Now, there comes a time in every man's life where he reads something that makes him simultaneously ooze a strange liquid out of every orifice. This is exactly what happened to me when I read the description of the 'Up On The Ridge' burger on my first of many visits to Buntsy's. The first ingredient alone was enough to make me cry; Jim Beam brown sugar glazed bacon was printed boldly on the menu. The bacon was followed by grilled onions, pepper jack cheese, and Sweet Dixie BBQ. After ordering a plate of nachos that was bigger than my abdomen, I waited patiently for the burger to arrive, salivating over the thought of the glazed bacon and barbecue combination.
The moment that the kind and efficient waitress put the burger down on the table while also topping off my Pepsi was a moment I'll never forget. The smell, incredible. The sight, indescribable. And, the first bite? I blacked out and woke up the next day thinking it was all a sweet sweet dream. It was, without a doubt, one of, if not the best burger I've ever had in my life. I've traveled the entire country, and I've eaten more burgers than I can count. But, right here at my friendly neighborhood Buntsy's is where I found the best one in the country. It didn't empty my wallet. Instead, it simply filled my stomach and my hope for the future of burgers.
Thank you, Buntsy's.
