Buckley’s Tavern, Wilmington: Buckley Burger


Some things never change, which means even at the latest—and best—iteration of the popular tavern, The Buckley Burger remains the most popular dish on the menu, says chef-owner Tom Hannum. Eight ounces of certified Angus beef are grilled to your liking, topped with good cheddar and applewood-smoked bacon, then served on a fresh brioche. Handcut fries finish the plate. Start with another favorite: Hannum’s mushroom soup, a purée of button mushrooms, portobellos, crimini and shiitakes in a vegetable stock with a touch of cream. Not too rich, not too light—just right. 5812 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, 656-9776, buckleystavern.com
