Wiley’s Turkey Burger with Avocado Slaw - lunch burger ($12.95) 

"I have been bragging about my turkey burger to the whole world. I think it’s the best, juiciest, most tender turkey burger ever made. Now it is time to put my money where my mouth is. Superior-quality Bowman Landis ground turkey makes a great burger, here moistened with white wine, seasoned with a little toasted chile powder and topped with an avocado slaw that is as much avocado as it is slaw, if not more so. Whether it’s the best turkey burger ever is up to you. Served on a soft DLM golden hamburger bun with your choice of vinaigrette-dressed greens, fries, or for a dollar more, make it garlic frites"

Cowboy Burger - lunch burger ($14.95) 

"Was it folks walking in with bandanas on their faces that made us think of cowboys? A 6 oz. local bison patty is crusted on the griddle with a tangle of fried onions, a swipe of bourbon BBQ sauce, and a coating of melted gouda cheese studded with pickled jalapenos. Yeehaw! Served on a soft DLM golden hamburger bun with your choice of vinaigrette-dressed greens, fries, or for a dollar more, make it garlic frites."

Route 66 Diner Burger - dinner burger ($14.95) 

"Let’s go back in time, before fast food chains covered the country. Lay an old-school jumbo sesame seed bun on the flat top. Take a freshly-ground beef patty and season it with good old salt and pepper, then give it a swath of ballpark mustard. When that mustard hits the grill and cooks into the meat, it forms a crust. When the burger’s nearly done, drape it in American cheese, let it get melty, then transfer to the warm bun and top with thin dill pickle slices and iceberg lettuce. Take a bite and fly away in your own personal time machine. Served with your choice of vinaigrette-dressed greens, fries, or for a dollar more, make it garlic frites."
