For serious burger lovers, you have to visit 8 Cuts Burger Blends. You can choose from the burger selection or let your imagination help you create your own burger masterpiece.
It’s called 8 Cuts Burger Blends because their burger patties are made of ground beef sliced from eight different premium cuts.
During my first visit, I was adventurous and created my own burger. Here are the steps:
1. Choose your bun: sesame, brioche, kaiser
2. Choose your toppings: fresh red tomatoes, white onions, crisp lollo rossa lettuce, pickles, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise
3. What’s your beef? Choose from the house ground custom patty blends:
– The House Blend: short rib + rib eye
– The Beef Bomb: chuck + short rib
– The Steak Cut: sirloin + chuck
– The Big Game: hanger + brisket
– The Ox Blend: flank + oxtail + rib eye
4. Add more cheese, sauce and toppings from their selection
This was what I had:
patty: house blend
toppings: tomatoes, white onions, lettuce, pickles, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise
additional toppings: bleu cheese sauce and truffle creamed cheese
I enjoyed this a lot, especially the bleu cheese and creamed cheese. It’s very heavy. I think this could be shared.
The second time I went here, I had one of their signature burgers, the Q-Daddy. That’s a quarter-pounder ox blend patty of flank, oxtail and rib eye with yellow cheddar, onion tanglers, crisp bacon strips, iceberg lettuce, tomato, jalapeno ranch and sweetly spiced BBQ sauce all on a sesame seed bun. It was big, making it a challenge for me to get a big bite. I had to slice the goodness with a bread knife and use my fork.
For my third visit, I had the Bleu Burger. It’s now my favorite. I love bleu cheese and Bleu Burger has bleu cheese sauce and bleu cheese crumble and more.
The kitchen area is see-thru so you can be entertained watching how these gourmet delights are created.
Their onion rings are a must. They’re crispy and barbecue flavored.
The Good Ol’ Hot Fried Wings are delicious. They’re crunchy, sweet and spicy.
For the drinks, I found the Red Velvet Caked Shake very interesting. It’s the red velvet cake blended into a drink. It’s like drinking my dessert! It’s very heavy.
Now for their real desserts. I tasted three. They call these Dig Deep Desserts. I think this is because you just don’t eat the top part first from the glass. You have to dig deep. Get some from the bottom part and some from the top so you can enjoy the flavors.
Topping my list is the Molten Chocolate Bottoms. On top you have the sweet part, but at the bottom you have the dark chocolate taste. So I dug deep and got some from the bottom with my spoon, and I also had some from the top. Enjoy the mix of the sweet and creamy from above and the bitter dark chocolate from below. It’s a must for chocolate lovers.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but another reason I keep coming back to this place is their unbelievable service and rapport with guests. I have no idea how they train the staff but it makes me feel at home.
