Heart Attack on a Plate
Living up to it’s name, this 100% Angus burger is first stuffed with cheddar cheese before being beer battered and deep fried. It’s then served on a kaiser roll with lettuce and tomato. It’s served along with a heaping pile of fries and chipotle mayo.
3 pt out of 5 for the Overall
Ours was overcooked, but we forgive them due to it being excessivly busy. Despite this, the burger was heavy on novelty (besides feeling heavy on the insides) and lacking on taste.
5 pt out of 5 for the Quality/originality
The burger was cheese stuffed, beer battered and deep fried. How much more original can you get?
5 pt out of 5 for the Presentation
It’s called the Heart Attack on a Plate with good reason as it’s a platter of a hefty sandwich and fries.
3 pt out of 5 for the Toppings
Basic Lettuce and tomato, but Angel really enjoyed their chipotle mayo sauce.
2 pt out of 5 for the Meat
The meat was dry and well done.
3 pt out of 5 for the Bun
It held the burger, but with the burger already being deep fried, it was barely needed and seemed excessive.
1 pt out of 3 for the Temp
Generally speaking, deep fried and stuffed means overcooked and dry… this was no exception.
1 pt out of 2 for the IT factor
In this case, It = shock value.
Burger Total: 23 pt out of 35
A little over done (which I will right off as it being crazy busy) the crunchy beer batter with gooey cheese center was definitely a burger to try. In the end the burger was depending on the deep fried hook.
5 pt out of 5 for the location.
There is two parts to this score for this place. The restaurant was fun local bar with bar type food with a twist. The Bar scene was a fun and a bit wild. With dancing in back and a pool table out front they had some thing for all.
4 pt out of 5 for value.
It filled the two of us for $11, but it also hit both of our bellies like a ton of bricks.
1 pt out of 5 bonus points.
+1 I know Sean doesn’t like mayo (like many others), but the chipotle mayo helped me shovel the last of the fries.
