Burguesa Burger Celebrates Mexican Independence Day on September 16

The Mexican hot dog: it ain't pretty, but it sure tastes good.

To commemorate Mexican Independence Day, Burguesa Burger is hosting a celebración on September 16, 2010. September 16 (diez y seis de Septiembre) is an important date in Mexican history. On that day in 1810, a war for independence began that would eventually free Mexico from Spanish rule. This year is the bicentennial of Mexican Independence Day. 

During the festivities, Burguesa is giving away Mexican hot dogs to the first 200 guests at each location. (Why 200? Because it’s the bicentennial, of course!) Mexican hot dogs are bacon-wrapped franks stuffed inside a toasted bun and topped with grilled tomatoes, onions, and jalapeños. Every Mexican hot dog also comes with Burguesa’s creamy special sauce. After September 16, Mexican hot dogs will become a permanent fixture on the Burguesa menu. 

In addition, Burguesa is giving away a free combo to any guest wearing a sombrero. Just be prepared to get your picture taken—and expect said photo to end up on our Facebook wall. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. But we know you’re a good sport.
