Charles Ramsey, the Cleveland man that put his McDonald's meal on hold to help Amanda Berry escape from Ariel Castro's home earlier this month, will never have to pay for a burger again thanks to a thoughtful gesture from a group of Ohio restaurants.

More than a dozen Northeast Ohio restaurants have pledged an offer of a burger anytime Ramsey wants to stop by and dig in. AMP 150 at the Marriott Cleveland Airport; Washington Place Bistro and Inn in Little Italy; Fahrenheit restaurant in Tremont; Market Garden Brewery, Bier Markt, Bar Cento and Nano Brew in Ohio City; Welshfield Inn in Troy Township; Hodges and Pura Vida in downtown Cleveland; 87 West at Crocker Park in Westlake; Orchard House restaurant in Brunswick; Flour restaurant in Moreland Hills, and the Allegheny Grille in Foxburg, Pennsylvania, have joined in the offer.

Additionally, the restaurant where Ramsey works as a dishwasher, Hodges, has created the Ramsey Burger, which is a play on the infamous Big Mac recipe because that's what Ramsey was eating when he stopped to help Berry. [Cleveland.com]
