National Burger Day is the Christmas of ground beef, so it merits celebration. On May 28, LeaderBar Drafthouse & Eatery will salute the day by offering their signature Leader burgers for just $1 with the purchase of any craft beer. Normally $9.95, the Avondale staple calls the promo their way of honoring America's love affair with charred beef. One thing's for sure, $1 burgers are infinitely greater than stale cookies by the fireplace. Sorry, Santa.
The Leader burger is the house favorite, a nod to Americana flavors made with Merkts cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and house sauce. It's straightforward and simple, precisely what you want dripping down your face on National Burger Day. LeaderBar is also the perfect spot to wash down your burgers. The bar features Midwestern craft beers on draft and in bottles, featuring the likes of Three Floyds, Goose Island, and Revolution Brewing Company.
Burgers: check. Beer: check. Unbridled sense of American pride: check.
