Grilled food and growlers of beer, what’s not to like?
The Hongos burger ($10.95) is towering with two quarter-pound Angus patties wedged between a butter-rich brioche bun. The beef patties, cooked medium-well as requested, were juicy with a crispy, blackened exterior. Condiments include mushrooms, caramelized onion, an earthy truffle sauce and house-made pickles.
Any mention of Boka and I immediately think taco, please note the correct spelling of taco, but Boka Grill & Growlers is definitely not just a taco joint. The name let’s you know that there a wide variety of options beyond the ubiquitous and holy taco.
I poked my head in on the week that they opened and was a little disappointed in the atmosphere. In my heart I was hoping for a version of their Fan spot (Boka Taco Bar, 304 N Robinson St) and the ability to sit at a bar while debating my growler and stomach fills. This is not that place but it certainly doesn’t mean it’s not good at it what it does which is over another unique food and beer option to those in the neighborhood.
