A New Year, A New Batch of BOTMs to Help Break Our Resolutions
It’s already five days into 2016, which means our resolutions are already in the shitter. Oh well, there’s always next year. So with all that nonsense behind us, we’re ready to go meat-in-face with each and every one of the January’s BOTMs below. Happy New Year, everyone.
Bobby’s Burger Palace
It’s January which means Bobby’s Burger Palace has hit rewind on its BOTM list and is back at the beginning. Just like last year at this time, the north-of-the-border Canadian Burger is up with a sweet-and-salty mashup of white cheddar cheese, maple mustard sauce and Canadian bacon. We’re still feeling some holiday spirit, so we’ll let the repeat slide. This time. [Burger Days Review, February 2014]

Burger Tap & Shake
BTS has made a few fancy versions of the cheese-stuffed Juicy Lucy over the years and they’re back at it again to kick off 2016. The January BOTM, the Juicy Blucy stuffs the beef with blue cheese and tops it with bacon, pear and walnut chutney and port wine aioli. Talk about swanky– better eat this one with your pinky out.

Dogwood’s January BOTM hooks up the combo of all combos: meat on meat. The Falls Church sports bar’s Reuben Burger tops a beef batty with the sandwich’s requisite toppings – corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss, thousand island – and serves it up on marble rye. You’ve got to break your resolution some time– it might as well involve a bunch of meat.

Breakfast burgers can be exciting and breakfast burgers can be not so exciting. The standard bacon, egg and cheese combo, while tasty, isn’t all that thrilling so busting out a limited-time burger with that makeup is weak. Fortunately, Social Burger gets it. The Vienna joint’s January BOTM is the Chorizo Breakfast Burger which mixes things up with a spicy chorizo patty topped with a fried egg, hash browns and pickled red onions. We’d like to see some kinda sauce in there, but hey, we’ll take what we can get.
