George Webb celebrating Brewers Opening Day by bringing back 5 for $5 burger deal
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- George Webb is bringing back its popular 5 for $5 burger deal just in time for Brewers Opening Day.
Just as they have in past seasons, 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.
George Webb, the restaurant’s namesake and founder, opened his first diner in 1948 on the corner of Ogden and Van Buren in Milwaukee.
George Webb himself once promised the hometown team would win 12 games in a row, and when that happened, he would grill free hamburgers. To this day, the restaurant company continues to honor its founder’s legendary pledge, with the first-ever giveaway occurring in 1987. The second giveaway took place in 2018 when the team caught fire shortly before the postseason and embarked on a 12-game winning streak. Afterward, restaurants across the state served 90,000 free hamburgers and distributed more than 100,000 redeemable vouchers to fans who wanted to claim their piece of history at a later date.
“Last season brought us an opportunity to celebrate and fulfill the promise of our founder with the next generation of fans,” said Ryan Stamm, vice president of George Webb Restaurants. “This season, we hope to see another year of twelve straight wins and will be ready to once again fire up the grill!”
