Santa Cruz Burger Week 2024

Santa Cruz Burger Week plates up for the sixth sizzling year!

Seven Days of Burger Love from Feb. 21-27, 2024. Plant-based options too!

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week and Good Times are pleased to announce the sixth annual Santa Cruz Burger Week—seven days of burger love, as only Santa Cruz can do it. The spinoff of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week—an annual fine dining event that has enjoyed growing success in its 13 years—includes more participating restaurants.

The inaugural Santa Cruz Burger Week in 2017 was a smashing success, with restaurants scrambling to keep up with demand. Participating restaurants requested that Santa Cruz Burger Week be moved to an off-season, so now it spans seven nights from February 21- 27, 2024.

The Burger Week concept is simple: Each participating restaurant can offer one or more specially-priced burgers and will feature one at price points of $12, $15 or $18. It may be à la carte or include sides. This event is an opportunity for local chefs to debut a new burger or introduce more customers to their favorite or most popular burgers. Burgers may be beef, chicken, lamb, fish, portobello, vegetarian, vegan — or whatever a chef might create. This year, all participating restaurants are also offering a takeout option.

Santa Cruz Burger Week shines a spotlight on the local food culture in Santa Cruz County, allowing restaurateurs and chefs to showcase their individuality and creative talents, and diners to try a new restaurant or new menu item for the first time.

A list of participating restaurants and their featured burgers are regularly updated on SantaCruzBurgerWeek.com through the February 21 cutoff. Good Times’ Santa Cruz Burger Week issue will be published on February 21.

Visitors to the site can learn about participating restaurants, make reservations, sign up for email alerts and follow Santa Cruz Restaurant Week on Facebook. Giveaways for gift certificates to participating restaurants are held several times a week on Santa Cruz Restaurant Week’s Facebook page.
