IT’S A BURGER BASH!

One week a year — June 19-26, 2019 — it’s all about the burger!  We’re talking grass-fed, black bean, bison and everything in between — it’s the best Colorado Springs has to offer.

#COSBurgerWeek is more than a celebration, it’s also a competition. Participating restaurants will vie for Best Burger, judged by readers’ comments and hashtags on social media after trying establishments’ featured burgers. Winners receive a traveling Burger Week trophy to proudly display in their restaurant.

1. JOIN THE FUN
Help us pick the best burger in town! After trying participating restaurants’ featured burgers, your comments and use of the hashtag #COSBurgerWeek on Instagram will decide who has the best burger in Colorado Springs. You will also be entered to win a $25 gift card to one of this year’s participating restaurants each time you visit a participating restaurant and post a photo of its featured burger. (Posts or profiles must be set to public for your hashtag to be seen.) 

2. USE THE MAP
Some of our participating restaurants are dine-in only. Check our #COSBurgerWeek Map (below) to find out which locations offer takeout and their hours.  

3. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED
Sometimes, restaurants might sell out of their featured burger. First, remain calm and remember there is always tomorrow. Second, give another item on the restaurant’s menu a try. And third and most importantly, be nice to the staff… it’s not their fault #COSBurgerWeek is such a success.

4. EAT & DRINK MORE
You can’t have a burger without fries… and a drink, right? Purchasing other items besides the restaurant’s #COSBurgerWeek featured burger isn’t required, but life is about getting out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to try a few side items, cocktails or desserts!  

5. BE A GOOD TIPPER
The people working during #COSBurgerWeek are probably worn out from serving so many burgers.  Please keep that in mind and leave your servers at least a 20% tip.  It’s cool to be kind. A simple “thank you” can go a long way. (But also remember, “thank you” is not a tip.)

6. IT’S WORTH THE WAIT
Everyone is excited about the Indy’s first-ever #COSBurgerWeek, so don’t be surprised if restaurants have wait times. We would be shocked if they didn’t. Remember, if you wait, a burger will come.
