Macon Burger Week 2020 is rounding up beef lovers across the community for the third year in a row—albeit a little later than usual. Typically, the event is held in September, but this year it is scheduled for November 2-8.
The Delicious Details
Things will be a little different this year in response to COVID-19, including the fact that restaurants will be offering their never-before-seen burger creations to-go to help with crowd control. Any restaurant interested in beefing up their sales in just one week by participating in Macon Burger Week 2020, still has time to submit a commitment form before this Friday, Oct. 2.
Guidelines for participating restaurants are: the patty must be beef; it must be sold for $7 and not be a part of the usual menu; add-ons encouraged; and a $1 upcharge for take-out is included this year. If you’re on the fence about participating, maybe hearing that many restaurants experienced their highest sales during this week last year will sway your decision.
Show off Your Beefy Skills
Not only are you attracting new customers with an original beef masterpiece, it gives you the chance to show off your creative culinary skills. Last year’s defending champs, Ocmulgee Brewpub—sold almost 3,400 of their original “Eat a Peach” burger, which is a fine example of what hungry hamburger lovers can expect. That burger features a house ground beef patty topped with peach pico de gallo, smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese, and a basil aioli. Due to popular demand, it is now a part of the regular menu!

Things to be prepared for if you want to chow down during Macon Burger Week 2020 range from being prepared to wait; don’t be rude (or surprised) if a restaurant runs out; order more than just a burger; be kind and tip well (after all, you are getting a delicious, juicy hamburger for only $7!); and most importantly, be that person on social media posting food pics!
