We’re all aware that today is Memorial Day, but did you know that it’s also National Hamburger Day? As the unofficial start of summer is upon us, it feels like the right time to put one of the season’s most popular indulgences in the spotlight. With countless burger options available throughout Walt Disney World Resort, I wanted to share a trio of my favorites. In my humble culinary opinion, below are three of the most incredible burgers available at Disney Springs:
The BBQ Bacon Burger, available at House of Blues Restaurant & Bar – Served with fries, this standout burger is topped with cheddar cheese, apple-wood smoked bacon, crispy jalapenos, sautéed bourbon onions and Memphis BBQ sauce. My friend Maggie, the Marketing and Promotions Manager for House of Blues, summed it up by sharing, “It’s soooooo good.” She’s right – the mix of flavors blends together seamlessly and every bite is as tasty as the one before.
The Edison Burger, available at The Edison – This was the very first item I tried at The Edison and it set the stage for the rest of the menu. A signature dish for the venue, this 10-ounce beef patty blends sirloin, short rib and brisket and is topped with sharp cheddar, crispy onion rings and a layer of smoked bacon. Garnished with house-made pickles, in-season tomatoes fresh from local Florida farmers, and a special sauce, this one is packed full of flavor. Plus, it comes with a side of hand-cut Electri-fries. Pro Tip: Ask for extra napkins; chances are you’ll need them!
The Southern Burger, available at D-Luxe Burger – It’s so hard to pick at #1 favorite, but if I had to, this burger would be it. As a Georgia girl, anything that features a perfectly cooked fried green tomato and Pimento cheese gets my vote. Add lettuce, onion and bacon to the signature blend beef patty and it’s easy to see how this continues to be one of the location’s best sellers. Feeling ambitious? Pair it with the Smoked Bourbon Gelato Shake, always on the menu but currently being featured as part of Discover Bourbon at Disney Springs, taking place through Father’s Day.
