“Ooooo, Yeah! Burger” – Macho Man

Burger goodddddddddd

It's been a while since I've written any sort of reviews on food, so its a little relieving that the first from my hiatus is a pretty positive one -- and for that, I can thank the tastegasm I was given by Yeah! Burger off Howell Mill.

Yeah! Burger opened up two blocks from my loft several months ago, and I have only now made my way there to try it out.

This evening I spent a bit of time being foiled at every attempt of grabbing a bite to eat (tried 3 different places and was turned away from all). Finally, with no where else I had to look (interested, anyways) I pulled up to Yeah! Burger and parked my ride in the 15 minute TOGO parking, and figured perfect -- no one wants to be that guy that eats at a place alone.

I headed right for the TOGO and Drinks counter and grabbed a menu and dove in head first instantly giving my order -- which was a bison burger, on white roll (out of wheat), with lettuce, tomato, jalapenos, grilled vidalia onions, pepper jack cheese, and their bacon jam sauce.

My creation was mostly me, partly aide. My original order called for nitrate-free bacon and a mayo sauce, but she recommended I void the bacon and sub the sauce for their bacon jam -- some kind of reduced vinegar molasses bacon concoction -- I dont know, I heard bacon and I was all in -- oh, and I got an order of their buttermilk Vidalia onion rings based on recommendations from other reviews on Urbanspoon.

I then sat down after payin ($13.35 + $2.00 for tip) and waited. This was where I had my only issue with the place -- it was a bit of a cluster. I pulled in around 8:45 and they close at 9, and people were stil there ordering food at the normal counter. Everyone seemed burnt out and ready to go, and the food line (which had a fryer, a person that portioned fries/rings, a line boss, two people on grill and a topper guy) all worked together in what seemed the opposite of unison. I did notice the food runners check every individual order and have everything fixed, to their best effort, before taking the food out -- this is probably a huge save for them.

Anyway, I got my food and hit the door to head home and gobble up my food while enjoying the first evening of the 2010 Shark Week!

All in all, I was happy with the food! The onion rings were the thin cut, but I prefer the big hefty variety. The burger was tasty, messy, and tasty! I ate every last bit, and plan on returning and trying another burger with different combination (mainly the sauce).

Final verdict: Very pleased with my meal -- and it was cheaper for what you would get at Flip (have I mentioned that place is a damn rip?)
