What to get: Mexicali BBQ Burger

Price: $10

Anna’s take: This burger is a behemoth. When I expressed my concern how to consume it, my best friend wryly said, “If you make a mess, you must be doing it right.” The Mexicali BBQ Burger is a stack of pickled jalapenos, white queso, crunchy fried onions, house chipotle BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato and guacamole on top of a beef burger. You can also opt for vegetarian options or chicken, but I went all out. It comes with a side of thick-cut steak fries. 

Suggested pairings: I paired my burger with a Johnny Chapman cider, but Bru Burger Bar has plenty of craft beer options to choose from.
