For me to admit that I love a burger is kind of a big deal. To really get my point across, I’ll be honest and say that I’m not really a burger/sandwich person. There, I said it. *GASP*
If you read My Story, you’ll recall that my Daddy owns a restaurant. He does old fashioned burgers and hot dogs and I’m quite partial to them. I’ve never truly been a fan of the “fancy” burger. Until Fork n Cork flipped my world upside down with their creativity and deliciousness.
I can’t tell you how many photos I have on my phone of Fork n Cork burgers. I could completely flood this blogroll with nothing but Fork n Cork reviews, but I’m not going to do that because I’m hoping you’ll take my word for it. However, what I will say is that their burgers are phenomenal!
Each week (I believe on Thursdays) they introduce a new burger special of the week. Most recently, I had the joyous pleasure of feasting upon the “Italian Stallion.” A beef patty topped with salami and pepperoni then smothered with peppadew Havarti and provolone cheeses, homemade olive and pepper relish, and finished off with a tomato and spring mix greens. This particular day I was watching my carb intake, so I chose no-bun and a side salad with ranch. Never fear…the buns ARE good! AND, they have a gluten free option!
Hubs had the crispy chicken sandwich and it is a solid option as well. A crispy fried chicken breast topped with Swiss cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato and stout mustard. He chose onion rings as his side dish. You know I stole a few! This is a staple menu item and will not disappoint!
If you like bloody marys, I recommend the Cucumber Jalapeno. They make the mix in house and it is a wonderful mix of clean, crisp, and spice. It is typically served with a skewer of olives (I ate mine in excitement before snapping a picture). This may sound crazy, but the bartender recommended that I add Bacon Hot Sauce to my drink to step it up a notch. It sounds insane, I know. BUT, it gives it the extra flavor and kick to make it over the top! For real though, you can’t go wrong with bacon anything! I personally think it is the best bloody mary in town!
Fork n Cork is a go-to for us 😉
