You can now grab a burger, or other Burger & Beer Joint menu items, before or after you catch a movie at Frank Theatres at Delray Beach Marketplace.
B&B Franchise Group, parent company of Burger & Beer Joint, now has a joint venture partnership with Jupiter-based Frank Entertainment. The collaboration will feature the popular restaurant concept in some of the entertainment company’s Frank Theatres, Cinebowl and Revolutions brands.
“When exceptional proven concepts align, success is destined to happen,” said Bruce Frank, CEO of Frank Theatres. “We are confident this new partnership will deliver an unprecedented entertainment experience for our guests.”
Burger & Beer Joint will maintain its current branding, but will expand its menu.
“We are thrilled to partner with Frank Entertainment on venues that offer so much to the consumer,” said Bill Herman, President of B&B Franchise Group. “In essence, it’s a unique and exciting one-stop shop for restaurants, bars, movie theatres and bowling under one roof; a complete entertainment complex.”
We checked out the West Delray location where we, and several other media members, were treated to several appetizers and burgers, which are based after different rock and roll hits in line with the restaurants rock and roll theme.
First, we sampled ahi tuna tacos, which provided the perfect amount of zing with its chili-garlic aioli, jalapeño salsa, cilantro and guacamole inside a won ton shell. We also sampled the baked mac and cheese named the Mac Daddy Cheese Gratin. It was filled with three cheese, topped with crispy breadcrumbs and more cheese.
Then, it was time for the main attraction, the burgers.
We got to sample several of the burgers, including the “Dr. Feelgood,” a veggie burger that featured toasted rainbow quinoa, smoked cumin beans, roasted red peppers and oats. It was topped with a roasted red pepper and corn salsa, manchego cheese, a basil-mint pesto on a brioche bun. The veggie burger was more of a knife and fork style burger with its thick patty. It was served up with zucchini fries.
For chicken lovers, we got to try the chicken burger “Hey Jude.” It came with a thick slice of applewood smoked bacon, havarti cheese, avocado and honey mustard on a whole wheat bun with a side of sweet potato fries. The chicken was hefty and juicy.
For a meat burger, we tasted the Mustang Sally, a wagyu beef burger with a red onion marmalade, brie cheese and prosciutto on a brioche bun served with skinny fries. The burger was cooked to a perfect medium rare and the prosciutto was sliced thinly and added a sweetness that paired with the marmalade.
Finally, we got to see the main event. The serving of the “Mother Burger!” a “ginormous bear the size of a manhole cover, sandwiched in a bun that resembles a couch cushion!”
If you finish the burger, which starts at $150, within two hours, the 10 pounds of beef is free.
Even if you can’t finish the challenge, the presentation is an experience. Servers parade the burger out while clanking pots and pans. The burger is then cut into heaping servings with a saw.
