Conveniently located in downtown Kennesaw, BurgerFi is a small eclectic restaurant offering counter service as well as an outside rooftop area. Their menu ranges from veggi burgers to beef burgers, as well as hot dogs, sides, desserts and alcoholic beverages. The onion rings are huge! I ordered the small fry order of fries, and it would have been sufficient for a family of 4! Don’t want bread? You can have your burger wrapped in lettuce.

Once you have placed your order, enjoy the roasted peanuts while you wait for it to be ready. Their burgers include a variety of topping choices including peppers, grilled onions and mushrooms. If you want something other than a burger, you can also choose from a variety of hot dogs and specialty sandwiches, including grilled cheese. I am always amazed at the size of their side of order of fries, which I think is enough to feed an entire family (unless you really like a lot of fries)!

Stockyard Burgers

Offering an eclectic menu of burgers from traditional beef burgers to pork, veggie and tuna burgers, with unique names and toppings. I found it very difficult to find a “plain” burger – even the Plain Jane had toppings and sauces. But after checking with the server, I learned that the Plain Jane was indeed their “plain” burger and could be ordered without the fancy toppings. When it arrived, I liked it! And since it was my friend’s birthday, we shared a peach/apple cobbler! Located just off Marietta Square, the building offers an eclectic atmosphere as well. You can enjoy your burger with a variety of beverages including alcoholic beverages such as bourbons, and more.

Coffee Shops Around West Cobb

Did you know that March is National Caffeine Awareness Month? As we venture out to commute downtown or just a quick drive around town, many times we feel the need to stop for a quick caffeine jolt. Why would coffee shops around West Cobb be important to residents? Well, interestingly enough, besides the perk of having a coffee shop nearby, studies have shown that there may be a connection between coffee shops and residential real estate home values.

Often dubbed the “Starbucks Effect” these studies have shown that the proximity to a local coffee shop has a very real, and positive, effect on home values. And while the study attributes increased home values to homes near a Starbucks, the same is true for Dunkin Donuts and local coffee shops.

Curious about YOUR home’s value?

But while we all probably have coffee pots in our homes, we seem to faithfully support the local coffee shop as well. Whether it serves as our “satellite office” or social meeting spot, we seem to favor coffee shops. Studies have also shown that coffee aroma relieves stress, which may be why they are our choice for meeting spots.

I guess that is why we have an entire month to celebrate Caffeine Awareness. When did this dedication to coffee start? Remember the infamous Boston Tea Party? Our departure from England and its tea opened the door to coffee becoming our beverage of choice and was viewed by some as a patriotic responsibility. Prohibition created the next coffee explosion with an alternative to alcohol. The 1950s workplace created “coffee breaks” and our love for the beverage has continued to grow and expand with flavors and recipes. Dunkin Donuts entered the market in 1950 and it’s hard to believe that Starbucks opened their first coffee shop in 1971 in Seattle. What’s next for the coffee industry? You can ponder that question while enjoying a cup of coffee at one of the local coffee shops around West Cobb.
