July’s BOTMs Hook Up a Cuban, an Italian, a Hawaiian & a New Yorker
This month’s gaggle of BOTMs is an international bunch including a Cubano-inspired burg, an Italian job, a joint from the Aloha State and one representing the lower 48.
BGR The Burger Joint
Capitalizing on the in-season crop, BGR goes tomato-centric with the Caprese burger. With a beefsteak tomato on top, the burger also gets cozy with the mozzarella, basil and some aged balsamic.
Shake of the Month: Orange Creamsicle? Orange Creamsicle.
Burger Tap & Shake
Keeping it going with the non-beef –but still four-legged animal– burgers, BTS hooks up the Calle Ocho. Calling it their take on the Cubano sandwich, the BOTM features a chorizo pork sausage patty topped with sliced ham, Swiss, dill pickles and dijonnaise. Castro ain’t got shit on this one.

Bobby’s Burger Palace
Who needs a D.C. burger when we can eat one named after a street in New York City? This time, ol’ Bobby Flay rolls out the Mulberry Street Burger with mozzarella, parmesan, basil ketchup and baby arugula. Whoop-dee-fucking-doo.

Hawaiian-style ain’t just for pizza. After a tango south of the border last month, Dogwood opts for a taste of Polynesia this time with the Hawaiian burger topped with pineapple, shaved ham and a sweet, pineapple BBQ sauce.
