Mr. B’s north of Wiesbaden has burgers that are worth the drive

Drop what you are doing, look at your calendar and plan a trip to a small town called Wetzlar, about an hour north of Wiesbaden.
Your destination: Mr. B’s American burger joint.
It is as simple as that, and you will not be disappointed.
Mr. B’s is an American-owned-and-operated burger joint and bar, small enough for a fun dinner but big enough to take a group of friends to enjoy a tasty burger and an adult beverage.
Mr. B’s offers eight burgers in total on their menu, and each one is as unique as the next. From the mango habanero burger to the Greek burger, each has a handmade beef patty that tastes like it was made fresh and brought straight to the grill.
The mango habanero burger is a must-try. The spiciness from Mr. B’s special mango-habanero sauce balances the fresh veggies and bacon. The flavor is consistent and delicious throughout.
The Greek burger sounds like a weird idea, but is a welcome explosion of tastes and flavor. Fresh tzatziki, feta cheese, arugula and bacon all mix together in each bite to bring you a mix of gyro and burger flavors.
If you’re still hungry, I recommend the mac and cheese bites or the pickle chips. Both come with several dipping sauce choices that pair well with a mix of German and American flavors.
Also, with your burger, you can choose either regular fries or sweet potato fries.
Mr. B’s also offers vegetarian options, which include a mac and cheese patty and a black bean patty.
The drink list is much longer than the food list, with choices ranging from lemonade to craft beers from around the world, frozen drinks, cappucinos and soft drinks.
Mr. B’s prices are also worth the trip. Burgers cost from 6 euros (about $7) to around 11.50 euros. Add an extra euro if you want sweet potato fries.
Drinks cost between 2 euros and 6 euros.
