Out of the Blue

Over the weekend we discovered the proposed nearby Five Guys restaurant opened its doors, finally giving me the chance to try one of these burgers I've heard so much raving about. The burger was certainly better than other fast food joints, and the fries were outstanding: This certainly makes up for the loss of the one nearby Fatburger, and is closer than that was to boot. They get high marks for using fresh ingredients, as well as for cooking everything, including the fries, to order, as there's no way to replicate that with heat lamps on pre-cooked food.

I also belong to the "home cooked is the best" crowd...but I disagree on the seasoning bit. I don't add a thing to my burgers before grilling...choosing instead to let the toppings being the flavors added. To me, the natural taste is the best way to go. There are obviously seasonings that taste good, just not as good as "natural", in my opinion anyway.

In my family, some people prefer the sauteed mushrooms and onions with cheese, some prefer the bacon and avocado, and then there is my step-daughter who seems to believe that if your hamburger consists of anything other then bread, meat, and half a bottle of ketchup you are doing it wrong. (I blame her mother...all of her kids think ketchup is a food group) The only thing I can get them to agree on is that the burger meat itself must not be touched by anything other then flames prior to being served. I personally do a double patty with sauteed mushrooms, grilled onions, bacon, mozzarella cheese, dill pickle, lettuce, and mayo on either sourdough bread or a kaiser roll. I prefer steak fries or tater tots as my side dish. A bottle of beer is usually standard as well.

When it comes to eating a burger out I have discovered two things. First, the places that probably couldn't pass a health inspection without bribery are generally making the best tasting burgers. Disgusting, but true. Second, if I am going into a true sitdown place to eat...breweries have a natural edge on everybody else when it comes to burgers. Beer and burgers are a natural partnership.

I have also found that Hard Rock cafes have excellent burgers...which can be a much appreciated break from the local food when on vacation.
