We’ve been trying to change our diet, and eat better, but it’s so hard not to eat out once in awhile, so we like to try out the local burger joints. I have a very sensitive stomach, so I have to watch what I eat. The first time I tried Squeeze Burger their food was fantastic, but I had a rough night, I wasn’t so sure I wanted to try it again.
We normally give a new restaurant at least two tries and I am so glad we have that policy because the food was just as delicious the second time. This burger was monster size. The first time I ate half the burger and the second time I ate a little more than half.
The bacon is out of this world, it’s thick and crispy, just like you made it from home. The cheese skirt is heavenly, about a 3″ “skirt” of cheddar cheese, that breaks off from the burger easily. Either eat it alone or break it off and put it back on the burger. Unless, you are big eaters do yourself a favor, split it with someone because the fries and custard are both incredible. You will want to save a little room.
I can’t tell you when I’ve had a burger that was so satisfying. Everything is made fresh daily and it tastes like it. I didn’t inquire as to the type of beef they use because frankly, sometimes it’s just better not to know. <grin> I didn’t get sick and that’s all that matters to me. It probably still has GMO’s in the meat, so I wouldn’t eat this too often.
The burger was juicy and it was thicker than your regular fast food burger, the bun has sesame seeds that I normally avoid and while the bun is covered it’s steamed on the grill and I really didn’t notice them. The fries were seasoned, fresh, hot, and firm. They were delicious.
I stopped in this afternoon determined to try the custard. I got chocolate and vanilla twirl, the small, it was absolutely delicious and I was prepared to hate it. It was creamy, with a very smooth texture, nothing grainy here, very thick, it reminded me of Wendy’s Frosty, but this isn’t ice cream, it’s custard. I’ve tried all the frozen yogurt in town and didn’t care for any of it. This was exceptional and it didn’t upset my stomach one bit. I’m simply amazed.
We will be going back, just not too often, this is greasy, fried, fast food, that isn’t so fast but this rates right up there with In-N-Out Burger, except the price. In-N-Out is simple, good, cheap food, and it’s fresh, now multiply that by 3 cause that’s what you will pay, but you’ll get 4 times the burger.
