Who knew there even was a National Greasy Food Day? I sure didn’t, but I’s bet more than a few folks might be looking for a an excuse to dabble on the culinary dark side toward the end of a hectic work week.

In my world the best “greasy food” really doesn’t taste greasy at all, but celebrates the cheesy, melty, porky, and crunchy hallmarks of foods that taste so darn amazing they can’t possibly be that good for you.

So set aside the salmon and spinach for a single day and snag a local burger, pizza, grilled cheese, fish fry, or pork belly breakfast hash on August 25th to honor the day! We’ve got NINE local options to get you started!
