Dinner at Abbey Burger Mt. Washington

Abbey Burger Mt. Washington

For early 2022, I’m scheduling a few meetups at the restaurants that were the most popular with this group in 2021. Next up: Abbey Burger!

Abbey Burger Mt. Washington has some of the best burgers in the city. Choose from concoctions like cheeseburger eggrolls, the Baltimore Burger (crab dip on a burger, anyone?), the Spicy Korean Duck Burger, or a good old fashioned classic with your choice of toppings. They even have a burger topped with peanut butter. For the vegetarians, try the fried green tomato burger or the veggie burger.

Make sure you come to the Mt. Washington location, NOT the one in Fells.

Our Meetups are all about supporting the best of the area's local restaurants while enjoying great conversation and amazing food on a budget ($25 or less).
