The Spaniard

Chef Austin Kirkland took it up a notch when he opened his retro-dive burger joint, Big Gun Burger Shop in 2011. Styled with old hub-caps and playing classic tunes, not only does he serve artisan burgers like the Towering Inferno with pulled pork, barbecue sauce, queso fresco, and habanero slaw or the Thin White Duke with mushrooms, bacon, swiss, caramelized onion, and horseradish mayo, he also makes you jealous of the “non-burgers.” There’s the Dirty Gardner vegetable burger with eggplant tomato jam and fried kale and the Jive Turkey with a ground turkey patty, turkey bacon, gouda cheese, avocado, and peach jalapeno mustard. The meat is ground in-house with 25 percent of it brisket and the accompanying fries are freshly cut and seasoned with Old Bay and other spices. Just want to indulge in a classic cocktail or microbrew? The bar plate offerings are the perfect accompaniment with bites like fried Brussels sprouts and the mac-and-cheese fritters with gouda mornay dipping sauce. —Katherine Connor (Dish, Summer 2018)
