D-Luxe Burger: Behind the Best Burger at Disney Springs

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

D-Luxe Burger recently celebrated National Burger Day with a newly refreshed menu. With fan favorites and revitalized classics like the Classic Bacon Cheeseburger, Barbecue Burger and the Pizza Burger, there’s something for every palate.

Inside D-Luxe Burger at Disney Springs

One
of the new additions is the signature 1921 sauce – which actually is a callback
to the history of D-Luxe Burger and Disney Springs. As the story goes, the
Sinclair family discovered a beautiful natural spring in 1850 – in the area we
know today as Disney Springs. The Sinclairs were cattle ranchers and settled
along the spring, founding Glowing Oak Ranch. The oldest Sinclair son visited
the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904 where he tasted a new invention known as the
hamburger. Inspired by this innovation, in 1921 (here’s where the signature
sauce gets its name), the Sinclairs turned Glowing Oak Ranch into Glowing Oak
Restaurant in the growing Town Center area. The thriving business was passed
down through generations, and is now the D-Luxe Burger that we know and love
today.

Decor inside D-Luxe Burger at Disney Springs

Step
inside and you’ll notice details and décor that are all a part of the history
of D-Luxe Burger. The front part of the restaurant is what was originally the
Sinclairs’ cabin. You can find the original, hand-written 1921 sauce recipe
hung on a wall, along with postcards from the Sinclairs, posters announcing the
grand opening of Glowing Oak Restaurant and more. And if you head to the back
dining room, you’ll see the original Glowing Oak Ranch sign. Outside the
restaurant, there is a large oak tree. When the Sinclairs first arrived, they
held many a campfire under the tree, which inspired the name Glowing Oak Ranch.

Here’s another fun fact: the hamburger buns are made daily at Amorette’s Patisserie! Be sure to stop by D-Luxe Burger next time you’re at Disney Springs.
