Looking for a fancy burger? The New York Prime Burger from Wolfgang’s Steakhouse is perfect for the sophisticated palate. Their patty is made with ground USDA Prime dry-aged sirloin— high-quality meat unlike anywhere else. A slab of thick bacon goes on top, while fresh tomatoes and lettuce flank the sides. And to finish off this glorious meaty burger? A generous helping of cheese sauce and two soft buns to keep everything together. This indulgent burger can be yours for the taking through your choice of pickup or delivery— more details here.
11. Pancake Burger (Jollibee)

Pancake is a basic breakfast item. So are eggs and bacon, too. But what happens if you put all three together? You get a Bacon, Egg and, Cheese Pancake Sandwich! A mix of sweet and salty flavors all encased in a handheld treat, this Jollibee breakfast item is as quirky as it gets because you get pancakes instead of the usual burger buns. Start your mornings on a good note by getting this via pick-up, drive-thru, and delivery in these branches.

The faction may be divided for pineapples on pizza or not, but Jollibee gives pineapple lovers something to pine for (pun intended), and that’s their Amazing Aloha Yumburger. Comprised of the usual fixings you’d expect from a Jollibee burger— langhap-sarap beef patty, Jollibee’s signature burger sauce, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese. Right in the center, you get a thick slice of pineapple for that sour-sweet refreshing taste that contrasts with the burger’s overall meatiness. And the good news in all this? It’s here to stay, for good! Get your own burger via pick-up, drive-thru, and delivery in these branches.
