Holiday Inn Emerges as Burger Player

Holiday Inn Emerges as Burger Player

Several elements are notable about the burger bar called Burger Theory that opened this month in Phoenix. One is that the restaurant is not just part of a new Holiday Inn complex; the concept is owned by Holiday Inn, a unit of InterContinental Hotels Group. And perhaps because it is sited within a Holiday Inn […]

An Abundance of Intriguing Burgers

An Abundance of Intriguing Burgers

I create the “The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers” compilations by setting aside a few of the many burgers I encounter in the course of keeping BurgerBusiness.com up to date. Usually I have a dozen or so burgers from which I select eight or 10 to feature. What happened this week is that when I took […]

Burger of the Month Specials: March ’16

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: 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 […]

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 1/29

I can report to you that the state of the burger is strong, creative and fun. As evidence I point to the burgers here from burger bar and chain menus in the past week or so. January has proven to be an unexpectedly busy month for menu innovation, not just by the top chains but […]

Butter Becoming Burger Battleground

Butter Becoming Burger Battleground

Burger joints can load up burgers with wild toppings. It’s part of  burgers’ charm. But one of the hottest ingredients seems to be a staple of any restaurant kitchen: butter. Burger King is testing an Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger—with the emphasis on BUTTERY in POP displays—according to GrubGrade. This is an obvious response to what […]
