|R.F.O'Sullivan and Son's J.D. Burger|
For starters, their burger menu is seriously intense. There's a long list (about 2 dozen strong) of regular burgers in addition to a good handful or so of daily burger specials. After going back and forth between a couple of different choices, I ended up ordering their J.D. Burger ($8.95), which is their giant 1/2 lb burger brushed with their homemade BBQ sauce and coated in melted cheddar cheese. When given the choice between french fries, onion rings or a little of both, I went with the half and half (a girl's gotta do her research properly, right?).
About twenty minutes or so later (they warn you that their burgers take longer to make) I was presented with a giant mound of meat shaped into giant meatball form, smothered in cheese and coated in BBQ sauce. Fortunately, I was able to squish it down a bit to a manageable size. At first bite, I loved the balance of the thick and tangy BBQ sauce and the healthy amount of cheddar that was hugging the sides of the massive burger. Finally! A decent amount of cheese on a burger! The burger itself was cooked to a perfect medium rare. It's been a while since I've seen that.

Overall, I think that if R.F.O'Sullivan's added a little salt to their burgers and made their fries a little more manageable, I think there's hope. I liked the temp of the burger, the cheesiness factor and the flavor of the BBQ sauce and found that it to all be very reasonably priced. Best burger? I don't think so but definitely something worth checking out.
