The Watkins Glen Speedway Pierogi Burger is new on the menu at “The Glen.” This classic Northeastern-inspired burger adds the comforting flavors of savory pan-fried potato-and-cheese filled pierogis and grilled onions to an all-American burger.

We added our own “secret sauce” accented with a splash of steak sauce and fresh-cut shredded lettuce. Feel free to make this burger your own with your unique condiment choices.
