A Washington-based burger chain is offering free “nothing burgers” for customers this week.
Z-Burger announced Monday that it would offer customers a “Nothing Burger” consisting solely of a hamburger patty and a bun at Z-Burger’s Tenleytown location, in reference to the frequent refrain from President Trump’s defenders that his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer was a “nothing burger.”
Customers have to say the password “nothing burger” to redeem the deal.
In a news release, Z-Burger founder Peter Tabibian explained the offer.
“For years, when someone ordered a plain burger, I have always yelled out the order as as ’nothing burger’ to my cooks, so I think that I actually invented the term,” Tabibian said.
