Burger Week: Unique $5 burgers

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – During the week of July 6-12, twenty Lexington restaurants will be participating in Burger week, and will each feature an off-the-menu burger for $5 in a competition to decide the most unique burger of Lexington.

Patrons are warned that larger-than-normal crowds will likely be at participating restaurants, and are encouraged to support the restaurants – many of whom are offering $10-$12 products for 5 bucks – by purchasing drinks or side items, and leaving gratuities of 20% or more.

Many chefs are taking to Social Media, announcing wait times and how many burgers are left, to keep the patrons informed. Restaurants urge interested parties to follow them as the week progresses, and to share their own experiences on Twitter (@lexburgerweek), Instagram (lexingtonburgerweek) or by tagging #LexBurgerWeek.
