When it comes to grilling burgers, you’ll get the best results when following the secrets of fellow foodies. Buzz60’s Sean Dowling has more.
Two beefy made-up food holidays collide Tuesday.
May 28 is National Burger Day, aka National Hamburger Day, and the lesser-known National Brisket Day.
Offers.com surveyed 1,200 consumers to find out their favorite spot to grab a burger. Five Guys was the top pick with 28%, followed by In-N-Out and Wendy’s with 17% each, McDonald’s with 15% and 14% for Burger King.
If you’re going to celebrate by grilling up a burger at home, be careful because not cooking ground beef properly can be deadly.
We’ve rounded up the burger bargains available Tuesday unless otherwise noted at participating locations. We’re also filling your appetite for deals with ongoing sign-up offers.
