May is National Hamburger Month, and several fast-casual and fast-food chains are offering deals to help you celebrate.

Wendy's is running a $1 BOGO burger special for in-app purchases. BurgerFi rolled out its $14 Hoppy Meal, which includes an Angus beef cheeseburger, fresh-cut fries, and a draft beer. And Smashburger just announced a new promotion, too, specifically geared toward kids. And this one extends beyond the month of May!

Starting today, the Denver-based burger chain will be offering a free Kids Meal, good for children under 12, every Wednesday, with the purchase of any Adult Meal. The promo will run all the way through June 29.

At Smashburger, an Adult Meal includes a burger or sandwich, a side, and a drink, while a Kids Meal features a choice of a hamburger, cheeseburger, or three crispy chicken strips, a side of fries, and a drink.

The offer is limited to one free Kids Meal per in-store order. The deal is not available online, in-app, or for third-party delivery services. Smashburger, which currently operates 223 U.S. locations across 35 states and Washington D.C., will be running this promotion in 176 of its restaurants. See the full list of participating locations here.

The launch of this deal comes shortly after the fast-casual burger chain made headlines for its new restaurant concepts. At the end of March, Smashburger unveiled its first restaurant with a full-service bar at its twenty-fourth location in Colorado. The restaurant, which is located in the brand's hometown of Denver, offers craft cocktails, canned beer, and beer on tap.

Additionally, Smashburger will be launching its first virtual drive-thru lane in Houston later this year, according to Nation's Restaurant News. The concept will allow customers to place their orders ahead of time and drive up to the location to pick up their food.
