|KCMag.com: BURGER WARS WINNER|
STORY BY Kate Brosseau
After savoring five juicy cheeseburgers from five local restaurants for five weeks, Kansas Citians hereby crown the first winner of KC Magazine’s Burger Wars… Martin City Brewing Company.
There’s no question that all tour stops were worthy contenders, but the “We Build This City” burger at MCBC racked in almost double the votes of the second place contestant. As reviews poured in for MCBC’s 7-ounce cheeseburger, phrases like “fantastically delicious” and “obviously amazing” decorated our comment section at KCMag.com.
But it wasn’t just the city’s best burger that made mouths water. Guests continue to rave about Martin City’s extensive beer list, which tops 50 brews, with many from local brewing companies such as Boulevard and Weston. For those awaiting balmy weather, a beer garden will give patrons a chance to enjoy their drafts amidst a sunny afternoon.
With a professional chef at the helm of the kitchen, MCBC sates appetites for a slew of cuisine types. From the shrimp po’boy with a dab of remoulade sauce ($8) to the fried egg and sage sandwich on toasted sourdough ($6), diners will find a signature MCBC twist on just about everything.
Whether it’s the house-made ketchup or the neighborhood feeling patrons get when they sit down in the restored 100-year-old building, this new Martin City mainstay has brewed up something worth the chatter.
