CITY Newspaper presents ‘Rochester Burger Week’.
During our second annual burger celebration, held July 19-26 – we’ll give big love to beef, bison, black bean, and everything in between – in every part of town from the Finger Lakes to Brockport.

A portion of the proceeds from each burger sold during Burger Week will be donated by the restaurants to Foodlink.
Help us raise as much money possible to contribute to this organization committed to feeding under served communities.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram and like us on Facebook!

The 5 Burger Commandments

THEY MIGHT RUN OUT

You can guarantee #ROCBURGERWEEK will be even meatier than last year’s inaugural event! With this in mind, you may run into the situation of the participating restaurant you visit running out of their #ROCBURGERWEEK burger toward the end of a shift. DON’T GET HANGRY!! If a place runs out of their #ROCBURGERWEEK burger, shake it off: go back the next day, this time earlier, order your burger, and thank them for working their asses off to do this for you. Do Not Be A Jerk To Our Restaurants. We’re in this together, beefeaters.

THERE WILL BE WAITS

People have been talking about #ROCBURGERWEEK for months. Don’t be surprised if restaurants have waits. If they do, buy a beer and relax, share a post on social media using #ROCBURGERWEEK and maybe you’ll win some prizes. If you’re REALLY in a hurry, you can always call ahead or make a reservation when that option is available.

YOU WILL TIP

Burger deals brings out the cheap in all of us, but really, you’re getting a gourmet burger, so kindly tip at least 20%. The people who are serving you are working harder during #ROCBURGERWEEK than at any other point in the year. A kind word will also be welcome—these people are our friends and neighbors, so please do not give them any gristle.

PICK UP SOME FRIES AND A BREW

While extra purchases are not a requirement, we think it says something good about you if you show a little love to a restaurant going above and beyond to bring you an awesome burger. Pick up some fries and a pint of brew, or a shot of something stronger! You’ll enjoy yourself more. Plus- this is a celebration of the Burger, so act accordingly!
