You can’t throw a pickle in this town without hitting a burger. The classic beef sandwich is on nearly every menu in Charleston, from dive bars to fine-dining restaurants. Hell, even Mellow Mushroom added a burger this year. But unlike other cities overrun by boring burgers, we’ve got myriad kickass choices — from cheese steak toppings to chorizo patties. And don’t even get us started on the pimento cheese options.

All of which is why we’re celebrating the great and holy bunned one with our inaugural Charleston Burger Week. And to really season the deal, 30-some local restaurants have signed on to offer discounted burgers. Just put on your eating pants and grab a Charleston Burger Week Passport for all the details. Oh and pro tip: Hunger is the best sauce.
