Burger Watch: Irie on the Square

Irie Burger

More than oysters stirring Oxonians’ souls readers recently decided Irie on the Square has the second best burgers in town. It’s a restaurant primarily known for seafood, including raw oysters. Upon investigation into what makes their burgers so special, it appears it must be the variety.
Irie’s burgers are cooked-to-order over grilled charcoal and come in several setups:

  • BBQ burger – covered in BBQ sauce and topped with slaw
  • Black and blue burger – blackened with Cajun seasoning and covered with blue cheese
  • Jamaican jerk burger – drenched in Jamaican jerk sauce
  • Chili cheese burger – covered with homemade chili, shredded cheddar, and jalapeno
  • Fried green “BLT” burger – fried green tomatoes, applewood bacon, lettuce, and horseradish dip
  • Hawaiian burger – served with grilled pineapple, bacon, BBQ sauce, and pepperjack cheese
  • Inside-out cheese burger – the cheese is cooked inside the burger
  • Mushroom and Swiss burger – sautéed mushrooms and melted Swiss cheese
