15 cent burgers deal

This was the scene on Monday when a mob of hungry Filipinos turned out for a 15-cent burger deal offered by the Zark’s Burgers restaurant chain.

The restaurant chain offered the 15 cent burger deal to celebrate the chain’s eighth year in business.

The only catch was the 15 cent burgers were offered to the first 80 people in line.

Cell phone video taken at one location shows hundreds of hungry Filipinos queuing in line at the burger joint hoping to be among the first 80 to grab a 15 cent burger.

Just think of all the people who took off time from work to wait in line for the bargain burgers.

    No way! Times cannot be that hard! I bet it was noisy too—my neighbors are from the Pill-a-peens.

    Crazy

    I get coupons for free burgers at Hardee’s all the time if I’m short on cash I go grab one but rarely do I see other customers there. Popeyes use to do the 5 dollar bucket and I would show up first thing in the morning and there be a line out the door already. Arby’s use to do the 5 for 5 and it would be crazy busy there too.

    There old leader had to flee the country the new government was trying to lock her up, they probably try to kill her now.

  • Kanyade

    those burgers would have to be the most splendifirous burgers ever made! for me to take off work, drive down to the outside mall, stand in line/in a crowd and wait for a burger that’s 75% off the regular price. Or whatever. ain’t nobody got time for that! well those somebodies in the picture do, but you know, not me.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    the first 80 people. I never stand in lines so even if they were handing out bags of money, I’d miss out.

  • Look@m3

    I’m sorry aint no burger, chicken wing, mac and cheese, pizza, fries, cake, ice cream or drink worth this. Sorry, crowds like this intimidate the heck out of me. Watching this shakes my nerves.

  • Dowoop

    There is clearly a lot more than 80 people there so why even bother.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    folks in that post-80 cutoff crowd better pool those 15-cent savings and get them a pack of ground beef and go in peace and eat, lol

  • imright

    damn how much are the burgers normally ? ???

  • Jennifer

    Harolds and Uncle Remus should offer .15 wings from time to time. $10 for 6 wings is ridiculous, but its so good, we keep paying.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    They bout to get served, Human Donkey Horse Kangaroo Roadkill meat burgers!

  • Karen Brady

    Same. I hate crowds especially tight ones and I will not be trampled like it’s Black Friday at Walmart honey.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Sandra, who are these advertisers on this site? Listen girl, I just saw an ad with Carrie Fisher in it with a before/after fat/skinny graphic. They talking ’bout ‘Carrie Fisher looks great now’ (wtf????) …yall goin to hail for that…. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/615d380290005c75f2b73b61063d678adb00cb683258e4273a2f5c12b8d5723d.gif

    We’re talking $0.15 in a country that isn’t as “rich” as America. Some people probably camped out because they knew on THAT day, they could afford to feed their family.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I have been meaning to comment on this. There are ads saying people are dead when they are alive, on crack, etc. Smh. It’s ridiculous.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Yes! and it’s so obvious that I’m not even tempted to click on any of them, smh

  • http://www.beautyisland.weebly.com Indigo

    Long lines.. I’m turning around.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I’m just happy that they are others. Kinda dispels the belief that only AA’s line up for a deal, hunh?

  • Soda

    How many times can we be told we’ve lost Cher?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What 15 yr old boy or girl asked for a morning wood post on 21 Savage. Who?

  • You Could Never

    I mean I kinda dont care about hungry Filla-peen-ahs where there are hungry cold wet Houstonians in my own country to GAF about. *shrug*

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Agreed and truth be told there are Americans that would have camped out for the very same reason.

    Coming soon.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Very true.
    I’ve been to the Philippines and have seen their living conditions. I will never speak ill on them being in mob crowds for cheap food.

  • Rayne

    Harolds is good if you are good and drunk lol

  • Look@m3

    Right. I stopped doing large crowds back when people were dying getting trampled on in clubs. I was a club in ATL when 50 cent came and people started that stupid mess. That was my last night every since then I don’t even do concerts, I may do a small outdoor old school one but I cant be at the no Dome with enclosed walls with a million people. Its a breeding grounds for people to commit a large crime, one I don’t want to be a part of.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    True! At the same time, I’m not going to talk bad about these folks lined up for cheap food. Some of those restaurants in Houston need to do something similar. I saw some stores in Houston charging $40.00 for a 12 pack of water. These folks in dire need and money mongers looking at supply & demand overcharging for necessities. That’s damn ridiculous!

  • hotntot95

    um…if it’s 5 people ahead of me, I may still walk off….I don’t care if it’s free…?

  • hotntot95

    It’s nothing out here that would make me stand in a line like this but..
    ? Never thought about it this way…

  • hotntot95

    Omg…these ads are ridiculous

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • starbright9449

    Lmao

  • Vegas1989

    I’m with you…I don’t participate in FREE stuff…Not even the samples at Costco….I’m in and out….I’ll wait until business is back to normal. I have other things important that waiting in line….

  • starbright9449

    Lmaooooooo

    Does this mean Filipinos are illiterate and mathematically challenged?

  • hotntot95

    Ikr…(the doctor, my car tags, this is a necessity) i don’t do lines….I don’t know why but I don’t even feel like I missed out…I truly don’t care …

  • itsjismemelly

    this can not be true

  • Rahab

    So true. The eclipse threw me off and I missed 50 cent tacos at Pepe’s. Didn’t need them anyway, lol.

  • Karen Brady

    That’s disgusting and shame on them.

  • Karen Brady

    Boy I’m sure.

  • Karen Brady

    Ooh you sound just like me.. I stopped when folks were dying trapped in club fires and what not. I feel the same way about big arenas.. no sirree.. you can find me at home not caught up in some panicking, hysterical crowd. I panicks enough for my damn self. lol

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Human meat kangaroo meat horse meat rat meat meat pattied into a burger

  • FallenOne

    you all see that one video of the Chinese visitors going crazy over the las Vegas buffet all you can eat? was worst than the mothers day brawl in Atlanta..thinking of Atlanta who ever at at Padraics? would you recommend it./

  • Tena

    This is a damn shame. All this for a damn $15 cent burger?? If I couldn’t just walk in the door and pay for my meal, it wouldn’t be worth my time.

  • MRiGOThim

    Okay sooooooo its their 8th year…where does the 15 cents come into play???? I mean 8 cents or 80 cents would’ve made more sense/cents, lol

  • Armymom20

    The only catch was the 15 cent burgers were offered to the first 80 people in line. LOL looks like way more than 80 people.

  • Jennifer

    It was the 1st stop after leaving Jokes & Notes! When the grease is clean, it can’t be beat!

  • Jennifer

    I didn’t know about that! I LOVE Pepe’s! 79th is the best!

  • Rayne

    I hate that jokes and notes is gone. I miss George wilburn crazy self. Harolds mild sauce is the shiznet tho!!

  • Jennifer

    We’ve gotta get our comedy clubs back! I was a kid when All Jokes Aside was around, so J&N was everything! That may be a good market to tap into. Zanies and Laugh Factory just don’t do it.

  • Rayne

    Zanies and the laff factory is too lame for me. I Need that ghetto real ness.

  • ShWa

    ummm no thanks.

  • Rahab

  • MythCalledLove
