Taste: Dining Out: Where We’re Eating: The BRGR Joint

Burgers, tattoos, and pirates come together at this Bryn Mawr eatery.

The BRGR Joint
Main Line
Burgers are the main sell at this tattoothemed, quickserve Bryn Mawr eatery, and indeed, the patties — which come singly or doublestacked, topped with anything from A1 to grilled onions to a fried egg, on a soft Martin’s bun — are greaseless, fresh, and hitthespot good. But it was the spicy/smoky flavors of the chili, which, along with Whiz, is piled on freshly cut fries, that lingered in our memory long after we left. (No wonder Villanova kids are requesting the chili on the burgers and dogs, too.) Insider tip: The stellar sweetpotato and regular fries are cooked up in allergyfriendly canola — not peanut — oil.
1011 West Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr, 484-380-3465.

    I go to Penn and a friend of mine at Nova told me about this place. We went out to the bars on the main line a couple of fridays back and hit this place on the way back to his apartment. For a late night spot, it was really quick, which is great and it was much better than the crappy 3 hour old pizza I usually get. I’ve been back once for lunch and it was still great.

    I love this place, it just opened up a few months back and I’ve been going about once a week. Really cool looking inside and they always have some good music playing. The food is awesome, the chili cheese fries are the best I’ve ever had. and now they deliver…
