The Burger Commandments
You Burger Believe It!
1. You Shall Have No Other Meat Than Beef.
Sorry, but the participating restaurants will not be able to make substitutions for the patty. You can take any toppings off the burger, but you may not have a chicken or turkey burger instead of a beef burger without paying extra.
2. You Shall Not Lose Patience While Waiting For Your Meal.
Don’t be surprised if the restaurants have waits. People have been talking about CLT Burger Week for weeks so only be surprised if there are no waits!
3. You Shall Accept That They Might Run Out.
CLT Burger Week will be the juiciest week in burger history. So, it is understandable if a place runs out of their #CLTBurgerWeek burger toward the end of a shift. Don’t get angry, deal with it! Go back earlier the next day, order your burger and thank them. Be kind to our enthusiastic burger creators, they are doing this for you!
4. You Shall Not Neglect to Buy Drinks and Other Foods.
You really should buy a Bud Light or a Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey cocktail or shot to go with your burger and maybe some sides to help out the restaurants that are going above and beyond to bring you a delicious and unique burger for a very affordable price.
5. You Shall Not Leave Less Than 20% to Your Server.
Keep in mind you are paying a much lower price for your burger than you normally would. Your server is amazing, be generous when leaving gratuity and a scrumptious attitude. A kind word will also be welcome — these people are our friends and neighbors.
6. You Shall Dine-In Only.
Just a final note that restaurants will not offer their $7 burgers to-go. A big incentive for them to participate is knowing they’re bringing new customers in and also getting orders for sides, drinks, and beers which helps offset the operating costs.
7. You Shall Remember Your Burger Passport.
