We're taking Grindhouse's Killer FancyPants Platter and taking it up a few notches on Tuesday nights. Get your fancy stretch pants ready.
Once upon a time (a few years back), in a humble corner of Atlanta’s historic Sweet Auburn Curb Market, Grindhouse started a cult following in simply addictive burgers. Owner Alex Brounstein took this success to create a second location out of a former gas station on Piedmont, complete with the signature Grindhouse feelsubway tiles and cult movies projected on the wallsbut also TABLES! And BOOZEY BOOZE! Perfect for prolongated burger chowing.
The only complaints? While the classic Grindhouse style was hard to beat, some fans longed to see Alex & Co.'s try at more “upscale” burger creations. Thick, 1/2 lb. patties, cooked medium rare if so desired, served on a fancy H&F bun, topped with trendy, gourmet fixings. Fresh, hand-cut fries, too. So finally, Grindhouse answered: “We’ve got your FancyPants burger RIGHT HERE....”
And here we are: the Tuesday Night Special. Grindhouse’s one evening a week to show off their bigger, badder burger skills. Proof in the patty that they can hang with (nay, outdo) the big dogs in a city of full of patty-and-bun fanatics. Each Tuesday evening at the Piedmont location, signature FancyPants creations come accompanied by a heaping handful of those fresh cut fries, and a house made dipping sauce. And if you need to know what flavor of the week you're about to get into, check out that Tuesday's theme posted on Monday on their Facebook page.
Of course, Scoutmob had to come up with something a little extra schmancy. You and your burger-binging companion will start the night with an appetizer of choice, then try your hand (or face) at a flight of three seasonal craft beers: one canned, one bottled, one draft. Bring on the two signature burgers and fries and sauces, but do us a favor and leave room for the hit of the house: their boozy milkshake. Oh, and one more Tuesday night exclusive: A FRIED MOONPIE. (God, we love the South.)
By the end of your meal, you may just end up having to go up a few sizes in those fancy pants you’re wearing. Or at least invest in some elastic ones for next Tuesday's visit.
