Chop House Burger

I have been anxiously awaiting trying this place.  It appeared on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and it looked so good.

There are many choices of burgers on the menu. I decided to go with the Chop House Burger because it has brisket mixed in with the ground beef.  That is what makes their burgers unique.



The restaurant has a really nice bakery case, but the problem is that you see it after you pay for your meal.  If you want to buy a dessert, you have to get back in line.  We saw several people do this, but once the line was out the door, it wasn't worth my time to do it.  I think they should have a second person who checks people out who want to buy a bakery item.

As I said, I ordered the Chop House Burger with fried pickles.

 The burger was good, but I wasn't that impressed with it.  The brisket was chewy and that is all that made me know it was there.  The pickles were okay, but once again, Smashburger has the best that I have had so far.
Jeff had the Chop House Burger with onion straws.  The onion straws were very limp, not crisp.  He thought the burger was good.  He had visited here earlier in the week and tried the 10 Pepper Burger  which according to the menu has: "A mixture of jalapenos, habaneros, Anaheim, New Mexico, de Arbol, red and green bells, poblanos, anchos and crushed red peppers. Topped with pepperjack and served with Tabasco mayo." He said that one was good, but it was a regular hamburger without the brisket.

The food was good, but not something I would go out of my way to have again.
