I was reading Gavin's post over at Good Eat and was tempted to the dark side by him. He mentioned there was this awesome new burger called the Grandma Prime Rib Burger over at A and W. I was skeptical, but curious because he mentioned Prime Rib and Horseradish sauce.
The onion rings had loads of coating, and managed to stay crispy. These were essentially the filler where the burger came up short.
The horseradish sauce was the only thing new to fast food that I noticed. It was a good addition, and adds a sense of class to fast food. Good on A and W to do this.
The onions were large and greasy, like eating a whole onion that had been sitting in oil for too long.
As you can tell by my thumb, the burger is tiny.
The patty was moist and tasty - basically the same as the Prime Rib patties you can get at Costco, except a tad smaller. The bun was cheap and fell apart. I think if A and W wanted to make a spectacular burger, they should have at least gotten better buns, but that would probably drive the price up and people would end up either going to a real burger place or other fast food places.
Overall this new Grandma burger was small....tiny in fact, but once you stuff yourself with the onion rings and a medium soft drink, the meal itself can be filling. For $3.99 you get the burger only, and $6.99 gets you the combo. For $7, I think I can find a better meal at some HK Cafe. $4 just for the burger isn't too bad I suppose, but it really is tiny for $4.00 Not too sure if I'd get another.
