September BOTMs: And Then There Were Four
The BOTM Club loses a member this month as brgr:shack shuts its doors but the remaining joints come with the thunder this go round. Two September burgs get salsa-fied, we get another Hawaiian number and a Food Network show influences a fourth.
Bobby’s Burger Palace
Seems like every month BBP is tellin’ D.C. “It’s nacho burger,” but this time they really mean it. For September, the Burger Palace is hooking up the Nacho Burger topped with tomato-chipotle salsa, nacho cheese, sauce, pickled jalapeño and blue corn chips. And we continue to wait for a burg to call our own…

BGR The Burger Joint
Burgers for breakfast? Don’t mind if we do! For those days when you miss the first meal of the day, and hell, for those that you don’t, BGR’s the Triple D, will do you just fine. The September BOTM, inspired by the Guy Fieri show, comes to the plate with an over easy egg (really, the only type you should get on a burger), bacon, melted cheddar and jalapeño. Stick it in us, please. And don’t forget, through September, BGR is also hookin’ up the cream cheese, grilled jalapeño and mojo sauce topped Snooki Burger too. (We gotta feeling this ain’t the first time Snooki and three D’s have gotten together…)
Shake of the Month (not pictured): Throw an apple pie in a blender, add cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla ice cream and top the whole thing with whipped cream and you’ll get the Apple Pie SOTM from BGR.
brb be right burger
Reston’s be right burger outsourced this month’s BOTM, asking fans to come up with the latest burger. Going all grass skirt on us, they decided on the Hawaiian Burger which brings a dose of the sweet and salty with bacon, pineapple, Swiss cheese, teriyaki and ginger mayo.
Shake of the Month: Jimmy Buffet would approve of brb’s summer-ending SOTM, the Pina Colada.

Taking a trip south of the border, Dogwood hits us with the spicy Baja Chipotle burger this month. A chipotle-infused beef patty is topped with blackbean and corn relish, Jack cheese and shredded lettuce. It’s like a taco on a bun! Ok, not really, but whatever– just eat it.

(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.)
