The $6 Burger(s)

The Indy and Various Restaurants Team Up for Burger Week

To kick off summer, The Santa Barbara Independent decided to get into the picnic spirit by hosting an 11-day affair called Burger Week. The event, which runs June 29-July 9, involves burgers, but there’s a twist: We’ve partnered with 12 eateries from Goleta to Carpinteria that will be offering custom-made hamburgers. While their creations may vary, the price is the same — $6.

During Burger Week, our Patty Partners will be firing up their grills, toasting their buns, and serving up their special creations, which include everything from classic to veggie to over-the-top-with-toppings fare. No matter which burger you choose to devour, be sure to snap a photo and share it on Instagram with #sbindyburgerweek to be entered to win a gift card to one of our Patty Partners. Below is the list of participants and what they’re serving up.
