Burnsy’s Burgers and Brew, located at 2451 Woodville Rd. in Oregon, is part family-friendly eatery, part raucous sports bar, and part neighborhood hangout.
Since opening in February, Burnsy’s quickly became popular for its food as well as being known for its hospitality to sports fans with its 10 50-inch plasma TV’s.
“We have been pretty busy since we opened,” said Sandy Burns, general manager. “It has been busy since the beginning. The weekends are very busy. We have a nice crowd on Saturday, especially during Ohio State games. We are definitely a Buckeye bar.”
Located in the former Tom’s Restaurant, Burnsy’s is a full-service restaurant and bar.
“The restaurant and bar are very clean with a great atmosphere,” Burns said. “We are locally owned and we have great homemade food. We are very family-friendly and we have a game room with video games, darts, pool table, etc. for kids and adults.”
Burns added that the game room can also be reserved, free of charge, for small gatherings.
On the menu, Burnsy’s offers a variety of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees for every appetite.
Appetizers run the gamut from steak bits, jalapeno poppers, nachos, potato skins, hand-dipped mushrooms and onion rings to chili cheese fries.
The munchies menu also includes their soon-to-be famous Burnsy’s Bites - boneless chicken chunks that can be smothered in your choice of sauce (BBQ, garlic butter, zesty, sweet heat and “afterburner”). The sauced bites can also be topped with mushrooms and cheddar, slaw and cheddar, or go whole hog with bacon, onion, mushroom and cheddar.
Interesting tidbits like fried pickles, fried mac ‘n cheese wedges and potato pancakes with applesauce are also available on the appetizer menu.
For lighter appetites, Burnsy’s has four different salads and homemade soups. The soups, which are made from scratch, include chili and French onion, both offered daily. The soup of the day could include potato, vegetable, country mushroom, Italian wedding or clam chowder, to name a few.
Six different half-pound burgers as well as a very large variety of sandwiches can also be found on the expansive menu.
“At lunch, the soups and salads as well as the chicken finger basket are all very popular,” Burns said. “We sell a lot of burgers and our barbecued ribs and wings are also very popular. We have a hand-breaded perch sandwich and a pot roast sandwich that both sell very well also. We have very few frozen items here. Most of our food is done in-house.”
Full dinner entrees include ribs, steaks, perch, shrimp, pot roast and rotisserie chicken. Popular desserts include deep fried cheesecake, and both pumpkin and apple pie.
