George Webb 5 for $5 deal returns for Brewers season
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- With the Milwaukee Brewers back in-action at Miller Park, George Webb's famous “5 for $5” burger deal is also returning.
When the team scores five or more runs – home or away, win or lose – all 30 George Webb locations will offer five burgers for $5 through midnight the following day.
In 1948, George Webb opened his first restaurant on the corner of Ogden and Van Buren in Milwaukee. Webb predicted the team would win 12 games in a row, and when that happened, he would provide free burgers to fans. Although it took some time, his prediction finally came true in 1987 as the Crew tore through the competition on their way to a 13-game winning streak. Afterward, the company served almost 170,000 free hamburgers to the best baseball fans in the country.
The restaurant is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.
