Limited Time Only: Mercadito Burger

By Sarah Freeman  |  October 21, 2013

It's Burger Week here at Zagat, and we're celebrating in style. Join us each day as we profile a different Chicago burger - all available for a limited time - or better yet, Tweet or Instagram us a pic of your best burger for a chance to win $100 (for more burgers, of course). Don't forget the #BurgerWeek hashtag!

Opening this fall, Mercadito Counter will offer a taste of its popular River North restaurant in a fast-casual, grab-and-go setting. The new restaurant will feature Mexican street food classics in an American-style deli (think tacos on top of house-marinated meats). The eatery will also serve a signature Mercadito Burger: a blended rib-eye and short rib patty with jalapeño butter, Manchego cheese and grilled scallions. It's a gourmet burger with a spicy twist, and just for you, dear readers, it's available in preview at Mercadito for one week only. Grab the extra-special Burger Week treat - along with a side of fries - today through Sunday for $15.
