Cheeseburgers in Paradise


Ah, cheeseburgers in paradise… a great Jimmy Buffet song that happens to be our reality. Celebrate with your fave meal between buns on National Cheeseburger Day, Sept. 18.

Help kids, and get a free burger: The Habit Burger Grille

Kids, cheeseburgers and NASDAQ are in it all together on Sept. 18, when officials from The Habit go to New York to join No Kid Hungry execs in ringing the opening NASDAQ bell.

This is the result of The Habit Restaurants partnering with No Kid Hungry, where restaurant guests donate $2 at the register and receive a certificate for a free Charburger—with cheese—on their next visit. That’s good till Oct. 14.

The Delray Beach Habit Burger (1801 S. Federal Highway) is the first Florida location to participate in the program.

Other good cheeseburgers to nosh on:

Grease Burger Bar (213 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) is a classic cheeseburger destination, with the Sweet Caroline (bacon, Carolina BBQ, Vermont white cheddar, pictured), among 18 others.

Tanzy’s bun-stuffing burger is on the menu at lunch and weekend brunch (301 Plaza Real.) The Tanzy Burger (pictured) is a wood-grilled 10-oz. Angus patty with apple-wood smoked bacon, smoked Gouda, beefsteak tomato and arugula on toasted rosemary focaccia.

Then there’s Shake Shack in Boca Raton, Relish in Northwood and Palm Beach Grill in Palm Beach—the list goes and on and on. Enjoy National Cheeseburger Day!
