From the Original to Gourmet, Burgers Rule At Broadway

Posted in Dining

Americans love their burgers. The ultimate comfort food, a really good burger can be one of the greatest culinary experiences known to man, woman or child.

It's hard to believe that the burger has only been around since 1900. That's when genius restauranteurs started putting the so-called "hamburger steak" on a bun and adding condiments.

At Broadway at the Beach, hamburgers and cheeseburgers are among our visitors' favorite foods. Our restaurants have been serving up great burgers since they opened their doors in the mid-1990s.

Broadway is home to Johnny Rockets and its specialty, "The Original Hamburger." This one-third pound burger is the star that launched the restaurant in 1986. Rockets' cheeseburger version has been rated a 12 by diners using a scale of 1 to 10!

Burgers served by Hard Rock Cafe are sure to shake, rattle and roll you into hamburger heaven. Seven different varieties start out with a half-pound of Angus beef and build from there. Hard Rock serves up a great burger experience from the "Classic Burger" with traditional "fixins" to the exotic "Tango Burger" layered with slow-cooked Sloppy Joe, American or jack cheeses, barbecue sauce, and finished with blue cheese and horseradish mayonnaise.

Good Time Charley's offers 16 different types of burgers. From traditional American cheeseburgers to the "All In" burger with jalapenos, bacon and more, to "The Hangover" burger with its over easy egg on top, there's something for every burger lover.

At Liberty Brewery & Grill you can grab a specialty beer and build your own burger. Starting with a certified Angus beef burger, the add-on possibilities include an assortment of cheeses, applewood smoked bacon, bacon & onion marmalade, crispy onion straws, fried bread & butter pickles, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, balsamic onions, and Southern slaw. Yum!

Wet Willie's starts off with its "Original American Classic" burger, but from there it's a wild ride into the world of gourmet burgers. Cheeseburger sliders and kosher dill pickles are served on a stick, the "Burn Baby Burn " is blackened and topped with Louisiana hot sauce, pickled jalapenos and Pepper jack cheese; and the "Hawaiian Lei Burger " is teriyaki glazed and topped with grilled pineapple and bacon. If you like mushrooms and Swiss cheese, the "Swiss Guard " has them. But the most unique burger is a "Better With Butter" which is smothered in a mound of grilled-in-butter sweet onions and topped with American Cheese.

From the original to the gourmet, burgers rule at Broadway.
