If you haven't had Welcome Diner's PB&B burger yet, we know what you're thinking: There's no way that peanut butter, bacon, pickles, cheese, and beef go together. But somehow it really does work.

Crunchy nutty peanut butter, sharp cheddar, sweet and spiced pickles, and smoky, salty bacon all add equally strong, but very different flavors to the burger, making for intense, explosive flavor that's both comforting and exciting all at once. All of that business is topped on a perfectly-cooked, juicy burger and held together (somehow) between two soft, but substantial burger buns.

For those Instagram sensations out there, you can even order one of these bad boys (or any other Welcome burger), post a shot of it, and tag Welcome Diner with the hashtag #WDBurgerContest . If your burgergram has the most likes by July 31, then you get a free one. After your first one, you'll probably want a second one and at $10.75 a pop, getting a free one wouldn't be too bad of an option.
