The Good: You'll find parking, decent burger
The Bad: Small selection of ordinary craft beer

If you go here for a burger and fries, you've made a decent choice. The food is a notch better than average, the kitchen willing to make subs, and the sides pretty good. If you go here for the beer, you've made a horrible mistake. Six to eight drafts with nothing unusual (kudos for having two locals, though). A much better choice is just around the corner at Grape and Grain. In comparing the two place you will quickly see that for Rave, the beer selection and quality takes a back seat. So if you must have a burger, eat here, but save your beer calories for somewhere else.

Would I come back. Not a bad place, but probably not.

beer selection was eh here. i was actually more blown away by their burgers. they have some ridic burgers like THE MEGA and the jerked chicken burger that were pretty delicious. my friend referred me to their menu (www.raveburger.com). still need to try out their signature rave burger but the jerked chicken burger was definitely one of the best burgers i've had in a long time.

A burger joint that serves Delirium!

Rave Burger makes very good burgers and recently got serious about serving a selection of excellent brews. They have a fine domestic tap selection and the bottled beers include such notables ad Delirium Tremens, Brother Thelonious, Chimay, etc.

So, enjoy a fine burger and pair it with a Belgian, IPA, PA, Pilsner, or stout. The selection isn't huge, but it is well thought out - something for everyone.

This is a family friendly place, which makes it the go-to place on a weeknight. The kids get their french fries and I get my Delirium
