Well, Summer is officially here! That means it’s time for cookouts, backyard barbecue, and of course, burgers! With Summer officially here now, we have partnered with Ocala Main Street for the Downtown Burger Tour. In case you’re unfamiliar, each Friday we will be sitting down at a different location in downtown to experience their burgers. We will speak with the chefs, managers, and more to get the inside scoop on what makes their burgers so unique. Stop two on the Downtown Burger Tour in #OurOcala led us to Brick City Southern Kitchen & Whiskey Bar.
While we’re all familiar with their barbecue, we wanted to get acquainted with their burger, the BBQ Bacon Burger. The name alone got our attention, but the stunning flavor of this burger made us fans for life! Packed with a smoky flavor, a rich and bold BBQ sauce, as well as all the other accouterments one would find on a burger, the BBQ Bacon Burger is something special. We sat down with TJ Nichols, Bar Manager at Brick City Southern Kitchen & Whiskey Bar, who explained what makes their burger so amazing. Sure, the rest of their fare is incredible, but this is all about the burgers!
The BBQ Bacon Burger isn’t your average burger. The culinary creatives at Brick City Southern Kitchen have built something flavorful and hearty. Their burger is crafted from their brisket, which comes directly from the smoker. The meat is ground up and made into a patty, cooked to perfection, and draped in some flavorful toppings. The burger comes topped by freshly grated jack and cheddar cheese, their exceptional Mojo BBQ sauce, and finished off with some bacon. The result is something smoky, savory, flavorful, and filling, to say the least. If you are a fan of BBQ and burgers, then the BBQ Bacon Burger is right up your ally. However, you may want to plan for a much-needed nap afterward!
Brick City Southern Kitchen & Whiskey Bar is a staple of #OurOcala, and with their excellent culinary offerings, they continue to keep us all full and happy. If you haven’t yet experienced the BBQ Bacon Burger, you’re missing out, and it should be added to your must-have list of food downtown.
