Kincaid’s Fish, Chop and Steakhouse. Phoenix, Arizona
Signature Chophouse Burger: All natural handformed 10 ounce beef patty, with smoked bacon, Boursin cheese and caramelized onions
This is a guest review by my friend Christine, another burger aficionado. Probably a bigger lover of burgers then myself given that she ordered a burger at a steakhouse. I had the ribeye. So this is her review:
A disappointing 6.5/10. The burger had no flavour. Christine ordered the burger well done. We had a discussion on the merits of well done vs pink in the middle med rare. What can I say, Christine is still young, she’ll come around one day. And what was up with that big glob of cheese sitting on top of the burger? Christine took it off the burger to make room for the mushrooms, fried onions and other condiments that were spread out around the plate. I was actually looking at the presentation, thinking, WT..
I forgot to ask if she would order the burger again. My guess is no. From what I saw, I wouldn’t. Dissapointing.
By the way, my 20 oz bone in Ribeye was pretty good. Not spectacular. Above average. Maybe a 7.5/10. It sounded better on the menu: We proudly serve Creekstone Farms' premium Black Angus beef, corn fed and aged 28 days for flavor and tenderness. All steaks are grilled and seasoned with our custom rub, then topped with our steakhouse butter. Served with crispy buttermilk onion strings and red jacket mashed potatoes.
I do appreciate the fact that Creekstone farms raises natural beef, no antibiotics no hormones. I’d come back for the steak just because of that.
