At Burger & Beer Joint, the Wagyu beef sliders (three of them) on mini brioche buns served with lettuce, tomato and chipotle ketchup for $12.99 make a great lunch or light dinner, especially when paired with a metal bucket of salty-slick duck-fat fries ($5.99). This UTC mall chain restaurant exudes modern motor-city grunge in a stylish, playful way. B&B is a family-friendly sports bar with a touch of Hell’s Angels attitude. With a dozen wall-mounted TV screens, high-tops, tables and booths, the ambiance is a backdrop for a celebration of the American burger, including a 10-pound Black Angus one the size of a manhole cover for $125. My advice: Start small with the sliders and work your way up. Burger & Beer Joint, 160 University Town Center Drive, Sarasota, (941) 702-9915.
