On a Friday evening for dinner, my friend Nicole and I were looking to grab a burger and a beer and just catch up. If you’re looking for a burger in Baltimore, many are familiar with Abbey Burger which is constantly being written up as the best burger in Baltimore. And if you want plenty of options, that’s a great spot. But when you’re craving a a great burger, and you don’t feel like building it yourself, Alewife is worth a visit. It’s also one of the many spots in Baltimore that I have a City Dining Card for.
After sitting down and looking over the impressive drink menu, seriously this place is worth a visit for its beer list alone. My friend and I each decided to get the burger. I got it because I know how awesome it is, she probably got it because I hyped it up all day long. The Smoke Burger is 11oz of beef topped with smoked gouda, gruyere, bacon, caramelized onion, and chipotle aioli on a brioche bun. And if that burger isn’t amazing enough on its own, it comes with a side of duck fat fries. This burger is so juicy and packed with delicious smoky flavors. It’s hands down my favorite burger in Baltimore.
If you’re looking for a notable beer list and a great burger, I’d highly recommend Alewife.
