This year's lineup of Burger tributes and dreams actualized will raise the bar in a big way and features 6 Brand New creations and tributes plus an old favorite from Burger Week’s past that was voted in by our fans. Chef Andre Guerrero with the help of the entire Oinkster team, dreamed big this year to compile a list of popular burgers that needed an infusion of bigger and better ingredients and burgers that existed only in the dream realm, in need of being materialized into reality.
Last year 235 BURGERLORDS rose to the "Burger Challenge" and attended all 7 days of Burger Week. How much stronger can the BURGERLORD army grow this year!? This year’s Burger Week Burger Challenge champions will be crowned with a brand new original BURGERLORDS shirt exclusively available to them.
Like many of our past Burger Week creations this baby was calling out to be rescued from the uncaring clutches of a multinational crap shack. We couldn't sit idly by and watch a national treasure disgraced on such a large stage, so we decided to take action and put some love back in to this treat from the City of Brotherly Love.

Tuesday June 3rd - HotBurg on a Stick
Shine some light on that mall food court fast food, delicacies known nationwide to pimply teens on awkward group dates, Moms and Dads taking breaks from shopping for brats, and the indecisive among us who like to eat while wondering if we really need that new pair of shoes. Shine it strong on the King of Corn Dogs, bedecked in stripes of gold and blue and red, crowned with a bucket hat. Oh, and that limeade. Lets try something crazy. Lets put something on a stick!
Two Nebraska Angus Rolls Stuffed with Cheese, Cornmeal Battered and Deep Fried. On a Stick.
Bonus: Limeade Available Tuesday Only.
Wednesday June 4th - Turducken
Every holiday season some jokester brings up the idea of serving Turducken at a family function, only to be roundly ridiculed, realize the difficulty in preparing such a dish, and slump back to the kitchen to prepare Great Grandma’s sweet potato casserole. Well Burger Week is our holiday season, and this year that jokester will get the last laugh...

Friday June 6th - The Big Max
Looking through our Instagram feed at previous Burger Week mania we got a bit nostalgic and felt down right proud of all the BurgerLords who have attended over the years, so we decided to throw a Flashback Friday challenge out to all our followers. Help us choose the burger to be featured on Friday of this years Burger Week we asked. And the people have spoken.

Saturday June 7th - The Smoinkster
"Do you smell that? It's the Smoinkster, son. Nothing else on the world smells like that. I love the smell of the Smoinkster in the morning. You know, one week we had lines around the building, for 12 hours a day. When it was all over, I walked around. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' unsatisfied customer. The smell, you know that smoky smell, the whole place smelled.... excellent” - Captain Andre Guerrero

Sunday June 8th - Lucy Goosey
There is a certain amount of mystery surrounding the Juicy Lucy. Minneapolis claims to be the original home of this burger but can’t decide if she spells her name, Juicy or Jucy? Other burger shacks across the nation make so many varying forms of the Lucy she might be going through an identity crisis. We’ve invited her to be a guest star on the final day of Burger Week 2014 to put the record straight, or to add something else to her ever growing myth.
