Brewery Spotlight: Green Room Burgers and Beer


Some of the best burgers and beer in Kansas City

When you think about burgers in Kansas City, you probably think Westport. The midtown district is renowned for its food, drink and nightlife. But if you’re not in the know, you’re probably missing out on the best burger in town. No, not that famous place with the swap meet. I’m talking about Green Room Burgers and Beer.

What? Are you serious? You’re probably thinking. Well put down your pitchforks and torches. If you’ve been to Green Room, you know what I’m saying is true. If you haven’t, you’re missing out. Green Room has some of the best burgers not just in Westport, but in the entire metro area.

Start with the Forty-Ten, a masterpiece of the hamburgerial arts with two patties, avocado, bacon, grilled jalapeños, American cheese and Dijon mustard. It’s a true burger-lover’s burger.

If you’re stumbling in seeking sustenance after a long night of drinking, the Breakfast Burger is the perfect hangover remedy. Double patties topped with bacon, American cheese, grilled jalapeños and a fried egg will knock that ill feeling right out. Pro Tip: The cysteine in egg yolks helps mop up the toxins leftover from a long night of drinking.

If you’re not the meat-eating type, or just want something a little healthier, try out the Imperial Green Burger. With a house-made veggie burger topped with avocado, Dijon mustard, goat cheese, grilled onions and greens, it’s not just a delicious meat-alternative – it may be the very best veggie burger in the entire world. Seriously. Even dedicated carnivores will love this one.

And it’s not just the burgers that are delicious. The beers are on point too. With a selection of popular favorites and great house brews, there’s something for every taste. Personally, I tend to stick with their IPAs, which never fail to impress. Sufficiently hoppy, with good bitterness and balance, it goes perfectly with an order of Farmer Fries, Green Room’s signature diner fries topped with balsamic grilled onions, mushrooms, peppers, shredded cheddar and an egg. Don’t forget your napkin.

Whatever you choose, burgers, brews, or anything else, you’re gonna love it. Just make sure to tell them Beer Paws sent ya.
