A Burger A Week – BrewBurgers Pub & Grill
We’re down in south Sarasota County for a burger tasting!
November 15, 2022
🌟🌟 We’ve got an interactive Burger Map to help us track our Sarasota A Burger A Week adventures. Now your burger info is just a short click away! Take a look at our Sarasota Burger Tracker! – A BURGER A WEEK MAP 🗺️
This week’s burger stop has an official eight-bay Tesla Supercharging Station in their parking lot! I mean, it’s on the Tesla map! ⚡
Yes, that is just as odd as it sounds. I’m 14 stops in, and I will tell you this was not something I expected to see!
Our stop this week is right off of I-75. So the charging station makes some sense. You can plug in, recharge your EV, walk 50 paces and recharge yourself with a burger from BrewBurgers Pub & Grill. If you need a nap afterward (and you may), there’s a Holiday Inn Express right there!
This place reminded me a little of stop #3 at Shake Pit. It has a super old-school feel to the whole thing. It’s not quite as basic as Shake Pit. BrewBurgers will give you an actual menu (not the menu board), and you will have your very own server.
It has a nice and comfortable outdoor seating area. Lots of room to relax and dine under the bright yellow awning.
There’s an inside too. It’s a little cozier.
When you check out the menu here, one thing will immediately become apparent. These are not your ordinary burger creations. Someone (possibly a little off-center 😂) came up with these crazy combinations. In a word, the menu is FUN.
There are a staggering 16 burgers to choose from. 16! I mean, we have visited places in this series that have just one lone burger on the menu. This is a place for those of you who are really willing to take it to the burger limit!
Let’s talk about our BrewBurgers Pub & Grill burger experience…
RESTAURANT: BREWBURGERS PUB & GRILL (370 Commercial Ct., Venice (941) 484-2337)
DATE OF VISIT: OCTOBER 26, 2022
STOP #: 14 OF 52
BURGER TASTED: THE “OLLIE G.”
📒 OUR TASTING NOTES
🍔 This burger is served as listed on the menu: Bacon, garlic & herb cheese, spicy olive tapenade, chipotle ranch ($13.99)
Right out of the gate, I can say that this burger tasted like a burger (you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about). Great beefy flavor. It’s a good size, too, 1/3#.
I loved the olive tapenade. The flavor of that topping shines through everything else. It’s not overpowering. But it helps tie all of the other things going on here together nicely (and there is A LOT going on).
The bacon had a savory smokiness to it. Thick cut and with a texture that sets it apart from the burger patty itself.
This is a BIG, delicious mess of a burger. There is no other way to say it. And there is no way to eat this neatly. So just don’t worry about it. Dive right in; just tuck a few bucks away for the post-burger laundry. (OH, they bring you EXTRA napkins without even asking! They know…)
TOTS! – Yes, our first tater tot sighting of the series. I love tots, and I know that you do too! A plate of tater tots will always brighten your day. 😊
This isn’t the kind of place where you would expect five-star service. I guess you really can’t tell a book by its cover. My server, Ashlee, kept everything running smoothly. Great service!
Let’s check out how all of this looked when I ordered it…
BURGER TAKEAWAYS: Lots of burger choices here • Some really creative combinations • Casual inside and outside dining space • This burger is $14, but you get a lot of burger for that $14 • Have an EV? Charge it! ⚡
👀 SNEAK PEEK: OK, we’re taking a short burger break to enjoy all of the turkey we can stomach. But when we return (12/6), we’re headed back to SK for a burger that will make you think you just hit the lotto…
We want to hear about your Sarasota burger experience. So much so, in fact, that we’ve started up a special Facebook Group just for this A Burger A Week series. So, feel free to share your Sarasota burger experiences, photos, and anything else burger related you’d like others to know about.
