Two dozen local restaurants will be participating in the first Owensboro Burger Week, an event set for March 2-6 and designed to showcase signature burgers from eateries throughout the city and county.

The complete list of participating restaurant are: Bar Louie, Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, Big Dipper, Brew Bridge, Briarpatch, Burger Theory, Curbside Kitchenette Food Truck, Dee’s Diner, Don Mario’s, Drake’s, The Dugout Diner, El Toribio, Famous Bistro, Gary’s Drive-In, Legends Sports Bar & Grill, Lure Seafood & Grille, Mellow Mushroom, The Miller House, Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn, Norman McDonald’s Country Drive-In, O’Bryan’s Bar and Grill, Old Hickory Bar-B-Q, Ole South BBQ, and Wonder Whip.
Burger Week is a partnership between Visit Owensboro and the City of Owensboro.
“We are so pleasantly overwhelmed by how many unique restaurants have decided to join us in the first ever Owensboro Burger Week,” said Dave Kirk, Visit Owensboro Destination Management. “It’s such an incredible way for our restaurants to unite together during this difficult time of the pandemic.”
Participating restaurants will compete for bragging rights for the ‘best burger’ by an independent group of judges. Throughout the week, the featured burgers will be randomly purchased from each participating restaurant and judges will score each experience based on numerous categories.
Everyone else also has a chance to win prizes. Customers who post a picture to Facebook or Instagram of them eating a burger at three or more participating restaurants — while also using the hashtags #owensboroburgerweek, #boroburgerweek and #locallove — will be entered into a prize drawing.
First place will receive a Mini Green Egg from Green River Appliance, and second place will receive a BBQ grilling meats package from Hillview Farms Meats.
Owensboro Burger Week is made possible thanks with support from local and state sponsors including the Kentucky Beef Council, Independence Bank, Green River Appliance and Hillview Farms Meats.
