KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Local restaurants are getting another chance to cash in on the Super Bowl excitement.

Starting Monday until the Super Bowl, Westport Flea Market Bar and Grill burgers are $2.55.

Owner Joe Zwillenberg said the price symbolizes the Kansas City Chiefs' second Super Bowl in a row and Super Bowl LV.

"It's just a fun way to celebrate what the Chiefs are doing for the city," Zwillenberg said.

Zwillenberg did a similar promotion in 2020 when he made his burgers the price they would have been in 1969 when the Chiefs won the Super Bowl. As he watched the team clench the AFC title Sunday night, he knew he had to bring back the tradition.

"For us, it's more of a thing of giving back to the city, giving back to people," Zwillenberg said.

Zwillenberg said he's grateful to everyone who has continued to support his business during the pandemic. He wants his restaurant to be an escape from the difficult past year.

"We're trying to just make it when they can come here and just forget about all the crazy stuff going on in the world and just enjoy a great burger," Zwillenberg said.

Customer Lauren Hendrickson is in town visiting family. The Kansas City-native said she appreciates the business supporting the community.

"I'm a small business owner myself, and I have gotten a couple grants from our community so I think it's really good any way you can give back is great," Hendrickson said.

After a long and difficult year, Hendrickson said it's refreshing to make a trip home to Kansas City just in time for another Chiefs Super Bowl.

"It's just good to come home and see everybody united and everybody's got their red on in the city, and it's just wonderful, it's wonderful," Hendrickson said.
