May marks the beginning of ‘cue season and it is also National Hamburger Month! Margaritaville is celebrating with three limited-time-only specialty burgers inspired by the different regions of the Americas.

One of the most celebrated holidays at Margaritaville®, National Hamburger Month returns to honor a true American icon—the hamburger. Starting May 1 through May 31, Margaritaville Orlando, along with locations across the country from the Bayou to Baja, will celebrate with specialty burgers that pay homage to regions of the Americas. Margaritaville will also pay tribute to its signature burger “Cheeseburger in Paradise” that has been served with a side of fun for almost 30 years.

To prepare for the month-long celebration, Margaritaville® connected with thousands of fans spanning the country, encouraging them to share their version of the perfect hamburger. The burger components surveyed ranged from the preferred type of patty to toppings, condiments, buns and sides. Out of more than 17,000 respondents, almost 82 percent of those surveyed preferred beef to turkey or vegetarian patties. An astounding 93 percent voted cheese as the number one topping, with cheddar as the favorite. Lettuce, tomato, bacon and pickles also got top votes. Ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard were the most popular condiments with barbecue sauce and Heinz 57 coming in fourth and fifth place. Naturally, the favorite side item was French fried potatoes with 77 percent of the respondents opting for a big kosher pickle and 53 percent choosing a cold draft beer as their beverage of choice to enjoy with their burger.

All burgers can be substituted with veggie or turkey patties and are available with gluten-free buns. Burgers are served with a choice of French fries, sweet potato fries or mixed green salad.
