After 35 years as a fixture on Grand Avenue, a changing of the guard has taken place at Billy’s On Grand. Don’t worry, after sampling some of their new menu, myself and the #TCBurgerNight crew of @shawnsrodgers & @phatphood think the changes are all good!
If you’re like me, time was spent at @billysongrandave during the many, many years I attended Grand Old Day. A large patio and so many seats inside, it was always packed with people. With a new owner comes changes. There will be decor changes as you might expect, but there is also a new executive Chef brought in to shake the menu up a bit. Chef Jeremy Bechtold, @thenorthwoodstable has a relatively small menu you’ll be able to work your way through.
What is a Hangover Burger? Basically it’s a breakfast burger with some hearty ingredients and possibly something spicy. After a long night out, you might be a little dehydrated or super hungry or need to get woken up a little or need something to soak up that excess alcohol left in your system. This burger will take care of everything!
This one is a 1/4 pound, double patty, chuck, brisket and short rib blend. The char broiled beef has a softness to it I have never really seen. It melts in your mouth. American cheese tops each patty. There are a few pickled jalapeños adding a nice little kick and some pickled red onions. A couple strips of nicely cooked bacon are added. The next ingredient is killer. Duck sausage gravy is poured over the top. It’s salty and delicious. It’s finished off with a sunnyside up egg, which provides plenty of yolk. The lightly grilled brioche bun is super soft and buttery. Some of you may choose to tackle it with a knife and fork. Not me! I dove in with both hands!
I enjoyed this delicious mess of a burger, immensely!
Thank you, Chef Jeremy for hosting us. @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers have a lot more for you. You know what to do.
