I know we weren’t particularly complimentary of the burgers here when we first tried them. Well, we haven’t been back for their burgers since, but A works pretty close by and he tried their bacon sandwich one day, raved about it and ordered a couple to go for a late dinner on Wednesday night.
At $4, this is quite a steal. Generously piled with bacon, a slice of cheese and a fried egg (nary a vegetable in sight) on a hamburger bun, this is a hangover cure at its best. Plus the bacon comes with the rind, quite a rare sight these days, and I do appreciate the chewy texture that it adds.
But, and there is a but, I would advise against having this on a regular basis. Yes it’s a delicious piece of bacon heaven, but it’s really oily and not in a good way. I’m generally not one to steer clear of fat, but this was dripping with oil and not just the natural juices and oils from the bacon. I tasted burger grease as well, so I figure everything was fried in burger fat that had built up throughout the day. It’s no wonder that I promptly fell ill with a throat infection the next day, and A followed suit the day after.
Awesome. Almost makes up for the guilt you feel after eating it.
