It’s just about as all-American as food gets – the supremely versatile, undeniably craveable, across-the-board delicious burger. And when you get a hankering for one in the East Stroudsburg area, you want one of the best. No drive-thru fare can compare with some of the burger purveyors in the area. Below, we’ll sample a few favorites where you can satisfy your desire for this iconic food staple.
Sarah Street Grill
Located in the heart of the Poconos, at 550 Quaker Alley in downtown Stroudsburg, Sarah Street Grill is a hot spot for good times, live music, and fantastic food. Anchoring the menu of pub fare and delicious sushi (yes, sushi) is a burger worthy of a special trip just to try it. It’s even billed on the menu as the “Best Burger in Town.” But whether that’s true or not is up to you to decide. The options are impressive indeed, ranging from the Basic Burger to the Louisiana (with hot sauce and chipotle mayo), the Tex Mex (with salsa, guacamole, and red onion), the Bacon & Blue, and the Reuben. Non-meat-eaters can sub a veggie patty for the beef in any of the tantalizing variations.
Innovative food in a vibrant, energetic atmosphere is what you’ll find at Garlic Steakhouse, located at 907 Main Street in downtown Stroudsburg. The menu boasts inventive spins on traditional American dishes. Which means, of course, that they offer a killer burger. Thick, juicy, and perfectly seasoned, their list of burgers may be short – there are two – but this is a case where two are more than enough! Try the Deluxe, with fresh classic toppings and your choice of cheese, or indulge a bit with the Main Street, which is tastefully topped with pepper Jack cheese, fried onions, candied bacon, and Cajun ranch.
