571 Grill and Draft House will feature the Haystack as their $6 burger. The Haystack is usually $13.
Juday described the burger as a “Flagship Burger.” It is a combination of blended USDA chuck, brisket and short ribs served on a grilled brioche bun, covered with smoked gouda cheese and applewood smoked bacon and stacked with their 571 sauce, onion straws, jalapenos, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle, he explained.
“That’s been our most popular burger ever since we introduced it,” Juday added.
Since this is the restaurant’s first year participating in Burger Week, Juday said he does not know what to expect. They are planning to increase their burger prep by 25 to 30 percent and have extra product on hand.
In 2017, 571 Grill and Draft House was highlighted on the tourism website Travel Pulse as having the best burgers in the Midwest. The restaurant has also been featured several times on Dayton.com for having extraordinary burgers.
Juday explained that since they have found that burgers are a niche, his profits have increased every year.
“We’re thankful for that. It shows where our strength is, so we’re going to focus on that and go forward with it,” he said.
