Pizza and cheese-stuffed burgers dominate the menu. Merkts cheddar both fills and tops the burger patty known as Hillbilly Paradise, which is also piled with pulled pork and Kentucky bourbon barbecue sauce ($13.50). Peanut butter stuffs the Fat Elvis patty, heaped with banana, bacon, and banana-infused ricotta ($12). All burgers come with a choice of fries, jonny corn, or other side. A pizza called Hangover Helper stacks pepperoni, bacon, and fried eggs atop its pie ($12.50–$25), and the Tree Hugger white-sauce pizza tops its spinach, red onion, and portobello with tomatoes and another heap of mushrooms ($13–$26).
The Squared Circle
Professional wrestler Lisa Marie Varon owns the Thrillist-praised eatery The Squared Circle, and the walls won’t let you forget it. In framed photos, a screaming Varon slams her opponents onto the ropes of the ring and torques their torsos into unfortunate positions. These snapshots of Varon's award-winning bombast mirror the bold flavor combinations that dominate the menu, which includes Saturday and Sunday brunch. Inventive toppings pin down her unique pizzas, and the burger patties here, like one's pockets after a lunar landing, are stuffed with cheese. One such iconic creation, the Windy City burger, pairs layers of mushrooms, onion rings, gouda, and avocado with an additional payload of gouda stuffing best washed down with a mug of craft beer. Another, the Fat Elvis burger, pairs ricotta and applewood-smoked bacon with banana and a peanut butter-stuffed burger. The white-sauce-painted crust of Lisa Marie's namesake pizza serves as a ring for port-caramelized onions, blue cheese, and prosciutto to duke it out atop a bed of apples and arugula.
