Lexington Burger Week started today and celebrity tasters Jerry Tipton and John Clay weighed in on the “Jamal Smashburg,” named in honor of former Wildcat basketball star Jamal Mashburn, at Campus Pub on Waller.
Campus Pub is one of 46 restaurants offering special $5 burgers through July 16. The Jamal Smashburg features homemade beer cheese and a beer-battered onion ring on a 1/3 pound burger.
LexGo Eat will have more celebrity guest tasters later this week sampling the special burgers at Stella’s Kentucky Deli, Drake’s, and Shakespeare & Co. Watch Kentucky.com’s Facebook page for more videos later this week. And share your favorite burgers, too, on social media.
The full list of restaurants and burgers, plus Blue Stallion beer pairings, is online at lexingtonburgerweek.com; at participating restaurants you can pick up a “passport” to get it stamped when you try one out.
