- BUTTERY BURGER: The Great American Burger at The House
On the list: this burger, the Great American Burger ($9.50) at The House. From bun top to bottom it’s a great example of how a good burger can be put together from fine ingredients and served up with a little pizzazz.
My choice of burger was the traditional beef patty, which was very lean and tightly packed. The burger comes with herbed mayo, which is a very nice touch. It also comes with tomatoes, red onion ringlets and green leaf lettuce,
Sides are varied — the day I went fries weren’t offered but I did have a choice of chips or salad. I chose the latter and received a nice, sweet dressing drizzled pile of fresh baby salad greens and croutons, a nice fresh side to the burger.
And the burger itself? Nicely crusted and lightly seasoned. I chose the Chevre cheese to add to my burger and was very pleased with the combination of richy beefy burger and tangy cheese. Maytag Blue Cheese is my other favorite here, though you also have a choice of more traditional favorites such as Swiss and Cheddar.
If I were to call this burger anything, I’d say it was buttery — that’s the overall combination of the bun, the patty and the cheese on me.
