January’s Burgers Highlighted by BOTY Winner. And Fritos.
New Year. New burgers. This month we get a BOTY winner, a North Jersey burg, a burger that’ll warm your belly (and your ass), and yes, another middle-finger from the Food Network guy.
BGR The Burger Joint
Just a few weeks after earning Burger Days’ BOTY honors, BGR brings back the Chili Mac to kick 2013 off right. Fritos, chili and cheese –yeah, Frito pie– on a burger is one of the greatest things ever you can throw into your face, so go ahead and do it more than once while you have the chance.
Shake of the Month: Possibly the last time you’ll ever taste that sweet combo of cake and cream filling, BGR gives Hostess a proper send-off with the Twinkie shake.

You can never go wrong with meat-on-meat. Never. And throw in some cheese? Fuggedaboutit. BRB pays homage to the North Jersey scene this month with The Soprano— an Italian-seasoned beef patty topped with marinara, provolone, parmesan , pepperoni and served on a rosemary focaccia bun. This thing could only get more authentic if the pepperoni was sourced from Satriale’s.

Shake of the Month: Custard, peanut butter and Nutter Butter cookies give us a damn tasty-sounding Nutter Butter SOTM.
With a new year, we get the same short-end of the stick from the Burger Palace. We get the feeling Mr. Flay may be running out of ideas as this month’s BOTM, the Canadian, is the same thing (white cheddar, Canadian bacon, maple mustard sauce) he trotted out last January. Or maybe he’s just lazy, eh?

Who cares if it’s unseasonable warm this month? Dogwood keeps the heat coming with spice-packed Winter Warmer BOTM crammed with jalapeno, chipotle mayo and pepper jack cheese. If it doesn’t fire you up going in, there’s a good chance it’ll get you on the flip side.

(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.)
