About this Business
From Our Editors
Located at Covington's perfectly-grilled core, the comic-book-themed WhackBurger aims to knock out and lock up hunger with a single powerful weapon: burgers. Burgers so massive that, as Cincinnati Magazine said, they "would still appear large when grasped by Andre the Giant's fist." As if those piled-high patties weren't enough of a handful, the kitchen still sends out every burger with a choice of side, ranging from the traditional (fresh-cut fries with house-made ketchup) to the offbeat (jambalaya, broccoli slaw).
While the walls are covered in comics and superhero-inspired murals, the menu is more like a choose-your-own-adventure novel. In addition to weighing your side options, there's a choice of patty: beef from nearby Heringer Meats, turkey, or a vegetarian black-bean patty made in house. Finally, you'll choose one of more than a dozen topping styles. With bacon and peppercorn mayo, even the Classic is far from standard-issue, but and wilder possibilities take inspiration from Cajun, Cuban, Mediterranean, and German cuisines.
