Three burgers: Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Burger, Buttered Burger, Double Trouble Burger

Burger Inspiration Comes in Many Flavors  

Which regional favorite is ready to leap onto your menu? 

The world is teeming with tasty burgers. No matter where you go, there’s a tempting burger on the menu. Sampling them all sounds like something we’d all like to do, but who has the time? 

We asked our Gordon Food Service culinary team to rise to the challenge. They looked around and suggested burgers popular in the places where they dine. But they said picking a favorite was like choosing the “best” condiment. There are no wrong answers, and the only limit is your burger imagination.

The fun part is up to you … deciding on one (or many!) for your menu.
