Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill + Bar announced another deal on Tuesday: every delicious, juicy, piled-high Handcrafted Burger on the menu is now available with a side of fries for only $7.99. For a limited time, guests are invited to enjoy a variety of craveable burger options, including the Brunch Burger, Whisky Bacon Burger, Quesadilla Burger and more, smash-grilled on a flattop and made to order at their neighborhood burger restaurant.

With nine tasty, high-quality burger options to choose from, it’s no wonder Applebee’s serves more than 20 million burgers each year—and every single one of them is made with smashed, 100 percent fresh, never frozen North American ground beef for a juicier, more flavorful burger that’s handcrafted with only premium tasty toppings.

“Our burgers are crazy good, and a guest favorite on our menu for sure,” says Stephen Bulgarelli, chief culinary officer of Applebee’s. “We give our guests a huge variety of burger options to fit the moment—feeling traditional, our Classic Burger is here for you; adventurous, we’ve got you covered with the Quesadilla Burger; missed breakfast, we put an egg on our Brunch Burger to satisfy your cravings.”

Guests can enjoy any burger on the menu, with a side of hot fries, for just $7.99. Participation varies by location. The Handcrafted Burger menu includes:

  • Whisky Bacon Burger: Savor the rich flavor in this tasty original. Caramelized onion and bacon seared into an all-beef patty piled with Pepper jack cheese, crispy onions, more bacon and Fireball Whisky-infused steak sauce on a Brioche bun.

“Nothing beats a burger and a beer. If you’re going with our Brunch Burger, pair it with a Blue Moon Belgian White. The zesty orange flavors of America’s favorite wheat ale brighten any burger that has an egg on top of it,” says Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s. “If you go for a Quesadilla Burger, pair it with Applebee’s one-and-only, Perfect Margarita to complement the flavors.”
