BRGR STOP: 1930 East Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
BRGR STOP is located in the Gateway Shopping Center on Sunrise Blvd. You might pass it if you are not paying attention due to it being located in the back of the strip mall. There is a very relaxed vibe to the place with some great local signage, graffiti on the walls, and a fun vibe.
Inside you will find a mix of long tables with seating and a bar along the back wall with seating. There are a few small tables on the outer edges of the place. One of the cool features is a food truck in the front of the restaurant that serves up all their customized milkshakes. While this is a really neat thing to see, it does take up a lot of space that could have been used to provide more seating, as I feel this area is kind of wasted.
BRGR STOP offers delivery through many of the apps, which is how I order my food, take-out, or you can eat inside.
The Food @ BRGR STOP:
BRGR STOP has a great selection of salads, burgers, and sandwiches. You can choose from grilled wings and artisan melts, hot dogs, and club sandwiches that will make your mouth water.
First up is the grilled chicken caesar salad. I was impressed with the amount of chicken provided. The chicken is perfectly marinated. The salad itself, though, was a lot smaller than expected and seemed more like a side salad serving compared to other restaurants. With the amount of chicken on top, it was enough to fill someone up. I would order it again.
I don’t understand when restaurants destroy a good French fry. The fries that were served with the cheesesteak are the truffle parmesan fries. While in some of the photos, it looks like they serve fresh-cut fries, in reality, they have a coating on them, which ruins them.
The BRGR STOP has a giant soft pretzel that is four times the size of a normal pretzel. There is a nice crust to it and the perfect amount of salt. If you want a great appetizer, then I recommend this one.
The Cheesesteak Project:
Everywhere you look on social media, BRGR STOP is talking about their “Cheesesteak Project.” They make it with duck fat infused prime hand shaved ribeye with oven-roasted caramelized onions on a locally baked sub roll, toasted with black garlic aioli and white American cheese! The sandwich is accompanied by truffle fries. There are a lot of people that think this is the best cheesesteak they have ever had.
While I am not going to go that far, I will say that they do a pretty good job. If you prefer the real authentic Philly Cheesesteaks, then you probably are not going to be a fan of this one. But I would recommend you still try it out. The duck fat adds a slightly different flavor to the meat, one that took me a few bites to get used to. The ribeye is chopped nicely with the oven-roasted onions, and then they add American Cheese. The roll is toasted with garlic aioli to add to the flavor.
