17 Jul PBR and a Beer
I’m a gigantic fan of a PBR and a beer. An ice cold, large can PBR paired with a super delicious, greasy, cheesy, bacon-covered burger. Luckily I have managed to wrangle several clients into becoming my client who are my favorite places to get my favorite meal. Where should you go to satisfy this craving? Here are some suggestions…
DBA Barbecue – sure they’re known for their barbecue and mac ‘n cheese more than anything, but don’t forget they have a mighty delicious burger on their menu. Whether you want to go with the Double Diner boasting two patties and American cheese, or the DBA Burger with pimento cheese, fried onions and cole slaw, you really can’t go wrong.
Diesel Filling Station – ah my home away from home, and the cause of my PBR and burger obsession. This dive-bar separates its menu between hot dogs and burgers and that’s pretty much about it outside of the bar food appetizers. There’s plenty of options for the burger and also sides (the sweet potato tots are heavenly, and don’t forget the chili cheese fries). I go with the Burger of the South – topped with bacon and pimento cheese and Coca-Cola ketchup.
Grindhouse Killer Burgers – perhaps one of the best burgers in the city, Grindhouse is perfect for a burger and a PBR out on their patio. Try the Apache style with green enchiles or the Hillbilly with brisket chili. Oh and always make it a double – always.
Hi-Five Diner – owned by the same guy behind Grindhouse Killer Burgers, the meat is the same style, but it’s not the same burger. Think sesame seed bun with two beef patties and LTO, served with steak fries. Classic and delicious.
Pijiu Belly – believe it or not, this place has one of my favorite burgers in the city. The Asian-meets-bar-food concept offers the Pijiu burger with kimchi, giving it a different flavor, but trust me when I say how juicy this burger is.
Republic Social House – ain’t no better place for rooftop patio drinking and devouring a burger than this place. They keep it simple with the Wimpy Burger, with an Angus beef patty and LTO. No frills here, just a tasty burger.
Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards – chef Savannah takes a normal burger and makes it better with her Southern chef touch. The burger is made with Brasstown Beef, making is a local and farm-fresh burger, then offered in a variety of styles like the Ronald, modeled to taste like a Mickey D’s burger or the Olivia with pimento cheese, green tomato relish and bacon and the Farmstead with Bacon, fried egg, tomato, smoked gouda, herb aioli.
