Square One Burgers & Bar sates ravenous appetites with nine varieties of patties—including sashimi tuna and buffalo—and an extensive menu of savory burgers and sandwiches. The Aloha chicken gives a down-to-earth ground-chicken burger an otherworldly pineapple halo and a shroud of smoked bacon ($9.99). Ground buffalo meat, onion rings, and spicy beer-cheese mingle on the plains of the Buffalo Bob burger, which makes frontiersmen's hearts swell with both pride and bacon ($13.99). Those hungry for plant sinews can feast on the tomato hearts and avocado livers of the vegan veggie burger ($8.99), and then wash it down with a strawberry shake ($4.50), beer, liquor, or wine. Square 1's burger maestros pair all of the sandwich-related creations with a side of fries, steamed broccoli, or cole slaw and adorn bare burgers with a choice of 25 toppings, 12 cheeses, and 13 sauces.
The Angry Pickle's house-made spicy pickles sit across the high-topped tables from hand-shaped burger patties and a selection of 14 draught beers in a casual eatery. Appetizers such as fried pickles, available in dill or a house-crafted angry spicy blend, named after Sporty Spice after her exposure to hulk-inducing gamma rays, dance across taste buds, and palatable jalapeño poppers burst into a culinary fireworks display of gooey cheese.
