The grill masters at BurgerQuE flip hand-formed beef patties onto freshly-baked buns, filling each hunger-fettering Burger Bag with four of these epically edible creations. Family size orders of coleslaw and homemade potato chips accompany the tetrad of tasty hamburgers, furthermore sating the cravings of a carnivorous clan. While not included with this Groupon, hamburgers may be built to include extra toppings for an additional cost, such as cheese (starts at $.25), a slathering of chili (starts at $.50), mushrooms (starts at $.50), and bacon (starts at $1), though the technology to insert engagement rings for a fiancé surprise, or a nail file for an inmate surprise, is as of yet unavailable.
In 1984, Steve Birger needed a name for his new barbecue restaurant when suddenly he found inspiration from a Jim Belushi skit on Saturday Night Live. Although he’s no “Rappin’ Jimmy B,” Stevie B similarly hails from Chicago and infuses Windy City influences into his Southern-style barbecue. At his Weston restaurant—under new management—chefs bake ribs before searing them on a charbroil grill, and shred barbecued beef brisket that can fill a Philly sandwich, moonlight as a delicious toupee, or star on a dinner plate alongside baked potatoes and onion rings. Shoestring fries, creamy coleslaw, and other sides round out each meal.
Jimmy Jax sports saucy and savory lunch and dinner menus that boast a boney bounty of baby-back ribs from the award-winning ribsperts at Michelbob’s ($9.99 half rack, $14.99 full rack), alongside other sauceable, sliceable palate pleasers. Chomp down on a Chicago-style thin-crust or new deep dish pizza loaded with cheeses imported from Italy and Wisconsin ($7.99–$14.99 for thin-crust or $10.99–$18.99 for deep dish) and covered with your choice of tasty toppings ($1.49 each), ranging from Italian sausage and Genoa salami to ethnically ambiguous tomatoes, green peppers, and anchovies. Lunch and dinner plates include comforting mouthfuls of smoked barbecue pulled pork ($7.99) and melt-iculously viscid five-cheese macaroni ($7.99 dinner), and suppertime combos ($11.99) pair the restaurant's signature rib-sticking rib racks with one of six other signature tastes (served with a garlic knot and choice of three sides).
Chefs send pizzas, steaks, and a bevy of seared entrees from Firepit City Grill's wood-fire grill to tables and booths lining the chic bar-style interior. Chefs crisp pizzas and flatbreads on the grill, assembling custom-ordered ingredient combinations or preparing specialties such as the Greek Town flatbread, strewn with feta and gyro meat and then topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce ($10). Barbecue sauce smothers the Firepit Rack o' Baby Backs, a tender row of ribs ready to be tickled into submission ($15.50/half, $21.50/full). Sandwiches and wraps package grilled goodies in layers of bread, and the grilled halibut eschews the bun for a miso glaze and the companionship of swiss chard, rice, and sake butter ($24).
Lined with more than 70 high-definition flat-screen televisions and two 110-inch projector screens, Boston Beer Garden immerses diners in 360 degrees of sports. Every seat is the best in the house, whether it’s a brown leather booth on the restaurant's perimeter, a high-top table in the center, or the bartender's lap. Behind the indoor and outdoor bars, the other barkeeps offer various microbrews and domestic drafts to complement the chefs' all-natural, home-style cooking—burgers stuffed with bacon and cheese, for instance, and short ribs braised in Sam Adams lager and Guinnes stout. To accompany nighttime happenings such as pub trivia and live music, the culinary team cooks until 2 a.m. from a late-night menu that includes deep-fried kosher pickles and sandwiches filled with ingredients such as scallions and harvati cheese.
A former linebacker and defensive end, Kim “Bo” Bokamper spent his entire 10-year career with the Miami Dolphins, helping propel them to two championship games. But just because he made his name on the gridiron doesn’t mean his restaurant limits itself to football. Far from it, in fact. Its more than 70 plasma-screen TVs broadcast everything from hockey and basketball to UFC and boxing, the sport where athletes race to pack their belongings.
Those televisions speckle Bokampers' high-ceilinged dining room, where craft beers complement a menu of classic pub food. Flatbreads crowned with marinated sirloin and balsamic sauce give way to “bostrami” sliders, a medley of pastrami, creole mustard, and Russian slaw. And, for a true challenge, The Beast awaits. The signature burger that Naples Daily News calls “the size of a small birthday cake” contains more than 3 pounds of wagyu and Angus beef, applewood-smoked bacon, four slices of cheese, four fried eggs, and fries. If diners finish it within an hour, The Beast is on the house.
A Little Tacky Tiki Bar and Grill's doors swing open to reveal plates piled high with freshly caught seafood, specialty burgers and sandwiches, and a full bar dispensing cooling libations. The crab cake sandwich locks a grilled crab cake inside a toasted roll with chili mayo ($15), and diners can practice their fine motor skills by picking apart beer-steamed shrimp dusted with Old Bay ($9/half lb.). Baskets of fried flounder ($14) or bay scallops ($14.50) cradle batter-encrusted treasures like the hope chest of a chef, and patrons splash gleefully through a pot of mixed steamed seafood brimming with mussels, clams, shrimp, and scallops cooked in a garlic-white-wine sauce ($17). The eatery's bartenders dispense a variety of cocktails, beers, and wines beneath televisions and the rainbow of memorabilia that festoons the walls.
