Brown’s Hickory Burger and Denny’s Milkshake
Brown’s Social House East for the hickory burger was my pick this week
Appearances were great as the burger came in its own paper pouch with the slogan “Let’s Get Messy!”
The burger was solid, not one of the top 3 we have had but it held its own
Bacon was good , slightly undercooked but tasty. Bun was fantastic and the way the melted cheese wrapped it’s body around the burger was mouth-watering.
The only issues we as a group had was that it was slightly overcooked and the patty was too thin.
Danny Y and Cleazy got a side of gravy for their fries and they took the slogan “Let’s Get Messy!” to a whole other level. At one point as Danny Y wiped gravy from his eyebrows I believe I saw Cleaz, who had run out of fries, sneak his truck keys in for a quick dip.
All in all a good experience. A good but not great burger with gravy so good you would consider dipping anything in it (use your imagination)
Avg Burger Score: 38/50
With a solid burger score I was looking to contend in this round but quickly my hopes were dashed. I was wanting to take us to Polar Palace (this is where not being from Regina hurt me) but soon realized it was closed for the season (had no idea it was not a sit down establishment). The damn internet stated it was open so I ran the risk and drove the boys over there only to be crushed by the darkened Open sign. Jason cackled at me and Danny Y shook his head in frustration so I had to think fast.
All of a sudden the only thought I had was “Denny’s has shakes!”
I threw a hail mary but alas, it was knocked down at the goal line.
I ordered my favourite peanut butter chocolate , Cleaz went chocolate and Danny Y went with his heart and gleefully giggled “Oreo please”
Minutes later the waitress came back and informed Danny they were out of Oreo so he went with chocolate and I knew I had lost my boy DY.
The shakes came and more than passed the eyeball test.
whip cream … check
metal tin with extra shake….. check
long spoon for tin to keep hands clean….. check
I believed I had a shot…. until DY and JC took a sip and shook me off like a clean-up hitter being signalled by the third base coach to bunt.
They were disappointed in the taste and the thickness factor was just north of watery,
However my shake was delicious as I believe my peanut butter saved mine as it added thickness and taste the other guys were robbed of.
I gave high grades as I felt my shake was in the top 5 we had sampled to this point (not top 3 but definitely top 5)
I did not win this round as Cleaz is the first back to back winner
I feel Denny’s could get a better ranking so you may see them again in our Redemption Round
Avg Shake Score: 34.83
Overall Avg Score : 72.83
Official Winner: JC
Stay tuned for JC’s Round choice
