Macon Burger Week

The annual Macon Burger Week in Georgia celebrates America’s beefiest handheld in all its glory. For one week each year, restaurants around the area showcase creative takes on burgers, each vying to have the winning burger at the end of the week. The Eat a Peach Burger, from Ocmulgee Brewpub received the title of the best burger in previous years, thanks to its sweet-and-savory richness from the peach pico de gallo and fresh burst of basil aioli.
