Perfecting the Kraft

A friend of mine had been hyping up the burger at Kraftwork for a while now, so I decided it was finally time to check it out (lest I get nagged continuously). It’s not like I’ve never been to Kraftwork before. It’s the starting point for the twice yearly Craft Beer Express and they’ve always got a pretty solid draft list; I’ve just never had a chance to eat here until now. The burger is touted as being a special dry aged blend and comes customizable with an assortment of toppings for 50 cents a pop (lettuce, pickles and one topping are included). I opted to top mine with sharp cheddar and bacon red onion marmalade. You also get a choice of either garlic herbed fries or a mixed green salad as your side. I was planning on partaking in Hot Diggity‘s Fourth of July corn dog special later that day and was saving my deep fried food intake for that, so I went with the salad (who am I?!).

The burger came out with a nice presentation: patty situated on top of the pickles and lettuce, fairly proportional to the bun. However, when I picked it up, that’s when things fell apart – literally. A lot of grease came dripping off the back of the burger and the meat started to separate slightly after my first bite. It was also cooked more on the medium-well side then my usual requested medium. Thankfully the grease didn’t make the bun too soggy (probably thanks to the lettuce/pickle “diaper”), but I did have to compensate for the patty coming apart and leaving behind excess bun by eating around the burger instead of head-on. The pickles gave the burger a little bit of crunch and sweetness, as did the bacon-onion marmalade, but there wasn’t a lot of flavor otherwise.

After I’d finished, I overheard some people at the table next to me debating who had the best burger in the area; one guy said it used to be this one but now he was leaning towards Interstate Draft House. Maybe I just waited too long to try this burger? I guess next time I’ll listen to my friends and check things out sooner!

Burger rating: “C+”
