Wednesday Night promotion going on 35 years; has a life of its own
Should you find yourself on the north end of Capitol Hill near downtown Seattle some Wednesday and marvel at what all the commotion is about at the intersection of Broadway and Roy streets; it might very well be pedestrians and autos jockeying for position near The DeLuxe Bar & Grill. The quintessential neighborhood spot, known for its burgers and nineteen rotating beers on tap turns 50 years old next year. For 35 of those years, The DeLuxe has hosted a midweek promotion called Burgerama. Featuring full size, hand formed, custom ground prime chuck burgers (choice of DeLuxe hand-cut fries, salad or a cup of soup) all day, at the unbelievable price of $5.59*. (*requires purchase of beverage, dine in only). On Wednesday evenings, the line in front of The DeLuxe, hints at a 45 minute wait and the party going on inside.“Burgerama is the original midweek break, a tradition at the DeLuxe since 1977, a way to see a lot of regulars and new faces in the restaurant,” says Barry Rogel, second generation restaurateur. My family’s had the DeLuxe since the early 60’s, but it’s been on the corner of Broadway and Roy since 1932, and we have always been the neighborhood hangout. Burgerama is in line with that tradition – great quality at a great value – it’s been a privilege to be part of the ever changing scene on Capitol Hill for all these years.”
How could The DeLuxe improve on the burgers being offered? In the last two months tastings with DeLuxe guests and staff set out to answer that question: the burgers are now even bigger and the buns were resized to fit the patty perfectly. A new, Thursday night promotion, not surprisingly called, Steakarama was added. How do you top Burgerama? Steakarama!
