How to save at burger joints this month
This month, many burger joints are offering special deals for their specialty burgers. Here are just some of the ways you can save big on burgers.
Welcome to half-spring, half summer June. The Burger of the Month specials on burger joints around the world have ingredients indicative of both seasons. For example, springtime-fresh watercress is featured on two burgers. There also are a surprising number of burgers featuring goat cheese. It’s on the Napa Valley Burger at Bobby Flay’s Bobby’s Burger Palace; on DMK Burger Bar’s It’s Greek to Me burger; on Grill ’Em All’s The Black Dahlia Murder Burg (truffled goat cheese, no less) and, of course on the Goat Tell It On the Mountain burger at Flipdaddy’s.
I think of fried green tomatoes as a summer treat, but they’re already sneaking onto menus: Stuft in Fort Collins, Colo., has a Fried Green Tomato Burger; Twisted Root Burger Co. in Texas is featuring a Southern Comfort burger with fried green tomatoes (plus barbecue bourbon glaze, mind you).
In Copenhagen, Denmark, The Bronx Burger Bar says its Burger of the Month, The Baconaise, “combines 3 of the most popular things on a burger”: Onion, bacon and… béarnaise sauce? That sounds wrong but I noticed that the BOTM at Black Betty Burger & Wine Bar is a Wagyu beef patty topped with sautéed garlic prawns and, yes, béarnaise sauce.
Black Betty’s combo of beef prawns is one of several multi-protein burgers. AtBGR: That Burger Joint, the Pulled BBQ Burger has beef topped with pulled pork;Burger 55’s special has a beef patty topped with root-beer-smoked pulled pork;Kuma’s Corner tops a 10-oz. beef burger with a veal schnitzel patty; and Slater’s 50/50’s Surf & Turf has seasoned beef and a whole-lump crab cake.
