Burger joints were hot spots in the 1950s, the perfect destinations for taking dates and discussing the pros and cons of updating the town from black and white to technicolor. Fondly remember the good old days with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of burgers, fries, and drinks at the BRGR Joint, located in Bryn Mawr.
Established by a trio of burger-loving buddies, the BRGR Joint tantalizes taste buds with a menu touting fresh patties, fries cut daily, and local veggies. The Lil Cheese BRGR’s ($4.19) single disc bursts with classic flavors boosted by your chosen blend of free fixings, including grilled mushrooms, jalapeño peppers, and house-made dressings. The OMG BRGR (up to $28 depending on the number of patties) towers over the table, its up-to-11 patties forming an edible high-rise that explodes in a shower of neckties and typewriters when eaten. Saccharine aromas of doubled-cooked sweet-potato fries ($1.69 small, $2.79/regular) float across the aftershock as griddles sizzle under hearty grilled-cheese sandwiches ($2.59).
The BRGR Joint’s eatery is punctuated by sleek wooden floors and seating. The inked walls mirror the owners’ penchant for body art, surrounding diners with life-size tattoos of eagles, hearts, and caricatures of Howard Taft.
