Pimento Burger_Hopdoddy

Hopdoddy’s newest burger is a thing of beauty. The pinetop pimento cheeseburger consists of a patty ground-in-house seasoned and seared to medium perfection atop buttery, crisp watercress, tomato and onion, then generously slathered with homemade pimento cheese, three slices of apple smoked bacon, and a farm fresh fried egg. If you want a bite you’ll have to head over to Hopdoddy pretty quick: The limited time burger is only available through Sunday.

It’s not often that you encounter free food at a restaurant, let alone a happy hour during the weekend, but you’ll find both this Saturday at Dough. The popular pizza spot is serving up some light bites and discounted beer during a Lexington Brewing happy hour event. Pair your fresh h’ordeuvres with bourbon barrel stout, bourbon barrel ale, or pumpkin barrel ale from Lexington Brewing Company.

If you like to pair these sweltering August days with some spicy food, Blue Mesa Grill has you covered. Through September, Blue Mesa Grill is featuring a whole slew of menu items in honor of its 18th annual Hatch Chile Festival. Get your green chili on with chile pozole, chile grits, or even a Hatch chile brownie sundae.
