of the Month Specials for January 2015

Happy New Year! The January specials at burger bars across the globe are an interesting mix of predictable and whacky. That’s good. Predictable (though still appealing, course) are the riffs on January resolutions. 5 Star Burgers’ Resolution Burger has freshly ground beef, coleslaw, “frickles,” and candied-bacon jalapeňo jam.
