Mmm, That Bacon Cheeseburger Was Excellent

It had been way too long since my last bacon cheeseburger. Since I said 'had been', you can rest assured I have remedied the situation. Stopped at a local bar/restaurant this afternoon with she who must be obeyed and her mother. I ordered it pretty much the way I said I was craving one in my previous post on the subject. It was delicious. The burger fit almost all of my criteria: Medium rare, greasy, smothered with sautéed onions and melted cheese. Instead of a grilled buttered roll, it came on a lightly toasted English  muffin. Yes there were fries and a sour pickle and some coleslaw too. It was one of the better burgers I have had in years and sure hit the spot. The only thing that could have made it better would have been a good beer o wash it down but no alcohol for me for the rest of the day due to me being anesthetized to get scoped today, oh well, there is tomorrow I suppose. 

Oddly enough, the wife and mother-in-law also each had a burger. I say oddly because my wife does not usually opt for a burger but this time my craving seemed contagious and both she and her mom ordered one. They both liked theirs, I think equally as well as I liked mine. Thems was some darned good eats.

By the way, we ate at TR's Great American Restaurant (aka: TRs Pub). They have a full bar both downstairs and upstairs and seating for dining on both levels also although it's more of a bar downstairs and more of a restaurant upstairs. I usually opt to eat (and drink) downstairs like we did today. Great place, excellent service and staff, delicious food, good menu, and really nice owners.

All the best,
