Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, Clearfield PA

From time to time, in my travels, I will write a few restaurant reviews of places that I have been and liked.    The first review is Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield PA.

The location is convenient, only 4 miles off exit 120 on I-80 in Pennsylvania.  A friend of mine had seen this place on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and highly recommended stopping by.

As you can see they have a long list of burger challenges.  Everything from a 2 lb up to a 125 lb burger that they recommend for weddings and big groups.

The menu is just not restricted to burgers though.  There is a wide variety of seafood, salads, Mexican, and appetizers.  They also have a decent beer selection, both tap and bottle.  But, let get back to the burgers...

My wife had a Kobe burger that she built herself:  1/2 Kobe beef, LTO, mayo, ketchup.  All on a toasted kaiser roll.  Two thumbs up from her.

I had the Bacon Cheeseburger to use as a baseline...

1/2 lb patty served with LTO, American cheese above and below the patty, 3 strips of bacon, and a side of fries.  The burger rocked.  The fries were slightly above average:  not as hot has I would have liked and a bit oily.  My wife's Beer Batter Fries were better.  I will have those next time.

There is one whole page of specialty burgers:  pastrami, egg and cheese, Italian, French Dip, etc...  Or, you can build your own.  One thing to remember, they cook them well, so you have to request anything  medium or less.

The people next to us also did a 2 lb Pub Challenger.  Here are some pics...

That is a big burger.  1 hour to finish and it is free.  They also give you a t-shirt, take your picture, and put your name and time on the Wall of Fame.

After scanning the 3 lb Challenges, I saw someone who dusted one of those in 9 minutes, 7 seconds.  How do you do that?

Overall, this is a great place.  We will definitely stop when we are passing through.

Rating, 3.5 out of 4 stars...
