Reubens, Patty Melts & Mac & Cheese Highlight March’s BOTMs
There’s a pair of corned beef-topped Reuben burgers in the mix this month, a mac and cheese plus fried green tomato gut bomb, a loaded patty melt and some weak-ass – but, hey, it’s new! – stuff from the Burger Palace. Happy March BOTMs, everybody!
Burger Tap & Shake
Burger Tap and Shake breaks out the Magically Delicious burger this month but don’t expect any pink hearts, purple horseshoes or green clovers up in here. In honor of March and all its leperchaun-y goodness, BTS’s BOTM gets the Reuben treatment with the standard lineup of corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss and 1000 Island. Damn, we were really hoping for some marshmallows.

Bobby’s Burger Palace
You’re not dreaming, D.C., there is another all-new BOTM from Bobby’s Burger Palace this month! Now, once you catch your breath, check out the details of Flay’s March BOTM, the Greektown Burger. There’s feta! There’s Greek yogurt dressing! There’s tomato-cucumber relish! And…well, that’s it… Um, yeah. So, there you go.

Now this is what we’re talking about. For its latest BOTM, Social Burger ups the ante and lays down the gut bomb of the month (GBOTM), the Mac ‘n Cheese burger. Topping the beef with macaroni and cheese, natch’, there’s also a fried green tomato and garlic buffalo sauce all up in the mix. Yeah, buddy. Now, it may be March and this burger may come in like a lion, but we’re willing to bet this one won’t be going out like a lamb. Be prepared, toilets. Be very prepared…

Rather than go with its grilled cheese-bunned BOTM its busted out the past several years in March, Dogwood is changing it up for 2016. The Dogwood Patty Melt is loaded up with a half-pound of beef, American cheese, caramelized onions, bacon, sautéed mushrooms and 1000 Island, all on two slices of marble rye. We suppose that’s a suitable replacement.

BGR The Burger Joint
BGR keeps it rolling with The Reuben again this month, of course. The St. Patrick’s Day-celebrating creation piles corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss and thousand island dressing. [Burger Days Review, March 2014]
(We’re always on the lookout for BOTMs. If you know of another D.C.-area joint that hooks up a monthly special burger, email us and let us know.)
