Review of Burgess Brothers Smoke House Burger (Bacon Cheese Burger)

Burgess Brothers Burgers is a local BBQ join on my ‘to dine at’ list. For my first visit I decided to try their Smoke House Burger (Bacon Cheese Burger).

As descriptor on their website:

1/4 lb. Angus Beef Burgers with choice of Sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles & crispy onion included on each.

Disclaimer: I had to take my order to go so naturally some of the goodness of the burger may have been lost in transit.

About Steven

There are a few burger toppings I enjoy including avocado and grilled pineapple, but a good burger is all about the fundamentals of the beef, bun and the traditional lettuce, tomato, pickles and onion toppings. The bun needs to be soft but lightly buttered and toasted/grilled to add flavor, texture and structural integrity. The beef patty needs to be correctly proportioned with the bun, have balanced seasoning that does not overpower the natural flavor of the beef and needs to avoid too much oil/grease that results in the gut-bomb feeling. Added cheddar cheese is welcomed and almost a necessity to ensure you are comparing apples to apples as it is hard to compare a hamburger from restaurant A to a cheeseburger from restaurant B.
