Date Night: Burgers And Brews At Del Frisco's Grille
We're pretty spoiled having The Street just a short drive down the road from us. It's given us more restaurant options, plus the ability to make regular stops into Pottery Barn and Lululemon. One of the restaurants I love over there (that I've written about before) is Del Frisco's Grille. Unlike Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse down at the Seaport, a spot I find best suited for celebrating special occasions, Del Frisco's Grille has a more casual vibe and atmosphere. It's the kind of place you can stop into just to grab a bite to eat, no advance planning or special occasion needed (well, maybe a little advance planning to get a reservation on a weekend).
After work last Wednesday, Jeff and I headed over to check out the new Burgers and Brews Combo. When you order the combo, you get your choice of any draft beer, the Grille Prime Cheeseburger, and fries for $17.50.
We started off with the brews: I went with Sam Adams OctoberFest (it is the season) and Jeff had UFO White.
And then we dug into the burgers and fries. The Grille Prime Cheeseburger comes with double patties, lettuce, tomato, red onion, sloppy sauce, and pickles. Jeff got his with just cheese and red onion and paired it with sea salt and Parmesan fries.
I got my burger with everything on it (go big or go home, right?) and decided to try the sweet potato fries. (How cute is that little ketchup bottle, by the way?)
The sweet potato fries were awesome, but Jeff's sea salt and Parmesan fries kind of blew them away. How could they not with all that wonderful salty cheesiness all over them? They were also on the crispy side, while the sweet potato fries were softer.
I definitely think I made the better choice with the burger though. The pickles and sloppy sauce are a must in my opinion.
While we had considered getting appetizers along with the combo, by the time we were done, we were glad we'd skipped them. The Burgers and Brews combo was more than enough food. We left full and both noted that the burgers were really good. Not all restaurants do a good burger, but this one was nicely seasoned and had a soft, squishy bun -- just what I love. It's nice to know we have a quick and easy, affordable dinner option just down the road for those times when we don't feel like cooking or want a laid-back night out (or stayed at Pottery Barn too long!).
Have you tried the Grille Prime Cheeseburger at Del Frisco's Grille yet?
This meal was complimentary. As always, all opinions are my own.
