Last Friday Ryan, Mason, Alex, and I went to NIX Burger Bar in Uptown Charlotte for dinner. Although I've had many NIX burgers in the past, I haven't done a review on them until now.
I usually stick with basic burgers for my reviews (cheese and bacon as the add-ons) but this time I decided to try something a little different.
NIX CHEESE BURGER… $8.49
Mikes’s Pimento Cheese, Crisp Bacon & Jalapeno Onion Jam, Shredded Lettuce & Tomato.
I opted for no lettuce or tomatoes and picked sweet potato fries as my side.
The burger was juicy and full of flavor. I loved the pimiento cheese and bacon as the toppings. The jalapeno onion jam was not as amazing as I would've hoped but didn't do too much damage to the burger. The sweet potato fries were super crispy, although a little too salty. My potato bun held up pretty well, unlike Ryan's bun which was really soggy by the time the server brought out our burgers.
All in all the NIX Cheeseburger was a hit and would definitely be ordered again. Cheeseburgers are the perfect pre-race meal ... I ran a 5k the following morning and placed 3rd in my age group. More on that later ...
