The man who famously put down his Big Mac to help rescue three women held captive for a decade in an Ohio house will never have to pay for another burger in his hometown.
Charles Ramsey has been promised free burgers for life at more than a dozen Cleveland-area restaurants.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that the restaurant where Mr. Ramsey worked as a dishwasher initially created a special burger in his honor, but eateries in the city decided a larger tribute was due.
A single-edition "Chuck Card," good for life, is being stamped in Ramsey's honor. Anytime that Ramsey takes the card into one of the participating restaurants, he'll get a free burger.
"I'm sure some places will give him more – maybe add fries and a soft drink – but that will be up to them," said Scott Kuhn of Driftwood Restaurant Group.
The newspaper says Ramsey was traveling and would get his "Chuck Card" when he returns.
