CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Fairmount Cocktail Bar in Cleveland Heights has a surprise when Cleveland Burger Week returns.

Cleveland Burger Week 2019 starts July 15 with 25 participating restaurants.

From July 15-21 area restaurants, pubs and bars featuring their best burgers for $5.

“It’s been crazy,” Alex Gober said about the burger he just recently added to the menu. “I did not expect as much excitement about the burger when I came up with it.”

The Farimount Burger, or affectionately called the “Go Burger” for its creator, features a brioche bun, steak seasoning, brie cheese, bacon-date chutney and topped with crispy shallots.
