Wayback Burgers

This chain is offering a Cheeesy Quarantini burger for $6.99 to $7.49 on Friday. Wayback Burgers describes the Cheeesy Quarantini as a twist on its popular Cheeeesy Burger:

“Instead of American cheese, we are adding extra ‘kick’ to this burger (and 2020) with four slices of spicy, gooey pepper jack cheese, layered between two beef patties cooked-to-order. And while we love putting the classic Cheeeesy’s grilled and buttered bun on the sandwich upside down, we are really longing for things to get back to normal, so we’re flipping that bun right side up on the ‘Cheeeesy Quarantini!’ Think of it as our rally cap — in reverse!”
