A chain like Moxie’s Classic Grill has survived the years because it remains consistent. You know you’re going to get decent food and agreeable service. So it was a pleasant surprise to discover that Moxie’s makes one of the best burgers I’ve had in a long time.
The juicy veal patty is topped with crispy pancetta for a delicious twist on an old standard. The toasted kaiser bun holds everything in just so. Served with aged white cheddar, lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion and sweet pepper aioli, it’s also a steal for just $14.
We were also happy with an avocado spring roll ($10) starter that successfully merges soft avocado with cilantro, sundried tomatoes and lime juice in a crispy pastry.
A Philly cheese steak ($11) was nicely done with melted peppered havarti and banana peppers giving it some flash.
Moxie’s diverse lunch menu of pastas, sandwiches and salads will have something for everyone — especially burger lovers.
