If you’re anything like us, it will be love at first bite with this monster of a Reuben from O’Rorke’s Family Eatery & Spirits. Thickly stacked between two pieces of rye you’ll find corned beef, swiss cheese, thousand island dressing and sauerkraut. And don’t forget to leave room for their delicious kettle cooked chips!

Chez Cheri Café puts a bit of a twist on their 8 oz. Beef Burger. Choose to have yours grilled in EVOO, BBQ sauce, peanut sauce or Asian sauce. Piled high on top of the juicy burger is lettuce, red bell pepper, raw onions and grilled onions. Not only does it make for a beautiful presentation, but it adds amazing flavor to every bite! To make it even better, Chez Cheri uses Non-GMO, 95% lean beef.
