Burger & Brew is the place you should head to if you are craving a burger. You will be spoilt for choices as you are presented with a variety of patties such as beef, chicken, and vegetarian. If the burgers on the menu are not to your liking, you can customize a burger of your own. Besides burgers, they also serve up saucy wings, ribs, and wraps. Their wings and ribs are flavourful, tender, and can be described as fall-off-the-bone. People who are looking for a healthier alternative can go for the chicken salad. The grilled chicken coupled with the fresh and crunchy vegetables will make you go for seconds. Burger & Brew may not have an array of sides for you to choose from but their sizzling hot french fries and onions rings are a perfect complement. Their sides have been fried to perfection, yet with each bite, you will not have that greasy feel in your mouth. Complete your meal by ordering one of their craft beers.
