Washington, which would eventually become Gold Star.

“Gold Star is obviously well known for our secret family recipe chili, made fresh in small batches every day. What some folks still don’t know is that many of our restaurants – especially new locations and those who have recently remodeled – now serve an expanded menu of dishes that bring us back to our roots,” said Gold Star President and CEO Roger David. “We’ve got delicious burgers that are done the classic way – a fresh, all-American beef burger is grilled to order and topped with traditional-yet-delightful toppings to really let the burger speak for itself. We know that when you come in to try a burger, served with crinkle-cut fries and a drink, you’ll see why we think things are done better our way: classic, darn-good burgers.”

In addition to the classic original and vegetarian chili dishes made with our secret family recipe, Gold Star’s neighborhood restaurants with the expanded menu now serve grilled-to-order burgers, loaded fries, chicken sandwiches, salads and hand-spun milkshakes. “There’s truly something for everyone on this new menu, and we can’t wait for you to join us for a meal and let us know what you think,” David added.

Hours for Burger Week vary by location; participating Gold Star restaurants will make the deal available for both lunch and dinner. To find a Gold Star near you serving up the Cincinnati Burger Week deal, visit

At Gold Star, we’re all about the chili. We’ve been serving our guests the most flavorful, delicious Cincinnati Chili since 1965 when the Daoud brothers pooled resources to purchase a restaurant in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Mt. Washington. Chili that’s always fresh, never frozen. Made in small batches every day to ensure quality. Crafted from our founders’ secret family recipe of 13 perfectly blended spices to make Cincinnati’s classic chili favorites the Cheese Coney, and 3-, 4- and 5-Way Chili Spaghetti. Our menu offers something to make everyone happy from fresh grilled-to-order burgers, gluten-free vegetarian chili and double-decker deli sandwiches to loaded French fries, hand-tossed salads and 100% real ice cream shakes – all made with the same passion for quality and flavor as our chili. Today, Gold Star has more than 75 corporate- and franchise-owned locations throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana and is actively developing new franchise opportunities in the region.
