You could argue that an exceptional burger was programmed into The General Muir's DNA from the very beginning. Both burgers here are so good that you'll find yourself scrabbling after all the bits and pieces of shrapnel. Just remember to add the poutine.
What's Italian for "sad?" At Cibo e Beve, I ordered a topping as unique as duck and paid 17 bucks for the privilege, but came away with an impression that was no more memorable than "a rich white pie that mainly tastes like smoke."
In just its third year, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival has quickly blossomed into one of the premier events of its kind in the South. Culinary talent from 12 states handed out samples of everything imaginable... and a few noshes like nothing even we'd ever dreamed of before.
I'm not sure six strips of bacon versus two really warrants a Superman comparison, but there's nothing not to like here. Except for the silly name they gave to the invented piece of porcine architecture that graces this movie tie-in burger.
I know. It's a burger on a waffle. Surprisingly simple in its construction. But Dad's Waffle is superb in its execution. I didn't expect to be blown away by burgers at a brunch place, but Buttermilk Kitchen's did just that.
Cucina Asellina should be killing it in Atlanta. But sadly, their much-ballyhooed pizzas left my palate underwhelmed, and my wallet overextended.
The our-burgers-are-so-extreme-that-we-have-to-serve-them-with-a-steak-knife-plunged-through-the-center schtick is way overdone, but on my next visit to Wild Wing Cafe, there's a very good chance I'll do another burger.
The goal at Urban Stack is to let the topping profiles shine on burgers that aren't difficult to eat and don't leave you feeling miserably full afterward. Don't be afraid to go big with some of these crazy combinations.
No. 246 may not be a "pizza place" per se, but the under-the-radar pies certainly deserve mention when you're talking about the city's finest.
Of Burger King's new menu items, four are burgers aimed at very different demographics. All are limited-time offerings. At least two deserve to be.
The new Jim Beam Bourbon Thickburger is a clever twist, sure to excite a certain demographic of young male fast food consumers who will be intrigued simply by the alcohol tie-in. Of course, a little T&A also plays well with that crowd, and Hardee's/Carl's Jr. never disappoints. But how does the real thing stack up to the booze-soaked, high-production-value fantasy?
The hip Buckhead hotspot has a "secret" burger on the menu that's worth looking into, but judging by how many I saw walk out of the kitchen during my recent lunch visit, the 50/50 Burger may not technically qualify as a secret at all.
A recent newspaper article singled out Westside Pizzeria as "the kind of place you sort of hate to tell people about." For me, it was definitely a tale of two pies.
The Hickory Burger has a smidge of barbecue sauce...and a gigantic mound of cheddar. But it's the House-Made Veggie Burger that has inspired legions of fans.
Hits include tasty Angus beef cooked beautifully, superb buns, and a few of the more conventional $3 slider varieties. But there are misses, too: limp fries, chewy onion rings, and some of the experimental snack-sizers...but that may depend on your opinion of beef tongue.
Popeyes has long featured cinnamon apple pies and sweet potato pies on their dessert menu, but their new limited time offering puts the spotlight on the official state fruit of Louisiana, the strawberry. (Yeah. Who knew? See, kids, stay in school. Or... get a job eating and then writing about fast food.)
With regular slices that drape off their paper plates and crazy stuffed pies that can weigh up to sixteen pounds, this may not be the best-known of the local pizzerias trying to mimic the Big Apple...but they may be doing it better than anybody else.
Chocolate-covered strawberries are the quintessential Valentine's Day treat. So does Dairy Queen's Blizzard version inspire true love or is it an artificial sensation at best?
Promotional materials tout a "creamy avocado spread" and "zesty avocado aioli." But the word guacamole is nowhere to be found. That being said, I'd order the Avocado and Swiss Whopper again.
While I don't keep stats on such things, I'm fairly sure I set a personal speed record for inhaling this fantastic burger.
Molten: Oozing. Flowing. Dangerously hot. Add the word fudge after it, and the mental picture gets exponentially better, right? Sorry. This is a fast food dessert we're talking about.
It's solid, unpretentious, neighborhood pizza... and if it didn't require circling the block looking for a parking spot, I'd be fine with it being my go-to Friday-night pie. But the real surprise came when I went Sicilian.
The Jalapeño Turkey Burger is one of the worst burgers I've attempted to eat in recent memory.
Based on outward appearances, you might not think The Rusty Nail has anything beyond mediocre pub grub. But when it comes to burgers, The Nail unfailingly exceeds whatever expectations you've brought in with you.
The red and green bits dotting the top of my McDonald's Holiday Mint McFlurry weren't immediately identifiable to me, but they were not the candy cane shrapnel I had assumed I would be seeing. I can't tell you what the hell these things are. That's not to say I don't like them.
