Participating restaurants will offer a special $9 beef burger for the event. Some restaurants are creating unique mouth-watering burgers just for the week, and others are featuring their most-loved burgers. Burger lovers can indulge in the offerings for lunch and dinner. As an incentive to dine often, each patron can upload their receipts showing the purchase of the featured burger to the Rock City Burger Week website for a chance to win a PKGo Tailgating Grill package and gift cards to purchase beef at a local meat market in varying amounts for a first-, second- and third-place winner. 

Visits to at least four different restaurants will be required.

As an added benefit, the Arkansas Food Bank will receive $1 for each of the first 1,000 burgers sold at participating restaurants from the Arkansas Beef Council.

Participating restaurants in Little Rock or North Little Rock include, as of Tuesday morning, The Root Café, Big Whiskey’s, Hill Station, Bennett’s by Keith & Co., Rosie’s Pot & Kettle, Town Pump, Loca Luna, Red Door, Diamond Bear Brewery, Skinny J’s, Dugan’s Pub, South on Main, Dizzy’s Gypsy Bistro, The Croissanterie, Gadwall’s Grill, McBride’s Café and Bakery, Stone’s Throw Brewing and Corky's BBQ.
