Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S 2012 Fall Food Travel Log Big Nick’s Edition!!! Part II
In the previous post I showed the two burgers I selected for my consumptive pleasure from the “World Famous” Big Nick’s Burger Joint and Pizza Joint.
The final cost for my carnivore treats came out to be $29.09 for two above average sized burgers and one side order of waffle fries. Were they worth that price of admission? Here’s the review. My first bite into the enormous Sumo Cheeseburger instantly awoke a memory of some of the best hamburgers I’d ever had as a child from a burger place called Burger Barn or something to that effect. As soon as I savored the sumptuousness of this heavenly burger my tongue immediately said 100% Angus Steer Beef is my favorite beef of all beef period!!! Even without adding any salt or pepper or seasoning of any kind the flavor and taste of this burger is outstanding in my opinion.
There was a char on the burger that married unbelievably well with the taste and texture of my well done Angus. Wowza!!! The melted American cheese had the customary silky texture and slightly salty taste I expected as it cascaded down the length of the Angus beef and onto my tongue. I chewed slow enough to savor the simple complexity of that beef and cheese with ketchup only making my joy from eating this burger grow with every passing bite, chew, and swallow.
Bite after delicious mouth pleasing bite I went at the Sumo Cheeseburger.
After a few moments of chewing and savoring the taste of that good sumo I continued the journey the Sumo was taking me on. I decided to take a peak under the bun and below is what I found.
While the sight of the well cooked monster burger is visually appealing I knew that ketchup would only enhance the experience and so…
Reassembling the master piece I proceeded to continue on with the procession of 100%Angus Steer, American cheese, ketchup and bun into my stomach. Songs of contentment began to fill my belly.
The following ensued as at a certain point without realizing it I was over taken with the desire to eat a bit quicker in order to finish off the Sumo before the full signals from the stomach would begin registering in my brain.
I decided to add some white corn tortilla chips to my burger to further enhance my experience as I felt a little jolt of texture contrast would help push me on to finish off this great cheese burger.
In sum the Sumo burger so far is the best tasting burger I’ve had in a long time bringing with it nostalgic memories of great burger eating days gone by. Next time I’m going to jump even more out of the box and try their stuffed Gorgonzola burger. I’ll have to ask if they ever consider making a burger even bigger than the Sumo or better yet a stuffed Sumo burger ala the “Jucy Lucy Burger”. Stay tuned for the conclusion of this review in Part III when I finish off the Kobe Beef Cheeseburger. Tell next time this has been another 2012 Fall Food Travel Log of THEJNSREPORT Big Nick’s Edition!!!
