Animales Barbeque Co.

Following a hugely successful Halloween burgerfest, chef/owner Jon Wipfli will be repeating that affectionate ode to burger icons — no trademarked names, please — for two days: Nov. 30 (2 to 9 p.m.) and Dec. 1 (noon to 4 p.m.). “I’ve ordered a thousand burger patties, and we’ll see what happens,” he said with a laugh. “I’m nervous.” The menu will also feature ribs and smoked turkey legs, and Wipfli is using the occasion to preview the burger night that he plans to launch in the spring at his popular barbecue trailer.
