Simple food done well.


We are extraordinarily lucky to live in a region rich with amazing agricultural land and small farmers that are committed to providing world class meats, produce, and dairy.

Welcome to

Boxcar Burgers

Boxcar began life as a food truck (or more specifically a trailer), quickly growing to two trucks, and then finally our current iteration of one truck and the Brunswick brick and mortar location. The restaurant is co-located with the Towpath Creamery, which serves high-quality Trickling Springs ice cream, also made from grass fed local milk (PA).  The location is in the heart of historic downtown, within steps of the MARC commuter train and the C&O Canal Towpath. While we currently have limited hours, we hope to expand them soon.


Grass Fed Beef

Simply put, grass fed beef is better for the environment, better for the animals, and creates a superior quality product.  Grass fed beef is produced from cows who are exclusively raised in pastures grazing on their natural diet of – you guessed it – grass. 

Boxcar uses only beef from cows that live their entire lives in the field as opposed to the vast majority of commercially raised cattle, which are fed a diet of grain for the last 5-8 months of their lives.

Perfect classic burgers.

"Pickled beets are the sweet and sour bite that all burgers have been missing. Such clean flavors and excellent seasoning. If you like burgers then finding and eating a Boxcar burger is a no brainier. Go right now........ Seriously. Staff is pretty cool too."

"I am a burger fanatic."

"I seriously will judge a place on the quality of their burgers, and Boxcar totally blows my mind!!! I don’t think I’ve ever had a burger as tasty and fresh as theirs! Just tried the Impossible Burger today, and it was simply fantastic! Love this place."
