Grindhouse Killer Burgers has only been open a week, but if you keep up with all the foodie chatter, you know there’s already been a lot of talk about this place. I won’t go into too much detail because I hit them up for lunch on Tuesday with Foodie Buddha and you should read his post for the in-depth scoop.
FB’s thoughts are in line with mine for the most part. The burger is slightly greasy, served on a wonderfully soft bun, with all the requisite toppings, plus free Grindhouse sauce if you so desire. A single will do you right, so I imagine a double burger will give even the hungriest of eaters their fill. The meat itself is a bit soft, almost wet. My first thought is that I would like more seasoning in the beef mix, but upon further intense burger reflection I think I would like a little more of a flavorful and seasoned fat crust on the exterior of the meat to add some flavor and provide contrast against the soft beef.
I did enjoy the sides a bit more than FB, but I’m a sucker for hot crinkle-cut fries and the onions rings (more like straws as FB mentions) weren’t greasy and had a lots of salty and peppery flavor in the exterior, though I will agree that this style of onion ring is more of a crunchy batter conduit than an onion.
Grindhouse makes a very satisfying burger, at a fair price, in a location I very much liked. As the guy sitting next to me who stumbled upon Grindhouse for lunch said, “I might just have to do that again.”
