Best Burger of 2014
And, I nominate the 'Heavenly Burger", enjoyed last night at Happy
Hour of Citron and Rose, in Philadelphia, between 5 and 6:30pm,
Monday-Thursday, maybe Sunday also, not sure.
From the Happy Hour menu card: 12 oz Ground Ribeye; C+R made soft roll; Barbeque Beef Cheek; leaf lettuce and Pickles, accompanied
by Matzoh Crusted Onion Rings. ($28 as is; $44 accompanied by
Black Truffles, which we passed on)
Read my full review on the Philadelphia Board. For me, even though
the burger was heavenly, it was the Barbecued Beef Cheek that sent it
over the top.
My vote goes for the Milt Burger at Milts Barbecue for the Perplexed in Chicago - Char-Burger with chopped brisket, chili, “bacon”, crispy onion, and bbq aioli. - and it is only $15 .
In Second place and a bit sloppier is the "Bay-Ken" Burger at Kens Diner in Skokie - A 1/2lb. beef burger with all the toppings, crispy beef Frye and sautéed mushrooms for $12.99
