I’d been promising myself that I’d get back over to The Industry to give their burger a second chance since the first time I was totally underwhelmed; the bun was too big for the single patty I’d ordered and it left me sad and unfulfilled. So I had a burger a do-over, doubling my efforts – literally – by ordering two patties instead of one.
The burger is 1/4lb ground brisket topped with red onion, Cabbot cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and pickle mayo (no preference is asked on how you want it cooked since the patties are fairly slim). The double patties definitely made a difference this time around. The burger was much juicier and more meaty, completely filling out the bun. I did still find myself with a small bun heel left over despite all the meat that had been sandwiched between it, but it was a vast improvement over my first, single patty burger there last year where I felt like there was so much bread overshadowing the burger itself. It just goes to show that sometimes giving things a second chance can make a big difference!
And if you needed more of an incentive to get your buns over to The Industry to check this burger out, Eater Philly just made it one of the top 15 burgers to try in Philly right now as part of Philly Burger Week!
Burger Rating (two patties): “B+”
