Chicago Burger Chain offers Epic Portabella Deal

Epic Burger's Portabella Sandwich

It’s no secret that Mondays often get a bad rap. Luckily for all of our Chicago fans out there, and anyone visiting over the holiday week, we have a juicy surprise to share that will transform the Monday blues. (Here’s a hint: It involves mushroom freebies).

Epic Burger, a popular Chicago burger chain, knew they wanted to do something special when a Portabella burger was added to the menu. With a mission statement focused on “creating a more mindful burger” they wanted to sell a product that not only tasted delicious, but let you feel good about indulging. In coordination with the popularity of #MeatlessMonday, they put a local (and mushroom-filled) spin on the trend with the launch of #MushroomMonday. On any given Monday, a customer can walk in and receive 20% off a Portabella combo. Sounds pretty great, right? Well the fun doesn’t end there!

This week the fun is not just reserved for Monday. Tomorrow on July 2nd the chain is hosting a FLASH SALE where they will be giving out portabella burgers for FREE. No purchase or coupons necessary just walk in before noon with a hungry appetite and reference you saw this blog post.

To ensure you try the portabella burger at its absolute finest, check out the topping recommendation from Epic Burger which includes, Horseradish Havarti cheese (from Wisconsin), grilled onions, tomato, pickles, lettuce & Epic sauce.

Along with this vegetarian delight, at Epic Burger you can find a variety of palate pleasers. Choose from classic ground beef, turkey or chicken as your base, and then move onto the fun.  Add some buttermilk blue cheese or toss on a fried egg.  Quality is the name of the game at Epic. Take a look at the “Epic Rules” that ensures every bite of your burger is as good as the last.

Check off packing a lunch for tomorrow, because burgers are on the menu.
