September 18 is a good day - why? It's National Cheeseburger Day. Hells yeah! Margaritaville at the Horseshoe Casino invited me down to check out their latest and greatest...so I had to share them with you too!
CHEDDAR BBQ BURGER: Topped with cheddar cheese, Applewood-smoked bacon, fried onions, lettuce, and BBQ aioli. Served with a roasted jalapeño on the side.
I really liked the Cheddar BBQ. We got the burgers cooked medium and they were just right. This had piled on flavors with the bacon and fried onions but wasn't too messy that you couldn't pick up it up and eat it! Yum! I love that the buns are soft too - they're really tasty.
BLACK & BLEU BURGER: Topped with Applewood-smoked bacon, chunky bleu cheese dressing, lettuce and sliced tomato.
Next up was the Black & Bleu - I'm not a fan of bleu cheese but can handle it in small doses - my friend Lauren really likes it so it was her choice. Neither of us liked this one too much - the burger was fine but the bleu was a bit overwhelming on this. So if you like bleu cheese a LOT go for it.
VOLCANO BURGER: Topped with our volcano chili, lava cheese sauce, pickled jalapeños, guacamole and Fritos original corn chips.
Lauren talked me into this one and I'm glad she did. This sounded like it would be spicy - but it really wasn't. It was messy - as in knife and fork for sure! But it was also delicious! Every bite had something different - burger, chili, cheese sauce, guac, peppers and then fritos!!! Yum! Both of us thought this was the best one - it would be nice if it had a little more kick - but man - it was a plateful!
They also have a great patio that overlooks The Shoe where the concerts are. They had their last show of the season that night. You can get special armbands that provide free drinks and food as well as the best seats for the concert! It's a great spot! But even without concerts - the patio is really nice for lunch or dinner as well.
CHEESEBURGER IN PARADISE®: Our signature burger topped with American cheese, lettuce, sliced tomato, pickles and paradise island sauce.
Their signature burger is the Cheeseburger in Paradise - it's more of a pure cheeseburger - looks good. Their fries are great too - crisp, salty and good! One burger we didn't try was the:
RANCHO DELUXE BURGER: Topped with Monterey Jack cheese, Applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, sliced tomato, pickles and ranch dressing.
Of course - it sounds good as well - but that Volcano Burger was too much to resist!!
I hope you'll check out Margaritaville for National Burger Day - but at least get a burger somewhere today - it's really your duty as an American!
