South St. Pete NEW EATS-Brewburgers

Hooray! We have a winner winner winner in the burger wars. You must try Brewburgers, south St. Petersburg. 8 days old and already knocking them out of the park. Still missing the signs outside and if you don't pay attention, you will drive right past and that would be your loss. Brewburgers is a new venture in the old Wow Wings spot nestled between the IHOP and Subway at the entrance to the Broadwater neighborhood. It has been remodeled with an open grill and viewing bar. The colors are toned down and updated. There are comfy bar seats, a few tall tables and booths. There are numerous large screen TV's, video game and music.

We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. There is a "promotion" that is unique, "Buy a beer, Get a Burger" Well, the mister did that one better, he ordered a pitcher of his favorite Miller Lite. There were 12 beers on tap as well as cans. I ordered a Franzishaner pint.
Of course we have to have the glamour shot of the Mister and the menu! He needs a shave badly. I digress.
We were happily encouraged to order the Fried Green tomatoes with cajun remoulade to share as we debate our burger choices. The hot crispy tomatoes arrived after a short wait. There was a nice cornmeal batter with good crunch for the tart green tomato. The Cajun remoulade was not short on flavor, but was also not too spicy for the spice shy mister. There were nice bits of capers and onion snap to the dipping sauce.
Please note some nice specials that will be sure to bring in the college student demographic. Everyday, 20 wings and a pitcher of Bud, or Bud Light for $20.00 Plus, Tuesday look to be a bargain hunters dream. Burgers for $2.00 after 6 p.m. Nice deal, Lucille. There are some nice slider choices that sounded great as well as onion rings, curly fries, chips and salsa and chicken tenders to round out the appetizer menu. Wings are offered in a variety of sauces. I want to try the Sweet Thai, please. A number of different salad preparations are listed. Variations include an Asian, Santa Fe, Caesar, Greek, Cobb, Veggie and Texican. The most unusual was the Brewburgers Famous Bacon Cheeseburger salad, now tell me, you want to try that now, don't you? We settled on a couple of the specialty burgers for our entrees. I had the "World Renowned Brewburger" a nice portion of fine Guinness burger topped with sauteed portabella mushrooms, roasted red peppers and pepper jack cheese. Wowser.
It was so good. Moist flavorful. The roasted peppers were a delicious change of pace. But wait for it, my side order of tater tots are SWEET POTATO TOTS! So good, so unexpected and yummy, yummy, yummy. I would just gild the lily of those little orange tots by offering a garlic aoili and a shot of sweet Thai sauce for dipping.
Mister ordered the "Piggy Back Burger". The grown up version of the Guinni pig slider verion as an appetizer. The Piggyback features a burger topped with pulled pork, bourbon bbq sauce and cole slaw. He was in HEAVEN. A mess to eat but oh so delicious.
The Mister was very happy with his juicy medium rare burger and tasty fresh hot onion rings. He would happily eat a burger just like this once a week. I have to say after eating our way through a number of establishments offering "gourmet" and upscale burgers, our money is on Brewburgers. The prices were most reasonable. The burgers were hot, fresh, well cooked and seasoned beautifully. Definitely a wonderful addition to the Pinellas Point are of St. Petersburg. Go visit, say hi to Dan and the staff. It is a fine new place to spend some time with a brew and a burg! Brewburgers on Urbanspoon
