The Bavarian Burger
Shari’s, a family-dining chain known for its homestyle menu, features a variety of burgers and sandwiches for lunch and dinner. This item jumps on the pretzel-bun trend, generously stuffing it with a beef burger, pastrami, Swiss cheese and pickle slices. At service, Chef Bechtel suggests offsetting the top of the bun so the burger “is smiling at you,” showing off its ingredients.
