As I walked into the place, I immediately noticed the patio, which seemed like the place to be! But for some reason, we were seated inside. Nonetheless, all that place really needed was an Asian guy in a burger hat to take it to the next level.
I ordered the GRB Burger w/ a side of sweet potato tots, but for some bullsh*t reason, they were all out of tots. The service was also a bit slow and when the food finally came it seemed like chaos trying to get people their order. When I finally got my burger, I was ready to sink my teeth into it like Saurez during feeding time.
So let’s start with the bun: was it sprinkled with sesame seeds like the rhinestones on an Ed Hardy shirt? No! Was the bread soft and doughy like the Staypuft marshmallow man? F*ck No! It was very plain and kind of tough to tell if it was toasted or stale.
Now let’s look at the cheese: was it warm, gooey, and meat all my expectations of a piece of cheese thrown on top of a piece of meat? Yup!
On to the veggies: come to think of it, who gives a sh*t about veggies. I joined this club to eat beef!!
Next the Remoulade sauce: Can anyone actually pronounce that properly? I think this is just a fancy French word for Thousand Island dressing
Finally, the patty, a ground short rib and rib eye patty: Were these two parts of a cow precisely separated and sent through the meat grinder and molded together to form the meaty perfection that you would expect from a beef patty? Eh?
I give this burger a solid 6 ½. I think the Thousand Island dressing made taste like a glorified Big Mac, but hey, there’s nothing wrong with those!
As per usual, I had a great night eating beef and drinking with the fine folks of BEU! I would definitely return to this place and even do some day drinking on the patio while rockin my designer BEU shades… Til next time meat eaters!
“Kitchen put in work to get the food out fast. GRB Patty was legit.” – Kochi Sanchez
“A good burger so good I’m selfishly going to come again without BEU.” -Garrett McElver
“Solid burger. Tasty dressing. Bun was faling apart. Not a fan of the sweet potato fries.” -Erin Fuentes
“This burger was quite epic – I like the fact that it was a modern spin on a favorite. And the remoulade was awesome! Sides were sort of mixed bag – mozzarella sticks, pretzel – two thumbps up: sweet potato fries, mac and cheese – just ok. Swag items are dope! I will def wear my sunglasses at night.” -Binks
“The soft pretzel was the real hero of the day.” -Kristin Genaese
“With the exception of the waitress bringing me inferior, regular fries (rather than glorious sweet potato fries), all was A-Ok.” – Kristen Bushnell
“The toppings and makeup of the patty were the strongest elements of the burger. It was a bit overcooked and over salted, and the bun was just slightly too dry. Overall, a pretty good burger, though.” -Michael Sherwood
“McDonald’s Fries :(” – Alison D.
