I’m a little late getting out to Celts Craft House for Chef Al’s February Burger of the Month. Lucky for us, it’s Leap Year, and that means an extra day to get out here and have yet another one of Al’s fantastic burger creations.
I know, I keep giving you the same old reviews of Al’s BOM’s. Fantastic, Amazing and Incredible. The truth is, if anything, it’s a little tougher for Al to get my highest ratings because it is my favorite local go to place. But, in the end, I have to give you my honest opinion of what I experience.
This month, I’ve got a Tex Mex style burger to tell you about. It has a little bite to it, but the incredible flavors put this burger in the upper class. The 1/2 pound chuck, brisket & short rib blend hits my temp and is super juicy. The patty is grilled, and when it’s flipped, a wet chipotle paste is spread on. This delicious chipotle concoction is more than enough seasoning for the beef.
Sautéed onions, red peppers and green peppers are heaped on top of the patty, and beautifully melted pepper jack cheese blankets all of it. Fire roasted green chile’s are sprinkled all over the top. The pepper jack cheese and the chipotle rub give this burger a nice little bite. Adding more flavor is Al’s new lime, cilantro aioli that is generously spread on top of the perfectly toasted, Denny’s 5th Ave. Bakery bun. With Al’s burgers, I never have to say, “if your going to give me some sauce, then give me some damn sauce”! The combination of all these different flavors will have your taste buds tingling. This burger is fantastic!
Hand-Cut Fries – Fantastic!
