Burger at the Ceili Cottage

Wedensdays are Burger Day at the Cottage. It's a hand ground, hand formed, char-grilled burger, cooked to your liking. Mine was cooked a perfect medium as ordered. It was well seasoned and juicy, and it had a charred crust on the outside which I liked a lot. In short, it was a great burger, way better than most in town including Allen's.

It comes with bacon and cheese. The latter was great, a sharp cheddar, I think. The former, not so much. I think the rind was left on b/c one piece was so chewy that my teeth couldn't break through. It was like a rubber band. The other piece was undercooked and fatty.

So get to the Cottage for a cheeseburger, hold the bacon. Or maybe it was just an off night for the bacon. I would give that another chance.

    Can you tell me what the price was for the burger, with and without the cheese and bacon? Also, did it come with anything on the side?

      $10 (great price IMO), with a side salad. i can't remember if that included the cheese and bacon. Weirdly, they don't serve the burger with fries and they had run out of kettle chips. Bummer.

      Sounds great. I like it when a restaurant will actually put care into their burger.

      so they only serve it on Wednesdays?

        Yeah, their gimmick is that they start with a giant hunk of animal on Sunday (could be lamb, beef, pork, mutton, etc) and each day of the week has a specific preparation of that animal
        Sunday: roast
        wednesday: burgers

        I don't know the other days off the top of my head.

        A while back I happened to go there two wednesdays in a row. They were serving the same lamb burger, which was okay. It kind of ruined the gimmick for me though.

        What was the bun like? The only time I saw it, it looked like some kind of whole wheat concoction. Which I don't want with a burger. No brioche, no 12-grain, give me soft white to sop up the juices every time. Sesame seeds optional.
