    • July 10, 2024

    Long Beach will be the place to be for burger lovers this month as more than a dozen restaurants take part in the fourth annual Long Beach Burger Week.

    “We are looking to bring burger lovers to Long Beach restaurants to enjoy either over-the-top burgers that are made specially for burger week, or to get special deals on burgers,” said Terri Henry, organizer of the event, which will take place from July 21-28 at several restaurants across the city.

    Just like the popular restaurant weeks that take place in various cities, Long Beach’s Burger Week means eateries will offer special deals on burgers on their menu, as well as combo meals, or even create new burgers specifically for the week.

    Burgers range from hefty meaty offerings to vegan to classic burgers at $5, $10, $15, $20 or $25 price points. While the specific menus are still being ironed out, Henry said the more expensive burgers usually include pairings like a beer or sides.

    There’s going to be a lot of burgers to eat, so for burger lovers who want to try something a bit different, here are five of the more unusual and original burgers to try during Long Beach Burger Week.
