First grilled cheese, then tacos, now burgers.
The York City Independent Restaurant Association – which also organizes Restaurant Week York – is celebrating national food holidays throughout the year.
Next up is National Burger Month, which participating downtown York restaurants will celebrate with York City Burger Week May 22-28.
During that time-frame, customers can enjoy off-menu burgers, Burger Week-only exclusives and burger specials, ranging from traditional to – well – unusual.
If you've ever wanted to try a burger stuffed with crushed Doritos or served on a glazed doughnut bun, now's your chance.
