Dayton Burger Week, a partnership between Cincinnati CityBeat and The Ohio Beef Council, is set for Aug. 6 to 12.

Participating restaurants will sell gourmet burgers for $5 each.

Mudlick Tap House  is among the restaurants that have signed on to participate.

Jennifer Dean, the co-owner of the eatery at 135 E. Second St. in downtown Dayton, plans to offer three burgers: its signature Black Hawk Farms wagyu beef burger,  its white bean tabbouleh burger and one created by the winner of a social media contest that also comes with a pair of tickets to the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

BONNAROO TICKETS: Dean said the person who posts the "best burger tribute" to an act performing in the festival — set for June 7-10 in Manchester, Tenn. — in the comments of Facebook and Instagram posts about the contests will win.

“We thought it would be fun,” Dean said of the contest that closes at 8 p.m. Sunday, June 3.

Here is the description from the Facebook page:

From gourmet blends to off-menu specialties and even beer pairings, this is a week dedicated to America’s sweetheart, the Hamburger! Each restaurateur and Chef will prepare their unique take on the burger. Dine-In, Take-Out, & Delivery options available, depending on location. 

The idea is to get people to embrace the food, culture and Dayton-love while getting them out to eat, drink, and try new places! 

Burger week will draw hardcore burger fanatics and people that can appreciate a good hearty meal. So fire up the grill and let burger mania take control!

Dean said the week will be similar to Cincinnati Burger Week, set for July 16-22.
