Long Beach residents and visitors alike are in for a treat as dozens of local restaurants and food retailers will offer unique over-the-top Burgers and value-priced Burger Offers when the inaugural Long Beach Burger Week launches August 1-8, 2021.
Organized by local non-profit Long Beach Food & Beverage and thanks to a generous grant from the City of Long Beach, executive director Terri Henry, who brought the original restaurant week to Long Beach with partners in 2014, felt that in addition to encouraging local and surrounding “foodies” to enjoy what the expanding Long Beach culinary community has to offer, events like Burger Week support the local economy and put “butts in seats” of our valued restaurants. “Now that we are a registered 501c3 non-profit and have support, we decided to mix things up a little this year and put our efforts into a city-wide Long Beach Burger Week, because, hey, it’s summertime who doesn’t love a good burger?’,” Henry explained.
Featured Burgers are value-priced at $5, $10, $15 and $20. A few of the more unique over-the-top burger offers (websites and photos of burgers in links) include:
- The Risu – Shrimp Burger
- Fresh Kabobs – Kabob Burger
- The Crooked Duck – Burger Topped with Fritos and Chili
- Hungry Angelina – Vegan Patty Melt
