Charles Ramsey gets free hamburgers for life!

Apparently, creating a special hamburger to honor Charles Ramsey was just the beginning. Now, the hero in the rescue of four kidnap victims held captive on Cleveland’s West Side for roughly 10 years will enjoy free burgers for life.

More than a dozen Northeast Ohio restaurants have pledged an offer of a burger anytime Ramsey wants to stop by and dig in. AMP 150 at the Marriott Cleveland Airport; Washington Place Bistro and Inn in Little Italy; Fahrenheit restaurant in Tremont; Market Garden Brewery, Bier Markt, Bar Cento and Nano Brew in Ohio City; Welshfield Inn in Troy Township; Hodges and Pura Vida in downtown Cleveland; 87 West at Crocker Park in Westlake; Orchard House restaurant in Brunswick; Flour restaurant in Moreland Hills, and the Allegheny Grille in Foxburg, Pennsylvania, have joined in the offer.

“We want to honor our local hero with local food,” said Kuhn, who operates four of the restaurants participating in the offer. “He stopped his meal midway through to help those women. We’re now making sure he has other opportunities to go out and fully enjoy his burger.”

Does he get fries with that, or is this just a loss leader?

    Nothing from McDonald’s????

      Hopefully not.

    • Glenn E. says:

      Good! If it were a Burger King or Wendy’s, that might be saying something. But McD’s are the cheapest of them all.

      And not among the eaters listed, in the article. So none of the national chains felt the need to reward Ramsey. Just a few independents. And the offer probably won’t last his “lifetime”. Maybe the lifetime of whatever “special” burger they dreamed up, just for him. Clever eh?

    I think it’s a nice gesture from local restaurants.

      Amen. It is what it appears to be. Good people being good people.

      This type of outpouring of generosity was the norm back in the day. I applaud the people giving to someone who was a hero for a day.

      When I was a youngster I’d go down to Carvel on my bike and ask if they had any mistakes. Back then if somebody ordered a chocolate cone and a vanilla was made, the “mistake” would be put in the freezer. Nowadays, forgetaboutit!

    If he’s a real hero, he’s gonna leave his ‘hood, call their bluff, and go to their fancy pants joints.

    Food for thought..

    The money is in the fries and fountain drink. Either way, inexpensive marketing .

    • nikelectric says:

      Yes the money is in the fries and drinks, because they cost the fast food joints next to nothing, and the charge a fortune for them. Sandwiches are usually the loss leaders at these places. If they were really cheap, they would have just given him free fries and drinks for life instead. Free burgers is actually more expensive for them to provide.

    Don’t tell that little bitch, Hannah Robertson, about this.

    This is how we reward heroes?

    We give them junk food?

    Silly Hoomans.
