Burgabox is the Perfect Grilling Feast for Father’s Day

The enthusiasm for the hamburger cuts through Chuck Sillari’s thick Boston accent like a steak knife through a sirloin.

As one of the co-founders of mini empire, Boston Burger Co., you’d expect nothing less. The Boston native is at the helm of a business that has three locations across Massachusetts, plus nine in the works across the Middle East.

As his burger bounty grew, though, Sillari saw his next opportunity almost by accident. He recalls, “We were in the office one day and one of our employees had a Hello Fresh box delivered. I thought ‘this can’t be real’ – people are getting groceries delivered by FedEx?”

That was in early 2016. He’d spend the next six months developing a way to package and send his famous Boston burgers around the country. That September, BurgaBox was born.

The concept is similar to the general meal-delivery service: place an order online and within 48 hours a bounty of goodness will arrive at your doorstep. You can choose between an interval delivery subscription and a one-time delivery.

That’s just about where the similarities end. Where the major players pride themselves on healthy, sustainable options, BurgaBox is a gluttonous feast.

Prospective buyers can peruse through a number of options with names like “The Hot Mess (bacon, sweet potato fries, jalapeño) and their most popular, “The WTF Burger” (onion ring, pulled pork, pickles). Each box comes with two gigantic burgers and a bevy of sides.

It’s not just a smattering of over-the-top food plopped in a box either. Everything comes from Burgabox’s own kitchen, including their lauded mac and cheese, which is loaded with pulled pork. (Sillari says a new flavor of the side is in development monthly).

People are coming back too.

“We see more than 70% of our buyers return,” Sillari estimates. “Once they’ve tried it, people are referring others or buying boxes as gifts.”

Burgabox is a continually evolving culinary beast. Sillari says they’re working on a new West Coast distribution center, which will make delivery even faster to those on the other side of the country.

Feast on a Whole Alligator at Frontier Chicago’s Whole Animal Experience
Frontier Chicago Whole Animal Experience

Pig roasts, hot roasts, luaus — whatever you call them, they’re a popular shared culinary tradition in cultures around the world. It seems the primal desire for savage, Lord of the Flies-style dining is deeply ingrained in us as humans. But it’s rare to find a full-on pig roast at a gourmet restaurant in the middle of a city; and rarer still to find a restaurant that also offers whole goats, antelope legs, and even entire chicken-stuffed alligators. Such is the case at Chicago’s Frontier, though, where they proudly encourage guests to eat outside their comfort zone.

If you’re looking to really impress two dozen of your closest friends with dinner in the Windy City, sharing a few deep dish pies is hardly the way to go. Frontier Chicago boasts a one-of-a-kind dinner that’s unlike anything you’ll find in almost any American city. The Whole Animal Experience can generously feed up to 25 people. The experience starts by choosing your main course. Entry-level options include farm-raised pig, wild boar, and whole goat (if, at this point you're thinking, "Wild boar is entry-level?" strap in, it's about to get wild).

Want to combine craft beer and travel? These breweries have great ales and more — worth booking a vacation for
Prairie Artisan Ales Brewery

There are also a lot of great outfits, brewing award-winning beers. There are also a few that stand above the rest both in terms of quality and atmosphere. These are the bucket list breweries that every beer fan should visit at least once.

The best part? These gems can be found all over the country. There are Chicago breweries, Asheville breweries, and outstanding, can’t-miss breweries from Petaluma to St. Pete.
