Here are the pure and simple results:
Beef: house-ground Harris Ranch; slightly over-cooked but still juicy and flavorful
Bun: locally baked with their own recipe, the brioche bun was possibly the best part of the burger....in a tie with the gloriously beefiness of the patty.
Cheese: gorgonzola crumbles, a generous amount that added a terrific punch
Extras: no sauce on the burger, but the green chile mayo served on the side was amazing & the perfect dipper for both the regular and sweet potato fries; bacon was crispy and delicious
Produce: all was fresh and crisp; the star of this side show was the Katy's pickle slices. all the burgers come with a side of green leaf lettuce, white onion, tomatoes, and pickles.
Ratios: excellent beef-to-bun-to-cheese ratios.
Price: $8-12 and fries are extra ($3)
*Pure Burger recommendations: the 5 Star Burger was truly great, but we'd choose the Green Chile or the Lamb burger for real "wow" factor...the Green Chile melted pepper jack over the top of chopped hatch chiles, and the lamb was a perfect mid-rare with cucumber slices and tzatziki sauce. Out of the ordinary, but awesome.
|Taos Burger: That's a whole, fried green chile on top - yum!|
*Pure Burger rating: our first review means first place! Let's see if they can hold on to the top.
"The Side Dish": Not a meat eater? The Portobello Stack was a nice alternative; fries were good; no complaints on service or cleanliness; although not necessarily a "family restaurant" the kids were definitely happy!
