Black Tap’s chefs have perfected the art of the hamburger, and our locations have racked up awards from Zagat, Time Out, and many more.
What makes our craft burgers so special? Rather than grilling the burgers like other burger joints, instead we flip them just once on a griddle to keep them juicy. Then we layer on the other fresh ingredients, and place everything on a perfect potato roll. The result is a mouthwatering burger that is tender, juicy, and out of this world awesome.
Our burger menu includes a wide variety of craft inspired and mouth-watering selections to enjoy. You can’t go wrong with a classic, the All-American Burger, a prime burger with American cheese and a dope special sauce.
