Strasburger mania hits D.C.



By the sixth strikeout Tuesday night, I had already been alerted to at least three different Strasburgers for sale in greater Washington. There will be more, friends, there will be more.

Glory Days (Pictured): A fresh, prime burger seasoned with our signature grill seasoning and then "brings the heat" with Spicy pepper jack cheese. California style Guacamole tops the burger and pays homage to Strasburg's San Diego roots. Garnished with hot red pepper rings and served on an artisan roll with lettuce, tomato and onion.

The Burger Joint: This hot dog atop a burger smothered in aged Vermont cheddar pays homage to Strasburg's fine beginnings as he climbs up the ranks to baseball stardom. The hot dog, symbolizing his professional debut on the Phoenix Desert Dogs in 2009, will be topped with "Syracuse Orange" aged Vermont cheddar, representing his promotion to the Triple A- Syracuse Chiefs in May 2010, and placed on top of the iconic BGR burger patty, signifying his current home on the Nationals. BGR will add a pickle for every strikeout Strasburg throws at his debut game tonight. The Strasburger will be available through the end of June.

To further show DC's appreciation for Strasburg joining the Nationals, $1 from every burger sold will be donated in his name to the Children's National Medical Center. The burger costs $10.99.

Tortilla Coast: Via Darren Rovell, this Capital Hill joint is selling a Strasburger featuring two honey glazed burgers, jack cheese & fried onions for $11.37. Get it, 37?

UPDATE: A reader says Ebbitt Express is selling Strasburg Hot Dogs for $8.50, complete with sauerkraut, diced onions and mustard with potato salad or coleslaw.

UPDATE: A colleague reports that Loeb's Deli downtown has introduced The Strasburgers: three sliders with fries for $10.37.

That burger looks absolutely disgusting.

Tortilla Coast? I'll pass, even before that ridiculously overpriced burger.

I don't know what kind of burger dbunkr likes to eat, but the one in the photo looks pretty good to me. Then again, I'm from San Diego, home of Strasburg's alma mater SDSU, and we put guacamole and pepper jack on just about everything around here. That aside, the patty looks nice and juicy, and the side veggies look crisp and fresh. I don't know where the "absolutely disgusting" comes from, unless dbunkr is just a rival restaurant owner who is trying to undermine the people at Glory Days. I know you east coasters can get a bit snippy sometimes.

Good luck to the Nats. I lived in Rockville, MD for three years growing up. I always liked that part of the country.

IT was noted by Blue911 over at WNFF.net, but 3 consecutive sliders and taters is a Nievesburger.
