'The Black Keys'-Inspired Umami Burger is Drowning in Velveeta, Perfect for Lonely Boys


Cheese might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Grammy-winning rock group The Black Keys (we're guessing it's probably something more like tiny onyx underwater vessels). But cheese is the defining feature of the new Black Keys-inspired burger at Umami.

Created in honor of the band's hometown of Akron, Ohio, the Akron Burger is surprisingly bright for such a somberly-named band. Featuring a beef patty, chopped onions, and dill pickles doused in yellow mustard, secret sauce, and Velveeta fondue, the big yellow mess will be available for $13, $1 of which will be donated to The Black Keys Alfred McMoore Memorial Endowment Fund for people with mental illness.


Luckily, this is one love that won't keep you waiting, since the Akron will roll out to all Umami locations by July 1.
