It's always great when two favorites team up, like Van Damme and Dennis Rodman in Double Team, something the Worm previously never drew in his entire career. Delivering the heavy-hitting duo of burgers and rock 'n roll, BGR The Burger Joint.
Making its Sunshine State debut on Saturday, Virginia-based BGR is flooded with rocker nostalgia including walls lined with record covers ranging from Def Leppard to Blondie, MTV-logo'd and Beatles-covered tabletops, flatscreens looping old music videos, and a guitar signed by Steven Tyler, even though at this point, you're dyyyyyying to forget him. Grain-fed prime aged beef is leveraged for creations like the Cuban Burger topped with slow-roasted pork, serrano ham, sweet pickles, and Swiss, and The Wellington, which's smothered in deep-roasted mushrooms, caramelized onions, black truffles, garlic, bleu cheese, and mojo sauce, which Mike Myers has been trying to reacquire since 54. They've also got The Greek, a lamb patty with cumin, mint, and garlic that's covered in tzatziki, feta, red onion, and cucumber and that beat out Bobby Flay's in Throwdown, and an intestine-endangering 9 Pounder that's free if you're able to house the gargantuan 3lb patty plus add-ons like two heads of lettuce, eight tomatoes, a "river of mojo sauce", and four pickles, which's more than even Benny the Jet Rodriguez with a fresh pair of PF Flyers could get you out of.
For drinks, it has tapped suds like Brooklyn Brown, Bells 2 Hearted, and Blue Moon, red/white wines, as well as a Jetsons-esque, Pininfarina-designed computerized soda fountain that can create 106 unique flavors (cherry Sprite? Hell yes.) via a touch screen, which you couldn't stop upon seeing Dennis Rodman shirtless with green hair.
