Last night at the Wheelin’ Dealin’ Street Food Festival we had Woody’s Burgers come out to Florida’s longest running Food Truck event for the first time. I was extra excited since I’m on a wood burning & char-grilled Burger kick and Woody’s covers both of those. The 7-ounce patties from Woody’s Burgers are made from a mix of Chuck & Brisket. The Fries are fresh cut and there’s even a choice of 5 dipping sauces (Red Eye, Wasabi, Smoked Habanero, Key Lime and Ginger, & Roast Garlic) available to you which is my thang.
I was sure that the Alpine Burger was going to be my first choice even before I arrived at the window. Since my table is always filled with friends and family at this event, I get a little more than normal so that we can share the goods. There was a Burger Special for the night called the Magic City Burger with a Chorizo & Beef Patty, no arm twisting necessary to order on this one. The order of fresh cut Fries with Roast Garlic dipping sauce rounded out the first order, yes I said first as in there was another one.
Let’s start by mentioning just how great the Burger patty and the smoke flavor emanating from it were. Also, if you take a good look at the pre-selected Burgers on the menu you can tell someone took some time to really layer the flavors, the combinations work. If I had to nitpick I’d say thinner patty would be better but that’s just my preference.
Later on, we had about 10 folks sitting at our table so I went back and ordered a Boom AND a Coronary Burger along with their Buffalo-style Fries (topped with Frank’s Red Hot & Gorgonzola Cheese). They were out of Eggs (that’s the Miami crowd for you having eggs on everything) so my Coronary Burger was san huevos. Both Burgers were great too and my sister in law devoured those Fries pretty much by herself.
Next time I shall create a Burger from the available options (Condiments, Extras, Mayo, Sauces & Cheeses) and name him “La Bonita”, that Mrs. Beautiful to you……buster!
