PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — DBG has $700 burgers and under $3 burgers
DBG is the newest burger bar in town.
Formerly known as the Drury Beer Garden, the space has been reimagined as a burger space with a new cocktail menu that creates a relaxed atmosphere.
The beer garden atmosphere is still alive with a nice back patio for dining.
Menu highlights include the gold standard, a $700 burger with A5 Wagyu beef, caviar, truffles and lobster in Louis XIII cognac.
The burger is topped with one ounce of Louis XIII pour and served with fries dressed with Manuka honey. It’s a great experience for extreme burger lovers.
On the other side of the menu is the $2.95 burger they serve during happy hour.
Part of the fun is offering guests high and low extremes, but they also have a menu with choices in between, including the classic El Diablo, a vegan version, and a lamb burger.

Cambridge Pavers has been transforming yards into oases since 1984
Cambridge Pavers is introducing new colors, textures and shapes this season, as well as a first-of-its-kind backyard feature and a combination oven and pizza oven that owner and CEO Charles Gomarekian says can make a pizza in less than 60 seconds .
Gomarekian founded Cambridge Pavers on the promise of concrete, solid design that can last a lifetime.
ArmorTec technology is the secret of its strength.
Gamarekian says the company saw a huge increase in business during the pandemic when people couldn’t travel, and he says the trend has continued as homeowners want to give their homes a vacation feel.
He says that creating an outdoor room adds 15-20% to the value of a home.
Features such as pavilions and fire pits make this a year-round outdoor space that is an extension of the indoor space.
They have installations for large yards and small patios, and Gamarekian says you can build in stages depending on your budget, creating a space year after year that will be your perfect escape.
