You weren't going to be on a diet until January anyway, so make a stop at Buddy's Burgers for one (or both) of their holiday specials.

When you're a big fan of Rockford restaurants you follow a lot of them on Facebook, which is something I highly suggest, because that's how I came across these incredibly creative holiday specials.

I mean, c'mon, Buddy's Burgers, you guys are WAY too creative!

If I had to choose between the two, I think I would pick the Elf burger first, but only because I like the movie better. Maybe I need to give The Grinch another try, but Elf is my favorite and I know I would be quoting the movie while biting into the syrup covered burger, egg and bacon combo.

Yum.

I knew Buddy's was creative, Sweet Lenny and I made an Ate One Five trip there last year, but these holiday specials sure take the cake.
