Join us after work for Happy Hour at the new Ranch Beer Garden located in the Ballston Big Buns Courtyard! Big Buns Damn Good Burgers has set up a vintage horse trailer with a kegerator inside and 12 adequately spaced beer garden tables, and is offering delicious brats and sliders along with music and an all-the-time happy hour menu! We can order from the happy hour menu or order take-out from Big Buns regular menu and eat outdoors in the courtyard while sitting apart at a safe distance. Please bring a mask to wear before and after eating. Big Buns is a fun-casual restaurant specializing in damn good burgers, burger bowls, shakes, craft beer and booze.
