When you think “cheeseburger” I doubt your next thought would be “grilled artichokes” or “martini”. However, when visiting 80z. Burger Bar on Melrose, these elegant choices are right at your fingertips. After a day of boutique shopping or a late night LA bite, 8oz. Burger Bar is equipped with indoor / outdoor seating, including seats at the bar and a few pieces of vintage furniture. A fast paced, sit-down-next-to-you server, will quickly place a red and white striped cloth, with silverware stowed inside, on the table. Why did she forget the menus? Because your place mat is your menu! An array of food on both front and back of your faux menu wakes your stomach up and spreads your lips into a smile. Not your average burger joint , 80z. offers not only burgers and beers but salads and grilled fish! If your favorite menu items are apps and sides then you’ve hit the jackpot!
After a long Sunday at the Fairfax Trading Post, my appetite was huge! We snagged a seat right next to the outdoor patio and within view of the flat screen TVs. While sipping on a vodka martini I hand picked my bbq grilled fish sandwich just the way I liked it. At $1.00 per topping it’s easy to get carried away, especially when there’s fresh avocados and fried green tomatoes to be had! With over 10 different dipping sauces you can dip until your hearts content. Picking aged Gruyere cheese, avocado and a fried caper dipping sauce on a sesame seed bun my bbq fish sandwich was perfect! Having dinner with a meat lover, Stony chose an 8oz. medium burger with chipolte mayo, caramelized onions, cheddar, crisp bacon and tomatoes! Why have french fries when you can have a basket of fried pickles! Pair them with a saucer of dijon-horseradish and every bite explodes with flavor. Truffled potato skins with a roasted tomato dipping sauce is a great choice to split for the table. Not a a fan of carbs? No worries. An artichoke grilled to perfection with a side of garlic aioli is cooked perfectly every time. The best grown up grilled
cheese sandwich in town is at 8oz., the short rib grilled cheese! Sliders and suds, burrata cheese salads and banana splits, you’ll be leaving here feeling quite satisfied.
