Venture Down Abbey Road

Don’t be fooled by the gas-station exterior motif. Beatles-themed Abbey Road has dished out award-winning burgers for more than a decade. The restaurant attracts loyal locals-in-the-know who couldn’t care less that they are dining in a straight-up tavern.

While any number of menu options like overstuffed sandwiches, wraps and even fish & chips will vie for your attention, stay focused on the claim to fame: the hand-pattied ground chuck burgers.

For starters, consider “George,” a 10-ounce behemoth with bacon and American cheese served atop a toasted Kaiser roll. It’s the restaurant’s best-seller. More elaborate specialties list as “Sgt. Pepper” (grilled bell peppers, jalapeños, provolone cheese); “Lucy” (grilled mushrooms, Havarti cheese); “Paul” (blackened and topped with bleu cheese); “John” (American, Havarti, provolone); "Yoko" (barbecue sauce, grilled onions, American); and "Ringo" (grilled mushrooms, onions, American and Havarti).

Burgers are accompanied with fries, pasta salad or standout beer-battered onion rings that are worth the price of admission. Just be sure to ask for extra napkins.

Here’s a bonus tip for no extra charge: half-priced appetizers are available at the eatery’s bar side from 4-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. For that price, you can’t go wrong whether you choose fried pickle chips, house-made hummus and pita chips or jalapeño poppers.

Abbey Road is open for lunch and dinner daily from 11 a.m. until later than you stay up.

  1. Dave, burgers are one of my favorites things to eat. Maybe you can introduce me to Abbey Road personally the next time we are in town!
