JerryBuilt Homegrown Burgers
3501 West Holcombe, 713-664-2874

This burger haven is offering its classic burger and house-sauce-smothered Jerry's burger – both made with all-natural Angus beef on freshly baked buns – for $5 (reg. $7.50) this Friday.

Jonathan's The Rub
9061 Gaylord, 713-465-8200

In honor of the special holiday, chef Jonathan Levine has put a sweet spin on his traditional Rub burger by creating the Cinnamon Bun Rub cheeseburger. That's a juicy nine-ounce patty topped with sautéed onions, bacon, creamy Havarti cheese and Levine's signature Jonny sauce, all of which gets sandwiched in a sliced cinnamon bun. We repeat. A burger on a cinnamon bun! Get the special for $17 on the lunch menu throughout September.
