Oktoberfest, Elections, Cheese & Breakfast Rule October’s BOTMs
As the seasons change, we get our first-ever dual BOTMs, an Oktoberfest creation that pulls out all the stops, a BOTM that just might require a cleanse to unplug your insides and a burger that’s suitable eating at any hour of the day.
brb be right burger
While some joints are going topical with their BOTMs, Be Right Burger is going seasonal. And what a season it is. Doing the Germans proud, brb goes full-on Oktoberfest with a burg topped with Swiss cheese, beer-braised bratwurst, sauerkraut and horseradish mustard on one fine-ass looking toasted pretzel bun. And if that wasn’t enough Deutschland for ya, they’re serving it up with German potato salad. Prost to our bellies.
Shake of the Month: Keeping it seasonal with the SOTM too, brb hooks up the Pumpkin Spice Shake.

Bobby’s Burger Palace
A brand new BOTM from Bobby’s Burger Palace and this one pays homage to no region and instead just does it up with a shit-ton of cheese. And it looks glorious. The Four Cheese coats a BBP burger with Swiss, American, Goat and Parmesan for one melty mass of goodness. And since you’re gonna need a little roughage to get all that cheese outta your system, they throw a little baby arugula in there as well. Well played, Mr. Flay.

BGR The Burger Joint
Eschewing the season and keeping with the current events, BGR doubles up the BOTMs in October with their Obama and Romney burgs. The POTUS’ burger gets topped with a Chicago Vienna Beef hot dog, “neon” green relish and sport peppers while Mr. Romney gets a surf and turf burg topped with lobster and hollandaise. In addition, BGR will donate $1 from each burger sold to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Goes Hungry campaign.
Shake of the Month: For National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BGR does it up pink with their Strawberry shake. A portion of the each shake sold will be donated to Pink Jams Breast Cancer Foundation.
This month, Dogwood hooks up the burger that’s fitting for every meal of the day: The Breakfast Burger. Ain’t nothing wrong with that, not one bit. Bacon, cheese and an egg done up to your liking (you best keep it runny) gets mixed with the beef and comes to the plate on a sandwich-sized English muffin. Breakfast burger? More like the Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner burger– amirite???
