BG Cheeseburger Week 2023

Start your engines, pass the napkins and share your pictures … get ready for Bowling Green, Kentucky’s inaugural Cheeseburger Week kicking off on Sept. 18, National Cheeseburger Day!

To add a flavorful topping to the celebration, the public is tasked with posting their cheeseburger to social media and tagging the restaurant and Visit BGKY account for the chance to be randomly selected to receive a BG-themed prize basket from the tourism office. 

Burger & Bowl

Bowling Green couldn’t celebrate Cheeseburger Week without Burger & Bowl. Order and enjoy one of their 3 classics below, and feel free to pair it alongside a decadent milkshake (we recommend the Nutella)!

Classic Patty Melt – Juicy Black Hawk Wagyu beef patties, American cheese, Swiss cheese, Novo sauce on sourdough toast.
