Who among you here wasn't able to join the craze of the recent Backyard Burger CDO weeks ago? Well, if they say that the #BBCdo hype was a success, why not give it a try to our very own J Burger in Cdeo!...

To all Kagay-anons, do mark your calendars on July 19, 2014 at 10 AM 'coz J Burger Divisoria Branch will be open! OpS!!! Just a reminder, be there before the opening time because you can only avail the promo burger of Php 1 for the first 100 customers. But before that, you need to buy any burger at a regular price before you can get the classic J Burger at 1 peso plus you can just avail a maximum of 2 burgers per person.

So what are we waiting for? See you all there on Saturday since I myself haven't tasted this proven yummy and juicy flame-broiled gourmet burger in town!

You can also visit their main branch at Tomas Saco cor. 6th Street, Nazareth
