After being locked in the house for days due to some snow and ice in Charlotte, it was a special treat to have lunch at a restaurant. We headed somewhere super close to us, Rusty's Deli & Grille. We had eaten here before but I don't think I had ordered a burger. Since Mason was ordering a cheeseburger off the kid's menu I figured I would order one of their burgers as well for a quick review.
The "Gourmet Burger" is:
1/3 of pound hand pattied, fresh, never frozen ground beef with sautéed onions, spicy mustard, ketchup, mayo, lettuce and tomatoes, for $6.50 with cheese
I asked for my burger no tomatoes and lettuce and I think the mustard was missing as well, although it was not missed.
The sautéed onions were a nice surprised underneath the melted American cheese. The burger was flame grilled and very juicy. The bun was a sesame seed bun, sturdy enough to hold the burger.
Although the patty was not overly seasoned it had a nice "meat" flavor and the grill definitely helped amp up the flavor. Fries were an additional $2.25 for an order and weren't anything special ... probably frozen at some point prior to frying.
All in all it was a pretty tasty lunch, although slightly more expensive than I would ordinarily spend for such a common burger. Loved hitting up a local spot and supporting the community though!
