There are few foods more quintessentially American than the hamburger.
With mouthwatering burger variations that run the gamut — from the classic fast-casual beef patty to a black bean veggie burger to a beef burger covered in mac and cheese or even a ramen burger — it’s no wonder that Americans eat a whopping 9 billion hamburgers a year.
And considering the appetite we have for the iconic food, it’s no wonder that someone came up with National Hamburger Day (May 28) which you can celebrate with sizzling hamburger deals served up by these restaurants:
- Burger 21: The popular fast-casual burger chain is giving away free cheeseburgers to people who download its “B Loyal” mobile app, available from Google Play and the Apple app store. If you get Burger 21’s app before May 27, you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win its Cheesy Burgers free for a year. Burger 21 plans to pick a winner on May 28.
- McDonald’s: You can score two Big Mac burgers for just $5 at Mickey D’s. The burger chain just launched its “McPick 2 for $5″ promotion, which includes the Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish and 10-piece Chicken McNuggets.
