May isn’t just a month for graduations and Mother’s Day, did you know it’s National Burger Month, too? Well the people over at the Lucky Monk Burger, Pizza and Beer Company in South Barrington do and they’re getting ready to serve up one super-sized sandwich.
In celebration of National Burger Month and the premiere of Iron Man 2 this weekend, The Lucky Monk will be offering an indulgent 2-pound “Iron Man” burger. The $20 burger serves four to six people and will be available May 10th through the 13th. Lucky Monk executive chef, Matt McMillin says his giant burger goes best with their home brewed beers.
The Lucky Monk produces eight craft beers on-site. The brewery is visible from the bar area, so you can actually watch brew master Anthony Carollo at work. They have three full time “flagship” flavors. The “Cardinal Sin” is a Czech-style Pilsner, the “Gr’ale” is a Belgian-style Amber and the “Triteca” is a Wheat beer. All of their beers are named wtih the same monastic theme, a nod to the Belgian Trappist monks who perfected the art of craft beer. If you can’t make up your mind, you can always order the Lucky Monk Sampler, an assortment of six 5-ounce pours of its on-site offerings for $8.00.
The Lucky Monk opened last December in the former Brass restaurant space right on Barrington Road where you enter the South Barrington AMC 30 movie theater parking lot.
