Stella's Lounge offers famous $3 anniversary burger during day-long celebration

Grand Rapids - (WZZM) It's one of Grand Rapids' most popular businesses and today Stella's Lounge, in Grand Rapids, celebrates its 5th anniversary.

Stella's is known around the nation for its award-winning burgers. Today customers can get those coveted patties for a bargain.

"We are offering our famous stuffed burgers for $3 today throughout the day. Like the Stella Blue that is stuffed with blue cheese and bacon bits," said general manager, Kevin Stanley.

Stella's burgers was named "Best in America" by "GQ Magazine" in 2013; Best in Grand Rapids by "Grand Rapids Magazine" in 2014 and 2015 and Best in Grand Rapids in "On the Town" in 2014.

In honor of its five year anniversary the bar/restaurant will also offer $5 Michigan whiskey flights, free arcade games and bourbon-barrel beer tappings throughout the day.

"We have three different special beers being tapped. At 3:00pm we have the Founders KBS. We are starting off with Perrin we are also going to have some New Holland Smokey Creek and a lot of great, great stuff throughout the day," he said.

Stanley expects the atmosphere to be as energized as ever throughout the day-long celebration.

"The video games are a great popularity for us. Obviously it is a great thing to be able to sit down and drink and play some video arcade games," he said. "Today is going to be pure celebration of everything we do here. And a lot of that is giving back to the community as well."

For the first time, Stella's will also offer a limited number of ticketed table reservations with 100% of the funds raised from ticket sales being donated to C-Snip, non-profit, charitable organization, providing high quality, high volume, low cost spay/neuter surgery for dogs and cats whose caretakers cannot pay the fee at a full service veterinary clinic

Each year Stella's has offered customers a deep discount on its anniversary. However, this will mark the last time customers will see the $3 burger.

"Every Thursday night is still our burger night where you will be able to get them for $5," said Stanley. "Last year (during the anniversary special) I believe we sold about 1,200 during the anniversary special) and maybe a little over and this year we hoping to break that and sell about 1,300 or 1,400 maybe.

Stella's Lounge is located at 53 Commerce Avenue SW in Grand Rapids. The $3 burger special is from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. (limit one, dine-in only, with drink purchase). The celebrating will go on until closing time at 2 a.m.
