A Fancy-Ass Juicy Lucy & Another Brat-Topped Burger Coming to Yo’ Faces in October
As Fall rolls in, so does a seasonal BOTM, a Minnesotan specialty and two burgs ready to light up your face holes.
BGR The Burger Joint
Now this is better. After two sub-par BOTMs, we’re happy to see BGR stepping up their game a bit. This month’s Oktoberfest burger features a gaggle of Germanic ingredients: muenster, sauerkraut and a mustard ale sauce on a brat-topped burger with a pretzel bun. Prost, dudes. Though they really need to stop with the “Legendary” moniker for their burg.
Burger Tap & Shake
A fancy-ass version of the Minnesotan cheese-stuffed burger favorite, Juicy Lucy, comes to Burger Tap & Shake this month in the Wet Lucette. Instead of a cheddar-stuffed burg, BTS’ Frenched-up version features Brie in the middle and gets topped with shallots and a cornichon relish. We’d mange the hell out of this one.

Bobby’s Burger Palace
BBP brings back the spicy to their BOTM with the Nacho Burger. Flay’s October creation has tomato-chipotle salsa, nacho cheese sauce, pickled jalapenos and gets “crunchified” up with blue corn chips on top.

If cheese-stuffed burgers are becoming a thing, there ain’t nothing wrong with that. Dogwood breaks out the Jalapeño-Cheddar Burger this time hooking up a fresh- jalapeño-and-cheddar-cheese-mixed beef patty with arugula (they love themselves some arugula), tomato and avocado ranch.
