  • Rueben Burger – Angus beef topped with slow cooked corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, lettuce, tomato and onion
  • Tex-Mex Burger – Angus beef topped with jalapenos, salsa, pickles, sautéed onions, avocado, lettuce, tomato and pepper jack cheese

  • Mama Mia Sofia Burger – Angus beef topped with marinara sauce, mozzarella sticks and provolone cheese

“You can get a cheeseburger anywhere these days, but you can only get these gourmet-style burgers from Mara’s,” suggests O'Loughlin, whose creative juices take the Angus beef burgers to another level. “I take pride in my craft and it’s great to see so many customers enjoy the dishes that I created.”
