9 Local Restaurants To Visit During Gwinnett Burger Week

Returning for its ninth year, Gwinnett Burger Week is a weeklong celebration will feature limited-edition burger creations for just $10.

You’ve been hitting the gym, getting in your 10,000 steps every day and staying away from the Friday office donuts. Doesn’t all that willpower deserve a treat?

Explore Gwinnett, the official tourism organization of Gwinnett County, is sponsoring a special event that will certainly satisfy cravings for something tasty.

Returning for its ninth year, Gwinnett Burger Week is taking place March 18 through 24. The weeklong celebration will feature limited-edition burger creations for just $10 at 21 restaurants across the county. Southwest Gwinnett is home to nine of these restaurants.

Besides indulging in all that succulent, beefy goodness, participants have an opportunity to help pick the county’s best burgers. Explore Gwinnett has outlined the easy-to-follow steps:

Gwinnett Burger Week pass instructions

STEP 1: Get your pass at Pass.ExploreGwinnett.org.

New this year is the mobile pass with no apps to download. It allows consumers to earn prizes for visits during Gwinnett Burger Week. And according to Explore Gwinnett, more visits could mean more prizes.  

STEP 2: Receive a text.

The pass will be instantly delivered to cell phones via text or email. It will be ready to use during Gwinnett Burger Week. (A tip from Explore Gwinnett: save it to your home screen for easy one-tap access all week long.)

STEP 3: Use your pass. 

When visiting a participating restaurant, check in to collect points. Save up points for the prize that you want. Don’t forget to turn on location services to check in.

Some other sage advice from Explore Gwinnett:

  • Don’t forget to vote in the “People’s Choice” contest for your favorite burger.
  • Hang on to your recipient and take a photo of it to qualify to vote for the burger of your choice.
  • Eat early as the restaurants could run out.
  • Don’t leave your burger lonely. Ordering a beer or appetizer is not required for Burger Week, but wouldn’t your Instagram burger pic look so much better with fries or locally crafted beer in the frame? 
  • Show some hashtag love. Tag Burger Week, mention Explore Gwinnett and give a shout-out to your favorite eatery. Use #GwinnettBurgerWeek.
  • Dine in. The Gwinnett Burger Week promotion is not available via any third-party delivery service (i.e., Grub Hub, Uber Eats, Door Dash), and it’s not available for takeout.

Explore Gwinnett worked with locally owned restaurants to get patrons some of the most awesome chef-created burgers with a side in the area.

It’s a deal that’s easily valued at $15 or more. So, Explore Gwinnett is encouraging everyone to please tip servers at least 20%.

Uncle Jack’s Meat House features the ‘Popin Jack,’ a beef blend patty smothered in a hearty mix of applewood smoked bacon, roasted jalapeños and cream cheese topped with its famous chipotle maple glaze.

The seeds for Uncle Jack’s Meat House were planted when Willie Degel was growing up as the youngest of four boys in a lower-middle-class family in Queens, NY.

From a young age, he heard stories about the New York steakhouse and speakeasy owned by his late godfather and great-uncle Jack in the 1920s. Inspired to own his own business one day, he bootstrapped himself from operating a childhood lemonade stand to running multiple newspaper routes, starting a neighborhood handyman service, and then tending a bar.

He then opened his first bar and restaurant in 1988 at the age of 20. Now, the Uncle Jack’s brand is tailored to today’s interest in natural, organic and sustainable ingredients. It’s the next milestone in Willie’s journey to deliver the ultimate restaurant experience.
