I had initially heard of Norman Brothers because of their smoothies (this was many years ago before smoothies were readily available everywhere).
When my wife Marcela and I lived near there, we would shop for beef and chicken just because of the quality.
When someone mentioned that I should try out Norman Brothers’ Wagyu burgers, I knew it was game time.
I wasn’t even thinking of this when I walked in. I was trying to figure out what I was going to choose for lunch.
When we walk in, to the left of us are shelves with a variety of sauces and a small refrigerated bin with Norman Brothers’ blue cheese dip.
I’ve had this before, and it was ridiculously good.
My thought at this point was: What could I get to eat that would be an excellent reason to purchase the blue cheese?
When I reached the area where there’s warm food, I found it! Chipotle chicken wings!
My mom went with a Pastrami Sandwich. (by the way, purchase five sandwiches, and the 6th is free, we received a card).
The sandwich comes cold. I don’t know if that makes a difference to anyone, but momsy prefers it warm.
She also got a cheese soup that was pretty good. It had some veggies in it (I remember crunching on carrots at some point).
The wings were excellent and had a little bit of heat, but not too much for you wimps out there.
After we had made our lunch decisions, we do the slow walk by their Cold Cuts/Butcher area.
It was decided at that exact moment, for dinner we’ll bust out the grill.
I also wanted to purchase some of their Wagyu hot dogs.
On the grill, those guys are so money.
Fast forward to 6:30 PM, and I bust out the bbq grill at my parent’s house for a Wagyu burger party. I purchased six regular Wagyu burgers, and 3 with bacon/cheddar cheese mixed into the meat.
All 9 plus 8 of the dogs are grilled to as near perfection as I am capable.
Unfortunately, most of my family not well versed in the meat universe, which ultimately means the burgers are well done.
There was one burger left bunless (only eight buns to a pack). A few of us, including my cousin, have them cooked medium.
I really couldn’t find much of a taste difference between the bacon/cheddar and the regular, except the b/c seemed to be a little juicier. Honestly, this was one of the best burgers I’ve ever grilled.
NORMAN BROTHERS BURGERS
Every Friday, Norman Brothers is serving up their B&B burgers from 11 AM – 2 PM.
Don’t fret if you don’t make it in time, just got to the back corner where the deli is and you can have a burger made to order for you.
I ate mine on an onion roll with cheddar cheese and a mayo smear on the bottom bun.
So freakin’ addictive.
