What are you, some kinda Burger Freak?
We’ve all been there, someone calls you a Burger Freak and you think about it and agree. Hey, it doesn’t hurt to be honest with yourself. Burger Freak in Ft. Lauderdale fills the void for your kind ,um err our kind. The menu has some interesting concoctions on it, check them out below:
Burger Freak has a sideshow theme which I happen to really dig. The walls are covered with old Sideshow/Carny Posters. I almost felt right at home.
There are plenty of options but I wanted to keep it simple for my first order. There’s a hot dog called the Beast but it’s half a pound and if I’m planning on having a burger too it would be a bad idea. I end up with the Grilled Devil Dog (half a Beast) and throw in a cup of their “Hamburger Chili”. On the burger side, I create my own: 6 oz. Angus Patty, Brioche Bakery Kaiser with Bacon and Cheddar Cheese (American was not available).
The “Hamburger Chili” is Hormel’s Chili and if I’m wrong (which is doubtful in this case) then it must be closest replica to it I’ve ever tasted. If you like Hormel canned Chili then this is for you, for me it was not. There went my original plan to dip the dog in the chili! I liked the toasted fluffy bread my Dog was served in. The jumbo half Hot Dog was split in half and crisped up. Some raw Onions and Yellow Mustard rounded out my toppings for the Grilled Devil Dog.
The fries are “Natural Cut Fries” which means they’re not fresh cut but are as close as you can get by using the frozen stuff. And the burger? The Burger is a top notch fast style burger. I just wish they had American Cheese as I think it’s a better option for this type of burger.
I’d like to go back and try out one of their specialty burgers, maybe The Sword Swallower (Burger topped with Sliced Italian Sausage) or The Two Headed Man (Burger topped with Hot Dog). Meat on Meat action, isn’t that what it’s all about my fellow Burger Freaks?
