Before burgers were introduced to America at the 1903 World’s Fair, portable meals typically involved getting mustard all over your hoop skirt, cravat, or cotton candy. Behold condiment-containing innovation with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and drinks at any of Brew-Bacher's five locations in Baton Rouge and Gonzales.
The sandwich specialists at Brew-Bacher's assemble a broad menu of home-style meat-cheese-bread blends in family-friendly environs. The basic hamburger sports a modest ensemble of mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato on a fluffy bun pedestal ($5.75). A south-of-the-border-seasoned beef patty underpins sautéed onions, jalapeños, and shredded cheese in the Mexican burger, which also features guacamole adornments and flour-tortilla wrapping paper ($7.25). In the cold-cut TKO sandwich, smoked turkey dons alfalfa-sprout suspenders, a guacamole corsage, and a swiss-cheese cummerbund upon a bed of wheat bread ($5.99). Sea-cuisine cravers can nosh on a po' boy with catfish ($7.99), shrimp ($7.99), or oyster ($9.50)—each battered and fried oceanic offering trolling a sea of mayo, lettuce, and tomato—and carbohydrate conservationists could save the life of an imperiled bun with a salad selection ($4.25–$9.95).
Brew-Bacher's friendly wait staff also ushers snacky sides such as piping-hot fried dill pickles ($5.25) or a dozen wings of fire ($7.99). The children's menu miniaturizes burgers ($4.50), corn dogs ($3.75), and catfish ($5.99) for the miniaturized adults called children.
