Do you have a favorite local burgers and beer joint that you go to often? If so, what makes it your favorite? Do you judge it strictly on the burgers, or are there other things that you consider? Do you like the beer selection or the music they play? Is the location important to you, or if they offer happy hour? When it comes to judging a burgers and beer joint, is it about more than just the burger?
At 5280 Burger Bar we think that first and foremost the quality and taste of the burgers is the most important thing to look for. The burgers should be made from fresh beef, never frozen, and the toppings should be delicious, interesting and made from scratch.
So aside from the burger, there are some other important things to look for in a great burgers and beer joint. First, what’s on the rest of the menu? Do they offer other choices like side dishes, soups, appetizers and salads? Do they put the same attention to detail into the rest of the menu as they do the burgers? You should be just as happy with a burger as you would be with anything else on the menu.
Second, the drinks. A great bar menu is a must at a great burgers and beer joint. Beer is the perfect match for a rich, juicy burger and there should be a wide variety of styles available, as well as a selection of craft beers alongside the classics. Ideally there will also be really great cocktails like martinis and margaritas, as well as wine and other liquors.
