"Can't Stop the Hop!"

The Hamburger Hop kicks off a month-long feast with Chicago Gourmet!

“Can’t Stop the Hop” presented by DoorDash features 100+ contending burgers available at restaurants citywide.

The long-standing annual kick-off to Chicago Gourmet, the popular Hamburger Hop expands beyond Millennium Park in 2020 with Can't Stop the Hop presented by DoorDash.

This year, more than 100 chef competitors offer tasty burgers for dine-in, delivery or carry out from September 1-13. Food lovers are encouraged to hop around town, or visit the DoorDash app or website, try as many burgers as possible – and based on flavor and overall presentation – vote on their favorite at chicagogourmet.org.

Participants around The Magnificent Mile include:

The champion will be announced the week of September 14 and will receive a magnum of fine wine from Josh Cellars, a Yeti cooler filled with premium meat and seafood from Buckhead Meat of Chicago and bragging rights for a lifetime.

$1 of every burger sold benefits the IRAEF Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, a statewide emergency assistance fund that provides direct financial support to restaurant industry workers facing unforeseen hardship as a result of COVID-19.
