The Burger Project’s ANGUS Western Bacon Melt
PHP 265 – Angus beef, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, onion rings, barbecue sauce.
If you’re unfamiliar with BRGR: The Burger Project, it’s a burger joint that allows you to build your very own burger from the bun up. You get to choose everything, from the type of beef that you want, to the bun, to the cheese, to the toppings, to the sauce. You even get to name your creation prior to its assembly.
Though the prospect of building your own burger sounded like fun, I wasn’t exactly in a gambling mood that night, so I stuck to what I expected to be a can’t-miss, ready-made burger. At our server’s recommendation, I went with the Angus version of this Western Bacon Melt, which she cited as being their most popular. To my disappointment though, one bite was enough to convince me that I should have come up with my own.
You’d think that a cheeseburger made with Angus beef, bacon, mushrooms, onion rings, and barbecue sauce would be a surefire hit, but it wasn’t. The flavors of the burger itself were disappointing. I expected to bite into something life-changing a la Charlie’s, but that didn’t happen. The bacon was pretty much a non-factor, and the barbecue sauce I didn’t like at all. It wasn’t very smokey, imparting only an overpowering sweetness that I could have done without.
Though it’s clear that I didn’t enjoy this burger, it’s important to note that it wasn’t terrible either. It was just disappointingly average, more Army Navy than Charlie’s, and something that I probably could have put together myself. Wait…
Verdict: 2.5 / 5
