Charlie’s Grind & Grill’s BLACK ANGUS Gorgonzola Cheeseburger

PHP 295 – Topped with Gorgonzola cheese, caramelized onions, butter leaf lettuce, tomatoes & secret sauce on a toasted butter bun.


Gorgonzola is an acquired taste. It’s one of those things that you either love or you hate, kinda like that show Glee. An exceedingly pungent and overpowering cheese, it has the ability to drown out all other flavors. You can’t put it on anything and not expect it to take center stage, which is precisely why I don’t put it on my burger. Ren however, adores the stuff.

As you can probably tell by now, she ordered this one, but being the petite eater that she is, relinquished half to me. Though I’m not avid about this particular kind of cheese, I have to admit that as far as gorgonzola burgers go, this is probably about as good as it gets. Aggressive in flavor with a taste that’s nearly impossible to describe, the cheese may have been the Rachel Berry in this burger, but the black angus patty more than held its own. Juicy and delicious as always, you could still readily appreciate it despite the strong persona of the gorgonzola.

Gorgonzola or blue cheese burgers may not be for everyone, but if you’re a fan, then you’ll be beaming with glee over this one. As for me, I may not have an appreciation for it yet, but give me a few more of these and I could be singing a different tune in no time. 😉
