Burger Mecca Off-Site Kitchen Makes Triumphant Return at Trinity Groves


Praise the burger gods: Nick Badovinus's Off-Site Kitchen is now open in its new home at Trinity Groves. The first thing you'll notice is just how much more spacious it is, with a soaring ceiling adorned with a battered American flag — and how much cooler, thanks to some seriously bangin' air-conditioning (hallelujah). More wall space means more space for Badovinus's retro tchotchkes, from Farrah Fawcett in a swimsuit and an actual motorcycle to Guns 'n Roses and U2 posters.

The drink cooler now takes up nearly an entire wall, stocked to the brim with beer options from Rahr and Lakewood to mini bottles of High Life and bombers of Mickeys, plus Jarritos, Topo Chico, and glass bottle coke. Also new are frozen cocktails: tangy Moscow mules, margaritas, and bourbon-spiked cherry Coke.

The menu is otherwise the same as it ever was, with fan favorites like the Murph-style burger with jalapeno-bacon relish, the best damn chicken fingers in town, and those perfect seasoned fries. To kill time while waiting for your burger, there's a Galaga/Ms. Pacman arcade game and shuffleboard, plus more games on the back patio. Best of all, OSK is now open for dinner — new hours are 11 a.m to 9 p.m. on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (closed Mondays, as always).
