Long Beach Burger Week comes back to the city starting August 7 through August 14. Local restaurants will be offering their best burgers starting at $5 and ranging to $20.
Burger and cocktail combos can also be purchased at Portuguese Bend Distillery for $25. Vegan options can be bought from Berlin Bistro, Hungry Angelina, and Vibes Beach Cafe. Dog-friendly menu items will be available at Berlin Bistro, Bamboo Club, The Attic, Sideburns, and Mr. Fries Man.
Breakfast burgers will be offered at Bamboo Club and The Small Cafe for those that crave a hamburger at all hours of the day. If you are looking for a bit of variety Polly’s Pies will be offering a handheld burger pie and three different types of fries with classic burger toppings will be available at Mr. Fries Man.
Mackenzie Hendrix of Vibes Beach Cafe says she recommends trying their Burger Week offering the Bayside Double Stack Burger. The burger, topped with bacon jam, a pimento cheese blend, and pickles, is only available during Burger Week. Hendrix says that Beach Vibes cafe is always excited to connect to the Long Beach community through events like Burger Week.
“This is the second year the event week has run and we had a great turnout last year! I like to say that Long Beach is the ‘biggest small town’ you’ll experience and participating in Burger week is just another way to connect with the community and other restaurants for a little friendly competition,” said Hendrix.
The restaurants participating in Burger Week are favorites around the city and offer a lot of unique burger selections. Some of the most unique burgers offered during Long Beach Burger Week include the poutine burger topped with Wisconsin cheese curds from Sideburns and the Fritos chili cheddar burger topped with texas chili, caramelized onion, cheddar cheese, and Fritos from The Crooked Duck.
More than 18 restaurants are taking part in Long Beach Burger Week and Burgers can be ordered at each participating restaurant for dine-in, take-out, or delivery. Long Beach Burger Week is a great opportunity to support local restaurants as many businesses continue to recover from the pandemic.
Organizers at Long Beach Food and Beverage hope that the event will bring in more customers for the businesses participating.
“We may be past the pandemic stage of COVID, but restaurants are still struggling and the 2nd annual city-wide Long Beach Burger Week will help increase guest counts and sales in August,” said Long Beach Food and Beverage Executive Director Terri Henry in a statement.
Long Beach Food and Beverage support the local restaurant community through events like Long Beach Burger Week and aims at reducing food insecurity in Long Beach. Participating restaurants can be found in restaurants across Long Beach.
