Brakeman’s Burgers, Brews and Shakes, 10 S. Sierra Madre St., opened softly Oct. 3. It’s the first of three eateries to claim the space in The Old Depot. Greg Champagne is the executive chef for the burger operation and will also oversee the next eatery to open, which will be Sandwich Depot.
The Brakeman’s menu is heavy on craft burgers, which are all priced at ($14) each, with the option of substituting a turkey burger or Impossible burger. For another $7, you can upgrade the burger patty with a Colorado wagyu beef patty. All burgers come with cardamom dill pickle and exceptionally delicious fries. Offerings also include nachos, sliders, pizzas, salads and shakes, which can come as an adult drink with the addition of booze.
The fun, family-friendly eatery is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 11 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Details: 375-8769, brakemansburgers.com.
