The flavors are off the charts on this one. Does bacon belong on a burger? When itโ€™s perfectly cooked, thick cut bacon, with with a sweet, smoky Guinness glaze, it sure does. You get two big strips of this magical creation. My recommendation, break off a big chunk of that bacon, and enjoy just how good it is on its own. I asked for a bowl of it after I tasted it. The 1/2 pound beef patty has a smoke seasoning mixed in with Alโ€™s house seasoning blend. This is how a burger should be seasoned. He gets a really nice char on the patty and the perfectly cooked beef was Juicy AF!

Super thick, nicely melted, smoked Gouda tops the patty and joins the smoky party, already attended by the bacon and the seasoning. I love my onions sautรฉed. Red is the choice here.

The sauce on this flavor bomb is a wonderful, roasted red pepper aioli. There is an abundant swipe of it on the top of the soft, lightly toastedย @dennysbakeryย bun. Al wanted something light and peppery so he put some arugula, just enough, on the bottom bun.

The Mesa Burger is gourmet and it is elite. Itโ€™s available throughout the month of May. If you rarely get down to the South Metro or if youโ€™ve seen myย @celtscrafthouseย posts over the last 4 years and keep saying you need to get there, now is the time!
