No. 31: Burger from Brass Ring Pub

The Ring has been open, run by the same family, since 1986, and it has

served the

perfect bar burger for just about that long. Here's a half

pound of grilled beef, purchased from a neighboring butcher, Nebraska

Meats. The cooks shape the burgers by hand and throw them on a grill

(they're cooked in sight, right behind the bar) heated with lava rocks

that impart a subtle smoky flavor. Then they melt a slice or two of

cheese on the thing, pop it on a thin, just slightly crunchy sesame bun

with a little tomato, onion, and lettuce, and throw it into a red

plastic basket with a mess of crinkly fries. Your burger comes with

a side of baseball on the eight TVs, a game of pool on the tables in

the back, and the greatest hits of Stevie Ray Vaughan on the jukebox.

Not to mention a delicious cast of characters, Yuengling on tap, and

the best fried clam strips and chicken wings in this part of the good

ol' U.S. of A. -- Gail Shepherd
