Mexicali comes to Wilmington

We recently had a family gathering at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in Wilmington, Delaware. A whole bunch of cousins!

I had the Mexicali Burger with pico de gallo, pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese & chipotle thousand island dressing.

The jalapeños weren’t really that spicy and they didn’t take away from the falvor of the burger patty. (I think it would be a good idea to have a “jalapeño challenge” where you can have extra peppers.) The pico de gallo made a nice change instead of ordinary tomato and onion. I liked the chipotle thousand island dressing because it had a tang and I could dip my fries into it.

Mexicali Burger… yours for $12.50 (plus tip!)

It cost $12.50. I think this is a little too much. It was worth $10.50, but $12.50 is a stretch.

Overall I award this burger 6 ½ points out of 10. That’s at the top end of average. I would give it another ½ point if it was better value for money.

Saddle Up for Burgers at the Darkhorse Saloon

I’m off school for the winter break (yeah!) and Mom didn’t have court (the county must be free of criminals for one day) so Dad arranged for us to meet up for lunch at Darkhorse Saloon in Bel Air.

Roadhouse BurgerDad dared me to have the Duke Burger (it’s huge! one of those burgers Adam Richman might eat on Man v. Food), but I think it’s too big for a kid. I ordered a Roadhouse Burger instead. That’s big enough, thanks!

The Roadhouse Burger is a 1/2 lb burger patty that is seasoned with “Texas spices” and cooked to order. I asked for mine to be cooked medium well. The burger is topped with BBQ sauce, cheddar jack cheese, crispy onion strings, and with jalapeno mayo. I ordered mine with bacon (Mmmmm… bacon!) and for once I didn’t worry about the jalapeno mayo.

I ordered my burger with hand cut fries. You can also order it with sweet potato fries, tater tots, or a side salad.

It was a pretty good burger. Certainly one of the best around Harford County. I think it would be in my Top Ten for the year. I award the burger a finger-lickin’ 8 out of 10.

I would definitely go back to Darkhorse Saloon for another burger. If you haven’t been yet then you should. I dare you to try the Duke and let me know whether you managed to eat it all!

Choosing Cheeses

Hey guys! (Oh… and girls… girls eat burgers too!) Here’s your chance to show some love for your favorite cheese.

What kind of cheese do you like on your burger?

I prefer American because it’s creamy and melts easily. My second choice would be Ye Olde Englysh Cheddar. Swiss is too salty. Pepper Jack is too peppery. Blue cheese is… blue… which is just nasty.
