2015’s 1st BOTM Crop: A Canadian & a Cuban Walk Into a Burger Bar
The first Burger of the Month crop of 2015 brings us a north of the border burg, a south Florida creation, a wing-style burger and one that’s designed to stave off that inevitable January hangover. Check out all of January’s BOTMs below.
BGR The Burger Joint
Starting off the year with their wing-burger mashup, BGR’s January BOTM is the Buffalo Bacon Bleu combining a beef patty dipped in Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, blue cheese dressing, a couple of celery sticks and some bacon. (Burger Days Review, Dec 2013)
Burger Tap & Shake
If you’re like us, you treat January as one big holiday recovery month, so BTS’s Tijuana Hangover sounds like the perfect meal. A chorizo pork patty topped with pepperjack, roasted chiles, XXX sauce and a fried egg should do wonders for the perpetually hungover Burger Days Crew.

Bobby’s Burger Palace
Salty and sweet is the name of the game at the Burger Palace in January when BBP goes north of the border with the Canadian Burger. White cheddar, maple mustard sauce and bacon –well, Canadian bacon– are tossed together in this Great White North-inspired creation. (Burger Days Review, February 2014)

As Flay goes north, the folks at Dogwood go south. This month’s burger from the Falls Church sports bar is The Cubano which puts shaved ham, pulled pork, Swiss and spicy brown mustard on ciabatta. They also toss on lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles but, because we like to keep it real, we suggest keeping the pickles and ditching the other produce.
