Curbside To-Go: JL Beers is one of the few places I get to visit a few times a year since it is in the south metro and I enjoy their burgers a lot. Wait, let me rephrase that. I enjoy their burger a lot. 😉
Trying another burger on their menu is a new thing for me. I almost always get the JL Burger with bacon. I add a third patty a lot of the time as well. I’ll be honest, I was hesitant to not get my go to burger. The reason I did was because it was #nationalpeanutbutterandjellyday and I thought it would be kind of cool.
I didn’t expect their PB & J to be this good. Every time you order, your peanut butter is fresh ground on the spot. It did taste very fresh. It’s creamy, but you can still feel a little bit of the ground peanut chunks in it. Delicious peanut flavor. Their red pepper jelly is cool and sweet. Not too sweet though. The combination is magic. What adds even more flavor to this are the added diced jalapeños, which add just a little heat. They give you a nice amount of peanut butter and red pepper jelly, but I like to have the option to get a little crazy with extra sauce, so I did get an extra side of both and I used it all! A nice amount of pepper jack cheese also adds a little kick.
One fresh Midwestern beef patty, charred and seasoned nicely on their unique grill press. You won’t find many places that use cottage bacon. Cottage bacon is made from the pig shoulder/butt. It doesn’t have that big strip of fat that regular bacon has, so it’s all meat. Totally works for me. The nicely toasted, soft bun works. The top bun might look a little big, but it squished down nicely. No issues. I will get this burger again, but it will be after a few more JL Burgers!
