$7 Burgers
March 1-9, 2024

That’s right, Owensboro! Burger Week is BACK and BIGGER than ever before! You now have NINE days to try all the beefy goodness that Owensboro has to offer.

Now here is the exciting part- one price! $7 for every burger you try! This gives you an unbelievable chance to not only get your favorite burger, but try so many more at some restaurants that traditionally don’t even serve burgers.

Owensboro is known for BBQ, but can those BBQ restaurants do burgers? What about burgers from some of our Mexican restaurants? This week is an epic showdown of burger awesomeness.

Who will have the best burger in 2024? A distinguished panel of self-proclaimed burger experts will blind taste test to determine one champion. Plus, stay tuned for a social media contest during Owensboro Burger Week. Hint, the more burgers you eat, the better chance you have at a prize!


For a successful Burger Week, please keep these things in mind:

1. Be patient, and anticipate longer wait times than normal.
2. It’s possible the restaurant might run out of food. Don’t get angry! Try another restaurant or try again another day.
3. Go somewhere new and step out of your comfort zone! A burger at some place new is the perfect way to do Burger Week.
4. Leave a tip! Restaurant employees are working around the clock to make this incredible event happen.
5. Consider ordering a side item or additional meal to further support the restaurant.
6. Don’t forget to use #owensboroburgerweek and take a fun picture of yourself enjoying the burger at the location
    you got it from. Post to Instagram/Twitter/Facebook. Visit at least three restaurants to be eligible for prizes.
7. Most importantly, BE KIND and HAVE FUN!
