Beefin' Up National Burger Month

DSC_0172May is National Burger month and we’re “beefin” up the celebration with our 1st annual “Build Your Own Burger” contest!
What is the 5 Bridges Build Your Own Burger?
The “Build Your Own $5 Bridges Burger” was first introduced into the 5 Bridges Pub back in February of 2013. The concept behind “Build Your Own $5 Bridges Burger” was to start with a ½ pound “Certified Angus Beef” patty as the foundation of the burger for a charge of $5. Using the “build your own burger card” as their blueprint, guests were able to build their own burger using the 35+ ingredients and sides listed on the card.
The “Build Your Own $5 Bridges Burger” has been immensely popular, so much so that in January of this year, the “Build Your Own $5 Bridges Burger” card was expanded and now includes over 50 ingredients and sides.
Since its debut, the 5 Bridges Pub has served more than 9,000 build your own burgers! While the majority of those 9,000 burgers have been what one would consider your “run of the mill burger”, we have seen some pretty unique creations come out of the kitchen as well!
It Won’t Build Itself….
