Double Barrel Tavern has the wooden guts and brass trimmings of a wild old bar, the sort of place The Right Stuff's desert flyboys would have tipped neat bourbon from thick-bottomed shots while women with Liberty curls waited semi-indifferently for them to die.

It is conveniently located on Division street, across from the Seven Corners New Seasons.

But enough about rough-shod bars and big-hearted neighborhood grocers. Here is the Double Barrel's Single Barrel burger, only $5 during our Burger Week blowout:

The $5 Double Barrel burger. Sidewinder fries and a frosty pound of beer not included.

  • The $5 Double Barrel burger. Sidewinder fries and a frosty pound of beer not included.

That's 1/3-lb of nicely-charred Painted Hills ground chuck, American cheese (unapologetically so), tender butter lettuce, bright and witty house-made pickles, a lovingly-griddled white bun, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. This is a backyard picnic burger of the old school and it needs no dinkering around with. Try it with $2 sidewinder fries or onion rings, then stay for shuffleboard, some of the finest back patio cigarette smoking in the city, and the vibe of a bar that knows how to say "fuck you" to drinks that have basil in them.
