Titus, who you should follow on Instagram under ChiBBQKing, and I agree to meet for dinner at Gahanna Grill. I was in Ohio for book signings for All About the Burger at Kewpee Hamburgers and White Castle.
Marcela and I spent most of the day driving around and hitting antique shops looking for Burger Museum-worthy items. We had stopped in for lunch at Swensons Drive-In, which we thoroughly enjoyed, so she sat out this one.
Gahanna Grill Menu
I arrived a little early like usual, and I was mid-cold brewski when Sir Titus got to the Gahanna Grill. The signature burger is the “Beanie” Burger.
This fella is a 1/2 lb. bacon cheeseburger topped with sautéed onions & Beanie’s homemade slaw. There is also a Double “Beanie” Burger for those with incredible metabolisms.
We both ordered the original. But this guy is right up your alley if you’re into the steakhouse or Irish pub big beefy burgers.
However, the slaw makes it stand out amongst its burger peers. I’m more of a slaw on my dog’s kinda guy, though.
There’s an Academy Burger (named after Columbus Academy) on the menu with Swiss cheese, bacon, and grilled onions, which sounds good for all the anti-slaw peeps.
Are you still stuck in the Man v. Food 2009 era? Then, conquering the Gahanna Grill’s Beanie Burger Challenge will score you a souvenir t-shirt and placement in their Hall of Fame.
Me? I’ll stick with the original “Beanie” Burger and live to be hungry again in a few hours.
