May is National Burger Month, otherwise known as a time to get your hands on a 99-cent burger. And no, we're not talking about fast food.
Cassell's Hamburgers in Koreatown plans on selling its classic burgers for 99 cents. You know, the ones Christian Page makes with Colorado-raised chuck and brisket ground daily and double-broiled? Starting at 11 a.m. Friday, those burgers are 99 cents, until they run out.
The burger joint is also introducing a week-long happy hour for May, available Monday to Sunday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. During those three hours, you can get a sandwich, or burger, with a can of Olympia or Pabst Blue Ribbon beer for $9. If you need another beer, they are all priced at $1, and cocktails are $6.
There's also a couple of gastropubs in the South Bay flipping 99-cent burgers every Tuesday. Yes: every Tuesday, all year long, The Rockefeller gastropubs (with a location in Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach), sell a special burger for 99 cents.
This month's burger is made with a 4-ounce beef patty topped with thousand island dressing, provolone and fontina cheeses, and red bell peppers, pasilla peppers and red onions sauteed with garlic and soy sauce.
Talk about goin' up, on a Tuesday.
