Some days, I don’t want to leave my house, which becomes an even worse scenario when there’s nothing to eat; enter food delivery.
As of late, I’ve been using Bite Squad, whose service can be spotty, but I was starving.
Juicy Smashed Burgers BurBowl caught my eye a few weeks back, so when I saw their name on the app, it was a done deal.
I was torn on the single or double meat option but decided on the double since it’s a smashed patty, which generally means a smaller burger. Unfortunately, they were out of Juicy Doggies, so a Juicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich was in order, along with some Juicy Loaded Fries.
The fries were interesting since there were three varieties of fries in the order: those Fries with a crispy exterior, waffle fries & sweet potato fries. I like the idea, but I should have skipped out on the bacon and added one of their killer sauces; more on that later.
Chicken Sandwich Talk
This was a perfectly seasoned grilled chicken sandwich to which I added caramelized onions and some secret juicy sauce. I didn’t ask what was in the sauce, but there is some heat; I’m leaning towards a jalapeño cream-type sauce.
BurBowl Burger Talk
I wasn’t expecting much, but when I opened the container, my eyes lit up; it was beautiful. The burger had a nice meat crust on the patty; whoever cooked this knew what time it was.
I chose American cheese, the juicy secret sauce, and potato roll as the vehicle to carry the meat (pretzel bun & lettuce leaf are options too).
I couldn’t leave well enough alone and couldn’t get
Juicy Smashed Burgers BurBowl out of my mind, so I paid a visit to the actual store in Downtown Miami two days later.
My plan was to be a little more civilized this time: try the single burger and doggie, and get some fries with cheese and one of their sauces. It was just as good, if not better than the one I had earlier (same choices on toppings).
I prefer the double version, but remember; I’m a meaty guy. The truth is I ate the entire doggie before I took a stab at the burger.
I saw corn was an option, and I figured, why not. Well, I’ll tell you why….it was cold (the corn, not the dog) and threw off the entire dog for me.
If I had a do-over, I’d have a Juicy Doggie with cheese sauce, grilled onions, and garlic chipotle sauce. I didn’t mention the garlic chipotle sauce only because I hadn’t tried it til I made my way to the cheese fries.
It was pretty addictive and went well with the burger, which ended up being dipped into it. However, since I’m not a fan of those fries with the crispy exterior, get the sweet potato fries.
If you’re near the vicinity or can get this burger delivered, do it. I can’t imagine a world where you wouldn’t love it.
