Avalon Park Burger Guide

Avalon Park Burger Guide

May is National Hamburger Month!  According to National Today, the name “hamburger” comes from the city of Hamburg, Germany. When residents of Hamburg were headed to the eastern shores of the United States during the 18th century, many of them brought a snack called the “Hamburgh sausage.” This snack, like its cousin the “Rundstück warm,” combined a meatball similar to the Swedish meatball with a slice of bread for utensil-free handling.

You can celebrate this month and every month in Avalon Park with many great places to get a delicious burger.  It can be difficult to know where you should go if you’re in the mood to eat burgers and fries on a night out with your friends.
