“As restaurants continue to face one of the most challenging times in recent history, Dayton Burger Week will once again provide a much-needed lift this summer,” Tony Frank, Dayton Burger Week organizer, said in a release. “In addition to generating business for the participating restaurants, Burger Week gives consumers an event to look forward to and a sense of normalcy that allows them to safely support and try new restaurants in their community.”

Participating area restaurants will be announced at daytonburgerweek.com as the event get closer.

“From gourmet blends to off-menu specialties and even beer pairings, this is a week dedicated to America’s sweetheart, the hamburger,” organizers said on the Burger Week website.

Traditionally, Burger Week is intended for dine-in customers, but with statewide COVID-19 restrictions, organizers said to expect many participating restaurants to offer take-out.

“Each restaurateur and chef will prepare their unique take on the burger,” the website stated. “The idea is to get people to embrace the food, culture and Dayton-love while getting them out to eat, drink, and try new places.”
