March Madness Brings Out a New Flock of BOTMs
Basketball burgers are here, bustin’ up bellies this month as a new flock of BOTMs hits the scene. In March, we see the return of a grilled cheese behemoth, a Sriracha-drizzled Korean creation, a Kentucky classic and, finally, just about the plainest Burger Of The Month you’ll ever see.
It’s March, which means the return of Dogwood’s splice-tastic March Madness burger: a grilled-cheese-and-burger hybrid sandwiching the beef between a pair of grilled cheeses. With your choice of bread and cheese, that’s a whole lotta ways to get your Fatty Melt on. (Burger Days Review, March 2014)

BGR The Burger Joint
After two months of the Buffalo-Bacon-Bleu, the burger calendar has finally flipped at BGR. This month, the Korean BBQ comes to the scene with kimchi, cilantro and Sriracha on the beef and Korean BBQ underneath. (Burger Days Review, April 2014)
Burger Tap & Shake
Another NCAA-related BOTM comes from BTS in the form of the “March Madness” Kentucky Hot Brown. The Louisville-inspired burger tops a beef burger with sliced turkey, bacon, Swiss, an oven-cured tomato and Mornay sauce.

Bobby’s Burger Palace
Aaaaannnd then there’s this one again. Look, we get it. It’s sweet that Flay has a burger inspired by wife but could this thing be any more unspectacular? Stephanie’s All American is an American cheeseburger with yellow mustard, pickled jalapenos and shredded lettuce. Bah. (Burger Days Review, June 2013)
