With new locations continuing to pop up across the globe, Hamburger Mary’s is becoming a trendy place to "Eat, Drink and be Merry," for fairly cheap. Its selection of food ranges from burgers and sandwiches, to salads and pizza – all under $11.95.
Best known for its burgers, Hamburger Mary’s has 12 different selections and are available in beef, chicken, turkey or veggie patties. Those in the mood for something bit more simple, like an appetizer, rather than a full meal will get a kick out of the cleverly titled treats. Mary’s strip-hers, Macho Mary Nachos or Mary’s hot Legs are just a few of them (You figure out what food their talking about).
Yes, the food is good, but it’s when the sun sets and the kitchen closes that the fun really begins. The bar starts hopping, drag queens run rampant and each night of the week, there’s a different theme of fun.
Monday nights feature piano sing-alongs and cabaret karaoke, and like most night’s here, dressing up in encouraged. Tuesdays are reserved for drag shows and tacos. For $5.95 -$6.95 you get all you can eat beef or chicken tacos and for $5, are the Texas-sized margaritas.
Wednesdays are one of the more popular nights of the week, with its charity celebrity bingo. Each week the profits go to a different charity. Bingo isn’t just for senior citizens anymore. Come dressed up as your favorite celebrity or run into the real thing. Rumor has it, that celebrities frequent Hamburger Mary’s as well.
On Thurdays it’s your opportunity to be the star of the show. Come sing, be a comedian, or show off your best drag number. People will vote, and winners will take home $50. If mornings are more your thing, you can’t go wrong with $3 bloody mary’s and $1 mimosas and Saturdays and Sundays with its weekend brunch.
What ever your fancy is, whether it’s a juicy burger and a coke or a margarita and a man dressed as a woman, it’s hard not to feel right at home here. Hamburger Mary’s is a pleasurable time in a comfortable environment that’s packed with entertainment and a guaranteed good time.
