How was your day?
No idea. You?
And then, inspiration struck!
Sounds like a Burger night!
I think you're right!
Burger Jones, it is!
I love this graphic, and the picture -- looks like the guy is sitting right next to me!
'Tis true. So even a country mouse and a city mouse posing as a country mouse can try an overpriced -- yet awesome -- burger and fries. Or at least mine was great.
But I get ahead of myself.
In the beginning, there was beer...
Bell's Two Hearted Ale -- one of our favorites. I have a soft spot for good tap beer. It was happy hour so these big beers were only $4 apiece. Nice price. Mmm...beer!
But we took our chances anyway.
I had the Green Chile Cheese burger...holy moly was this fantastic!
The bummer? Fries weren't included with our $9.99 burgers and while I love the fries (the same as Salut...it is a Parasole restaurant after all...) the portion was small. We wanted to share the fries but when we saw how small the portion was, we decided to put in an order of onion rings as well...
Now, we buy Velveeta (couldn't live with the man without it) and this did NOT look like Velveeta. Have to admit that we know this by the color...this wasn't the right color. Could there be an off-brand of Velveeta (*shudder*)? It's hard enough having the real thing in the house, to be honest. But we do. So there you go. We know our Velveeta.
The cheese curds were cold and a little on the funky side, and the bacon wasn't exactly chicken fried, but more like fish fried? It was a cornmeal type breading that didn't really achieve its "chicken fried" mark.
So, it was a 50/50 split. Expensive, mostly tasty. We'd try it again some night when we were either jonesin for a crazy build your own burger or feeling very rich.
At least we could agree on the beer.//
