If you have been reading this blog, you know that I consider these guys to have one of the best burgers. No, this isn’t a new spot for me, but I feel that they deserve a full review. A group of friends and I went because we love burgers and I had a Groupon. We managed to get a great deal on beers and burgers. Even without the deal, their Monday nights have $2.50 bottled beer and $5 off 1lb patties – I don’t know who can eat an entire one pound burger… but shoot, then I had lunch for the next day.
I do have some favorites – which were almost picked by my friends without my rec (the Señor burger & the Frenchie burger). I went for a new choice – The Elvis – which was a beef patty topped with peanut butter and bacon. I know, I know… peanut butter on a burger? Despite that it was a little messy, the sweet peanut butter and bacon went perfectly with the toothsome burger. I am a huge fan of sweet when connected with savory. I loved it… No one else at my table was willing to try it.
My friend ordered the Porky – which is tender, tasty pulled pork on top of the patty. He seemed to enjoy it and I assume because he didn’t share he had no complaints. My other friend went with the Western burger. It sounded great, but she said it was a little too big to fit in her mouth – and meeting new people she didn’t dive in with the knife and fork. Lastly, despite that it was burger night, my friend ordered a pizza. They do a thin crust pizza. Their pizza is good, not as good as their burgers, but I have yet to be disappointed. My friend, however, was – although he ordered the buffalo chicken pizza which comes with, wait for it… buffalo chicken, blue cheese, and green onions. He didn’t like; he also doesn’t really like sauces and this one had melty blue cheese – shocker.
This was not my favorite trip. We had a wonderful server – Andy – I think. He was attentive and responsive. But all of our burgers were really over cooked. We all went for medium and I don’t think any of them came with any pink at all in the middle. Nevertheless, I will still go back and they will still stay high on my burger list. But, they better keep it together or The Owl Bar will be taking their spot.
