Starting today, Tuesday, July 1st, and continuing throughout the summer, REX 1516 will be hosting a Guest Chef Burger Series. Each week, the restaurant will bring a new burger to the menu. REX will supply the buns, burgers, sides and booze, while the guest chefs will put together a burger using their own toppings and creating an original ‘pun.’


Today's burger comes from Kris Serviss, who is not only the chef of the upcoming Blue Duck Sandwich Company, but also the people's choice winner at Burger Brawl.

  • July 1st: Kris Serviss of Blue Duck Sandwich Co.

  • July 15th: Sam Jacobson of Southwark
  • July 22nd: Lucio Palazzo of La Calaca Feliz
