Cleveland hero Charles Ramsey to receive free burgers for life

Over a dozen restaurants offer "Chuck Card"

CLEVELAND - Charles Ramsey gave back the reward money offered to him for rescuing the three girls trapped in a Cleveland home. But this next offer might be too good to pass up.

More than a dozen restaurants in Northeast Ohio have pledged to offer Ramsey a free burger anytime he stops by, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The restaurants range from the AMP 150 at the Marriott Cleveland Airport to the Hodges and Pura Vida in downtown Cleveland, the newspaper reported.

Scott Kuhn, who operates four of the restaurants participating in the offer, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that they “wanted to honor a local hero with local food.”  

"He stopped his meal midway through to help those women,” Kuhn said. “We're now making sure he has other opportunities to go out and fully enjoy his burger."

All Ramsey has to do is to use a single-edition “Chuck Card,” anytime that he visits one of the participating restaurants and he’ll be served with a free burger for life.

Also to top off the deal, Hodges restaurant, where Ramsey works as a dishwasher, created the Ramsey Burger which chef-co-owner Chris Hodgson described it as an “eight-ounce burger of Certified Angus Beef, served with special sauce,” according to the newspaper.

The Ramsey Burger, modeled after the Big Mac, was first a temporary item, but now has a permanent spot on Hodges restaurant’s menu.
