No fillers are no-brainers when you’re talking about our signature Gables Burger. That’s because even our humble burger is a reflection of our talented kitchen staff’s commitment to fresh, local and house-made. You may think of us for elevated cuisine options (we hope so!), but know that every dish we create gets the same thought, consideration and culinary expertise poured into it.
Why is our Gables Burger such a hit on our lunch and bar menus? Our chef uses ground chuck, which has the ideal fat ratio to keep the burger nice and juicy (drooling yet?). When you start with a high-quality product like that, the only seasoning needed is salt and pepper.
It goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: The Gables Burger is handmade to order. We recommend you let the chef choose the temperature, but we’re happy to accommodate.
Our creative kitchen team accompanies all that juicy goodness with leveled-up toppings that offer smoky, savory and a hint of herbaceous engulfed in soft, crunchy and creamy textures. Trust us and bite into bacon, onion rings, arugula, white cheddar cheese and house pickles on a brioche bun.
A quick nod to our hand-cut Kennebec Fries. We never take shortcuts and use frozen fries (which goes without saying, but is worthy of note). Although Kennebec is the “it” potato right now, we’ve actually been using it for years, as it’s a superior frying spud. It has less water than other potatoes, which makes it firm and helps it brown like a champ. It’s a slightly larger potato with fewer divots to help our team slice up beautifully uniform fries. Bottom line: The fries will keep you coming back for more, too.
Come see us for lunch Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., or for our bar anytime after lunch or Sunday brunch. (We’re closed on Mondays.)
The Gables at Chadds Ford is nestled in the heart of the historic Brandywine Valley. Our combination of fresh seasonal cuisine, rustic yet elegant charm and enchanting outdoor dining will keep you coming back time and time again. The Gables is also the perfect venue to host your next special event, whether you are planning a wedding, rehearsal dinner, baby shower or corporate event.
