As is we needed an excuse to eat a burger, National Cheeseburger Day is September 18. Here’s some suggestions on where to celebrate.
Bite into TRACE’s Butcher Burger featuring tillamook cheddar, tomatoes, crisp lettuce, onions, and house pickles. Pair with any of their signature cocktails or take in the 2nd street views on their patio. Feeling adventurous? Add crisp bacon, house-cured pork belly, mushrooms, avocado, a niman ranch egg or a crispy crab cake to your burger anytime.

Available during dinner at the new school barbecue truck, the L&L Burger features a 44 Farms patty, American cheese, grilled onions, bread & butter pickles, and aioli. The burger is smoked then seared directly in the firebox, giving it a smokey flavor with a perfect crust.

Fixe’s burger is served with the same, amazing salt & pepper fries that accompany Fixe’s famous fried chicken sandwich, and has American cheese, pickles, onions and Fixe special sauce. The burger is available at the bar, lounge and outdoor patio and is available for $9 during happy hour.

Holy Roller’smenu is comprised of nostalgic food that’s whipped up with a bit of whimsy, and that goes for the Bombshell Burger too. The burger has shaved ham, American cheese, hashbrowns, house ketchup and a fried egg on top and goes exceptionally well with a house made float. Insider tip, pair it with “Big Red & Cake Batter” or straight up order some soft serve to dip those fries in.

Featured on the new lunch menu, Searsucker’s take on a classic burger is perfectly indulgent. The half pound double with American cheese is topped with thousand island and pickles, with an option to add bacon, egg, or avocado.

Made with 1/2 lb Beef Patty of Daily Steak Trimmings sourced from Texas ranches, this hearty burger includes aioli and sour pickles with the option to add swiss cheese, bacon or N’duja and even an egg. Plus, it’s served with Beef Fat French Fries to help eat away any pre-shopping hanger or enjoy after purchasing any of the butcher shop’s prime cuts.
