Pushing a farm-to-table mission with locally sourced foods and a refined selection of whiskey, bourbon and Scotch, Whiskey Wednesday at Norfolk’s 80/20 Burger Bar is fit for foodies craving juicy burgers and drinkers looking to expand their palate in the world of whiskey. Featuring 27 domestic and 24 international spirits at 25 percent off until 9 p.m., Whiskey Wednesday allows you to try sips of different spirits while also enjoying a gourmet burger at an affordable price.
We started off the evening by choosing Virginia’s own Copper Fox Single Malt, served in an old fashioned glass on the rocks. The rich amber whiskey has hints of honey and dry chutney with a smooth finish. If you’re looking for an introduction to Scotch, have a try of the sweet and easy Monkey Shoulder Scotch blend, which gives you a better idea of the different flavors and styles of whiskeys.
In the kitchen, 80/20 takes great pride in making everything from scratch and offering more than your standard cheeseburger fare. Serving environmentally friendly and locally sourced, grass-fed and hormone-free beef, the quality of ingredients shows in the taste of their burgers.
As a main course, the Alamo Burger topped with bacon, fried onions and cheddar cheese smothered in house-made barbecue sauce lives up to its reputation as a bestselling burger on the menu. For sides, 80/20 has a variety of hand-cut fries, ranging from hot and spicy to crispy and savory. Enjoy dipping them in their aioli or their tangy and smoked Dirty South Fresno sauce.
Whether you’re looking to expand your knowledge in whiskey or simply looking for a fun night out with good eats, Whiskey Night on Wednesdays at 80/20 has you covered with their selection of spirits and burgers.
