A great burger isn’t something you would expect from a tapas restaurant, but Elements Tapas Bar & Lounge in Medford delivers just that. Although complex in nature, this burger melds the flavors of Spain into a singularly savory and satisfying experience. The burger itself is a decadent mixture of lamb, Spanish chorizo, fresh thyme and smoked paprika. After it’s grilled, the burger is topped with Manchego cheese, caramelized onions and piquillo pepper aioli, and then served atop perfectly toasted slider buns, made by SunStone Artisan Bakery in Ashland. Elements lovingly serves its sliders with an assortment of house-made condiments: smoked ketchup, whole-grain mustard, seasonal pickles and fried root vegetable chips. Try it with one of the many local brews on tap.

while not a culinary masterpiece with garlic aeoli and butter lettuce, a Clancy Burger in Sherwood is one of the best burgers you can get. Homemade fries and a cold beer on the sunny patio, and you have a Sunday lunch worth remembering. Hubby had the halibut fish and chips, and was delighted by the lightness of the crispy batter. Going back on the recommendation of another diner for steamers. Plain ol good pub food in a quaint little town that's worth the drive.
