With the weekend here, a lot of the snowbirds gone and the sun heating things up nicely, you’re forgiven for going out and having a fun-in-the-sun party. But there’s always the next morning regret, and that’s where TooJay’s new Hangover burger (pictured) comes in. For a hearty remedy, this burger has caramelized onions, American cheese, bacon and remoulade sauce topped with a fried egg. That will take care of your headache and any feelings of hunger, too. For National Burger Month, TooJay’s has also created the avocado burger (with Swiss cheese, arugula and lemon garlic aioli along with the avocado), and the BBQ burger.

Available at all locations.
