Bikers and Burgers: The Kitchen at Branding Iron North Is Open

Posted By on Thu, Mar 3, 2011 at 4:00 PM


The best way to enjoy a burger at Branding Iron North is to sit facing the big screen television tuned to the remake of the Dukes of Hazzard, which might make you glad you had your cable turned off years ago. The sound will be turned off, and Guns N’ Roses music will be everywhere, and there will be a decent number of people knocking back beers in the early afternoon.

It's a great backdrop for a late lunch, with motorcycles chortling up outside and people in leather vests slapping each other on the backs. Unless you go out of your way to make small talk, they will leave you and your burger to your business. Bikers respect a lone wolf, even if he’s sort of scrawny and obviously out of his element.

The dry-erase board says burgers, chicken strips, super fries and a few other things can be had for about $5 each. The guy in the kitchen said he opened Tuesday and that the hours are about 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.

Branding Iron North is located at 2660 W. Ruthrauff Road. Bon appetit.
