What can I say, I like Bourbon and I like burgers. In that order. Most of the reviews I read about Mr. Biggs said the food was good, the service not so good. That was not the case when Em and I went there, the food was good, the server was friendly, knowledgeable, quick and got our orders right.
Their selection of scotch was limited, although the server said that normally they had more. However they didn’t have the brand Em usually drinks so we both got Maker’s Mark. For appetizer we got chips with a Parmesan-spinach dip with a dollop of tomato relish. Em got a burger called ‘Juicy-juice’ (it has cheese inside the burger and should come with a warning label: Melted cheese will squirt out of this burger when you bite into it) and I got a turkey burger. Both burgers came with seasoned potato wedges which were good and a mesculin salad, which I didn’t eat because it had dressing on it.
The people next to us got the wings and they were huge! The food came out quickly, was hot and good. Our server kept her eye on us and our water glasses. We had a Groupon and before we ordered she made sure to explain how it worked. Em said her burger was medium not rare. That was the only complaint I can think of. There is a happy hour on Friday and drinks and bar food (not completely sure about that might want to check first) are half price.
We got there a little bit after 12:00 and only a few tables were filled. As we were finishing up people were coming in, a few seemed to be regulars. There are T.V.’s behind the bar, when we were there college football was on so I imagine they show most sports. It seems that it would be a really crazy hopping place on Friday nights! One last thing, the website has not been updated in a while, the appetizer and the burger Em got are not on the online menu.
2 drinks (top shelf, not house liquor), 1 appetizer and 2 burgers cost us between $40-$50
