The Lady Hampshire

| 91 Parramatta Road, Camperdown NSW 2050 |

The Lady Hampshire Verdict: 8/10

Beef Burger: 9.1/10

Chicken Burger: 6/10

Sides: 6/10

So why the Lady Hampshire? He says: Great pub to drink at and dog friendly. Loved the burgers at their other joint (The Lord Gladstone) and hence was pumped to finally get into the bad boys here. She says: This is another great pub from the guys that brought you the Lord Gladstone. Like its older brother, this place has good vibes and a “no gronks” policy. They also serve house smoked meats on a Sunday (the house smoker out the back so if you sit outside, you can smell the smoke while you eat and you may go home smelling like you've been camping). Also, we brought the dog and we  outside, which means you won't get a peek here at the cool reno job they have done inside. Worth a visit and don't miss the awesome mural featuring all your Australian icon faves.   What did you order?
  • The Camperdowner Burger - $22
  • The Fried Chicken Burger - $17
  • Buttermilk Fried Chicken Wings - $18
Tell us about the Camperdowner Burger? He says: Fuck yeah. A melt in you mouth patty surrounded by double American cheddar, streaky bacon, onion rings, fried egg, grilled pineapple, beetroot, tomato, coral lettuce, dill pickle, and a sensational burger sauce on a soft steamed milk bun. This was a monster! Think your classic American cheeseburger walked into a bar and met and old school Fish N Chip style Australian classic with the lot. She saysGreat burger. I am generally a bit suss on burgers “with the lot”, the massive proportions usually make them more trouble to eat than they are worth, but this was epic greatness. Perfect proportions of each of the many inclusions, good sauce ratio and great burger bun. I would go back for this – but only on an empty stomach because it was huge. So then, how did you find the Fried Chicken Burger? She says:  We were in quite early on a Sunday so it could have just been like when you get the first coffee of the day and it’s not quite right, but this chicken burger wasn’t the best. With chicken thigh, American cheddar, bacon, lettuce and Sriracha mayo, it had all the makings of a great burg – but the chook was pretty dry and it was totally overshadowed by the greatness of the Camperdowner. I think this might be worth trying again on another day to compare. He says: Might have just been an off moment in the kitchen with this one but my fried chicken was 80% batter 20% chicken. T’was also a little dry. Now, what about the sides? She says:  The chicken wings weren’t my favourite but the chips were great - standard pub fries, no bells, no whistles done well. He says: The fries were standard but delicious nonetheless. Wasn’t a massive fan of the seasoning/batter on the fried chicken wings. Might just be a personal taste thing there.

Bar Ume

  dsc02724

Bar Ume verdict: 9.5/10 

Beef Burger: 9.5/10

Prawn Burger: 9.1/10

Sides: 9.5/10

  So why Bar Ume? She says:  We almost ate here a bunch of times. Once we rolled up to one of their pop ups once and waited in line. But we were pretty quick to decide that our hangovers took precedence over their delicious looking burgs so we bailed after about 5 minutes. Then these guys actually invited us to do a review when they opened up at Barangaroo (WE ARE IMPORTANT BLOGGERS AND VERY POPULAR) and we spoke about going here maybe once a week for about 3 months but never made it in. After that we'd waited so long it felt weird demanding free burgers, so we just went in and bought some one day. It was worth the wait and every hard earned cent. dsc02722 He says: This had been on our radar since they started doing the pop ups. Excitement levels regarding this place were at an all time high. It was also Saturday and we were famished and hung. What did you order?
  • The Bacon Cheese Burger - $14.80
  • The Ebi Burger - $15.50
  • The Koji Fried Chicken- $9.50
  • Hot Chips With Umami Salt - $4.80
dsc02706   Tell us about the Bacon Cheese Burger? He says: This belongs in Sydney’s burger royalty. It’s hard to fin fault with anything here. The pattie is off the charts perfection form the bottom up and it’s found it’s perfect partner with the spectacular UME sauce that lives up to its ‘special’ namesake. Cue crispy bacon, rice vinegar pickles, American cheese and onions and you have perfect show. Can’t wait for the next time (will be defs tapping a double). dsc02718 She saysThis was a very special burger. I was a massive fan. I couldn’t recommend it more and find it pretty hard to find any faults with this soft-buned beauty. dsc02704So then, how did you find the Ebi Burger? She says: Ordering this felt like a risk – I mean, a prawn burger? It could have been horrible but it was absolutely brilliant. The textures in this one were really key to its success. It had a great crumbed prawn pattie that had firmness and even a bit of bounce, without being too chewy. This teamed with the crunchy, fresh cabbage and silky, tangy mayo was magic. dsc02715He says:  Think this may be the first prawn burger we’ve notched up for the blog but on the strength of this one am hoping it’s not the last. The prawn pattie was genius and so very well suited to the Japanese tartare and shredded cabbage. A unique and deeply satisfying morsel of goodness this one.   dsc02697 Now, what about the sides? She says: Umami salt is like a dream that I never want to wake up from. I would like it on all the things from now on. The fried chicken absolutely owned and the sauces were perfect. Another smash hit for Ume. dsc02698 He says: The Koji fried chicken is up with there with Butter as being in my favourite fried chicken delights in Sydney. Karaage in style with a perfect batter and irresistible when dunked in mayo. The chips with umami salt were outstanding. In umami salt, chicken salt must now bow in deference.

Fritzenberger (Brisbane, QLD)

52 Petrie Terrace, Brisbane, QLD, 4000

Fritzenberger Verdict: 8.5/10dsc022031

Beef Burger: 9/10

Chicken Burger: 8.5/10

Sides: 8/10

  So why Fritzenburger? He says: A Brisbane jaunt in honour of my darling Mum’s 60th birthday brought us here the day after the party (and all the party drinks). Am a big fan of the Harajuku Gyoza restaurants and this is the same team’s take on burger goodness. dsc02201 She says: This was our saviour on an extremely hot day in Brissy. The lay out here is cool, front bar (with air-con) leads out to an open back area which, while too hot to eat in when we went, looks like a great place for a group of people and a bunch of burgs/beers. dsc022051 What did you order?
  • The Fritzen Burger with Maple Syrup Candied Bacon c$13
  • The Chicken Burger - $12
  • The Loaded Frites - $10
dsc02213 Tell us about the Fritzen Burger? He says: Great Burger. The patty melted in your mouth and had the perfect partner in the sensational Fritzensauce. The addition of the Maple Syrup Candied bacon should be made mandatory. The bun was a little on the dry side but it would take a whole lot more than that to bring the quality down on this little guy. dsc02224 She says: You could tell by looking at this cutie it was going to be good. I didn't mind the bun and I liked how soft it was and how much it compressed when you bit in. The star of this really was that candied bacon -  love that salty sweet! dsc022191 So then, how did you find the Chicken Burger? She says: The chicken looks pretty thick but it wasn't too much. Nice crispy lettuce, fresh tomato, spicy sauce and a good hunk of american cheese meant this was a solid burger choice. Juicy chicken thighs with spicy mayo are a perfect pair.  Would eat again. dsc022221 He says: Top stuff once more. I’d normally prefer my fried chicken fillet to be of the breast variety but the thighs got it done here and made me look like a fool. The spicy mayo lifted everything up another notch as well. dsc022081 Now, what about the sides? He says: These were as good as they sounded on the page: French fries loaded with cheese sauce, candied bacon, green onions, Fritzensauce and Twisties salt. YES, TWISTIES SALT! She says:  Seconded.

The Chippo Hotel

81-97 Abercrombie Street, Chippendale, NSW, 2000

The Chippo Hotel: 9/10dsc02658 

Beef Burger: 9.4/10

Chicken Burger: 9.3/10

Sides: 9/10

  So why The Chippo Hotel? He says: Hangover + convenient location + the menu looked to be a cracker = Saturday feasting at the Chippo Hotel with my favourite person in the world. Side note: this also used to my local way back when it was less ‘hip’ and known as the Shannon Hotel so I was intrigued by it’s recent makeover. dsc02660 She says: They have really done this place up – I’ve only been there once before, during the Beams Festival and it has changed heaps. Has a great outside area and I reckon would be great for a big group What did you order?
  • The Chippo Burger with Bacon - $21
  • The Southern Fried Chicken Burger - $18
  • Popcorn Chicken - $14
  • Mac & Cheese - $12
dsc02666 Tell us about the Chippo Burger? He says: This was superb. A soft milk bun cradled a perfect patty with American cheese, lettuce, tomato and a heap of onion. I was suspect on the mountain of onion upon arrival but my fears were allayed after one mouthful as it just worked. The sauce on this bad boy was also a winner. dsc02682 She says: Hot, tasty and delicious – there isn’t really much you could fault with this one. Great sauces, great melted cheese, even the onion worked. I was very happy with this. The patty maybe could have been a bit saltier but it was still delicious and the cheese added the required salt. As I said, very little you could dislike about this burger. I highly recommend.   dsc02665 So then, how did you find the Southern Fried Burger? He says:  Again an absolute ripper of a burger. The southern fried chicken is the stuff dreams are made of and I need more of the Louisiana dipping sauce in my life. My only quibble would be I don’t really go for tomato on a fried chicken burger and didn’t think it worked here but each to their own on that one I guess. dsc02679 She says: Another awesome burger. Everything just worked really well together, like music that just sounds right. The chicken was beautifully cooked inside and retained its crunch even with lashings of delicious sauce. He said He didn’t like the tomato but it worked fine on my half – maybe He just got a dud slice. dsc02675 Now, what about the sides? She says:  Like the rest of the meal the sides were killer. Pretty standard fries but done well. The popcorn chicken was of the same ilk as the chicken on the burger, juicy with a great crunchy batter and served with that Louisiana dipping sauce. The mac and cheese was up there – the bits with melted cheese on them were prefect, but without the melted cheese, one could argue that it wasn’t salty enough. But overall they were really really good! dsc02672 He says: I’d happily christen the popcorn chicken here as being the best of it’s kind. My stomach was packed to the seams halfway through it but I couldn’t look myself in the mirror if I let any of it go to waste (especially when it was drenched in that Louisiana dipping sauce). The Mac & Cheese was solid but needed a little salt (or bacon would do the trick!).dsc02686 || 81-97 Abercrombie Street, Chippendale, NSW, 2000 || www.thechippohotel.com.au || (02) 93105133 II HOURS: Open Monday to Sunday 12pm – 10pm

Bernie’s Diner

|| 402 - 404 Argyle Street, Moss Vale, NSW, 2577 ||

dsc02092Bernie’s Diner Verdict: 6/10

Beef Burger: 7/10 Chicken Burger: 3/10 Sides: 7.5/10 So why Bernie’s Diner?     He says: A Southern Highlands sojourn beckoned and we would be batshit crazy if we didn’t check out what the area had to offer burger wise. According to the interwebs this was the spot.dsc02091 She says: When we go away, anything from a longish drive to an overnight stay, He always manages to find somewhere cool to get a burger. This place is great looking from the outside, old-school diner vibe and easy to find. What did you order? The Bernie’s Burger - $13 The Vegas Baby Burger - $11 Cheese Fries- $8 Vanilla Malt Thickshake - $8 dsc02102 Tell us about the Bernie’s Burger? He says: Unlike the immaculate 50’s diner style architecture we were surrounded by in Bernie’s their namesake burger borrowed from the legends that are the classic Australian local milk bar/fish and chips shop burger. Think burger with the lot (including the quintessential stalwarts, bacon, egg, pineapple and cheese). Thoroughly enjoyable old school goodness here. dsc02110 She saysHaving totally converted to pineapple on burgers, I was pretty excited to give this one a go. This burger was huge, had everything in it and would be totally passable for a hangover cure. If I was going to be picky I would mention the meat, which was a bit overcooked and oily.  But the cheese on this burger was plentiful and well melted, which makes such a difference and while it was not 100 percent my thing, I can see this burger having many loyal fans. dsc02108 So then, how did you find the Vegas Baby Burger? She says:  Its been a while since I have had chicken burger that didn’t blow me away and this burger left me a bit cold. The chicken inside seemed like it might have been pre-batered and frozen. It was super tasteless and could have been a fish finger. The lettuce did have a good crunch, I dig the shredded lettuce on a chicken burg but the cheese wasn’t melted properly and the mayonnaise was wrong tasting, it had that weird texture of the stuff they use in the RSL.  I found it really hard to find positives with this guy. dsc02113 He says: Unfortunately this wasn’t my thing. Main issue would be they use a mayonnaise like the ones I used to fear at the school tuckshop (definitely not whole egg style). The chicken here also didn’t quite live up to expectations. dsc02099 Now, what about the sides? She says: The cheese fries are a thing of beauty, they are essentially just really hot chips with chese mixed thorugh to melt. They are rich as a social influencer at a yoga festival though so I would limit yourself to a few bites. Oh yeah – the thickshake, it was killer. I hogged the whole thing and it was worth it. dsc02096 He says: The cheese fries were worth the trip alone and were nothing more than a generous serve of golden fries coated in a vat of melted cheese. The thickshake was also a cracker. || 402-404 Argyle Street, Moss Vale, NSW, 2577 || www.berniesdiner.com.au|| HOURS: Open Seven Days 6am – 10pm  

Brooklyn Depot

dsc02058Brooklyn Depot Verdict: 8/10 

Beef Burger: 8/10

Chicken Burger: 7.5/10

Sides: 8.5/10

So why Brooklyn Depot? She says: He is just so good at this. I feel like I should have a permanent answer to this question that I cut and paste every time that says “He found this joint. He is a genius at burger stalking. I honestly believe He could find good burgers even if the internet didn’t exist”. dsc02061 He says:  Convenient location and a great looking (American styled) menu made us heed the call to Brooklyn Depot. dsc02062 What did you order?
  • The Depot Burger - $16
  • The Chicky Babe Burger - $14
  • Pimped Chicken Winglets - $10
  • Garbage Fries - $12
  • Maclovin Balls - $14
  • Gringo Shake - $8
dsc02079 Tell us about the Depot Burger? He says:  I’m always appreciating some double patty action so was pretty stoked with this one. Unfortunately the patties definitely erred on the overcooked side of things. Massive fan of the addition of pineapple, hickory smoked bacon and a wonderful Depot special sauce. If only there was a bit more pink in that patty. dsc02086 She saysI only ever order the double if my arm has been twisted (or if it has been so long between doubles that I feel bad). It really relies on the meat, the quality and how well it was cooked. Here the quality was pretty good but as he says it was a bit overcooked. Despite that I liked this burger, more so once I removed the second patty. And let it be known, I am a total pineapple convert – and with the bacon and the cheese, oh lordy! dsc02075 So then, how did you find the Chicky Babe Burger? He says: A solid burger with on point chicken, slaw and chipotle mayo. Not really a fan of the so called ‘cowboy caviar’ as its black bean flavour was a little jarring when combined with everything else here. dsc02083 She says: I liked this burger – the beans were a little jarring but over all, crispy chook and cheese with coleslaw, always gets me. dsc02068 Now, what about the sides? He says: The winglets (we chose spicy buffalo sauce) were top notch, the garbage fries tasty as fuck, maclovin balls had their moments but were a little dull, and the Gringo shake was as delicious as it sounded on the menu. dsc02071 She says:  The sides were super trashy and would be awesome to share with a big group – we were massive pigs and got heaps to ourselves. dsc02065   dsc02067 || 65 Holt Street, Surry Hills, NSW, 2010 || http://www.brooklyndepot.com.au/ || HOURS: Open seven days 11am until late

Big Bunz Matraville frontBig Bunz verdict: 9/10

Beef Burger: 9/10

Chicken Burger: 9/10

Sides: 8.5/10

  So why Big Bunz? She says: Finding this place was all Him (with a little help from Dr Internet, I imagine). We got a puppy (yay) and the puppy got stung in the eye by a bee (less yay), so we wanted somewhere we could take said Pup because he had to wear one of those shame buckets and we felt bad. Ever resourceful, He came up with this place. They can’t let pups inside but the pooch could sit at the door while we ate at the closest table. (If you look closely in the photo above you can see him by the door on the left  - he sat there, while we ate, and made friends with every person who sat a the bus stop.) Big Bunz Matraville inside He says: A late night poker foray bestowed upon me a malignant hangover that whose only cure could surely be burger goodness. With the tremendous She as my chauffeur we arrived in Matraville ready to get amongst some Big Bunz glory. dsc01952 What did you order?
  • The Feast Burger - $8.50
  • The Southern Fried Ranch Burger - $9.50
  • Southern Fried Chicken Strips - $9
  • Friez - $4.50
  • Onion Rings - $5.50
  • Big Bunz Shake - $7.50
Big Bunz Matraville Feast burger Tell us about the Feast Burger? He says: This was fucking delicious! A soft milk bun (you can choose your bun here) cradled a tasty and well cooked Angus beef patty, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion pickles and a delectable “Feast” sauce. Like a fast food burger but with bang on ingredients and preparation. My only issue would be the Spanish onion but that’s a personal gripe. My first time in Matraville has come up trumps. Big Bunz Matraville feast burger cross section She says: The cross section photo of this one is lets it down  and while here it looks like some kind of school-cafeteria grey meat fiesta, it actually tasted much, much better. As he says – bloody good. Fresh, tasty and right on point. This is a burger you would wake up craving. dsc01972 So then, how did you find the Southern Fried Ranch Burger? She says: The chicken in this bad boy tasted how you think KFC will taste when you see the ads – crispy, slightly spiced and delicious (which is not how KFC tastes IRL IMHO). The chook and the sauces were ample, which is the way to our hearts. Bacon, mayo, fresh salad bits - great work Big Bunz! dsc01975 He says:  Perhaps I’m prone to hyperbole or maybe it was the hangover talking but this was another burger highlight for the year. The fried chicken was close to perfect in every department and when mingled with bacon, cheese and a cracker of a ranch sauce my Saturday morning hangover woes may have just found a panacea. dsc01964 Now, what about the sides? She says:  These onion rings were up there with the best I've had. Perhaps because they were so batter-y that you could hardly taste the onion and they were crunchy as all hell (I am not a huge onion ring fan - the less onion you can taste the better in my book). The rest of the sides were pretty good,  the chicken strips were just a bit rich for me and the marshmallows in the thick shake has a really strange musty taste but the shake itself was thick and delicious - the majority of it was gone about 3 minutes after it hit the table. And while the chips were pretty standard, large and soft, the sauces that came with the them were off the chain. dsc01974 He says: All the sides here were superb with a special shout out going to the chicken strips (whose leftovers got me through the following evening) and the sauces that accompanied them. I feel like waving a lighter in the air in deference of the day Big Bunz saved my life. dsc01981 dsc01966

Lamb Burger: 8.5/10

Chicken Burger: 8.5/10

Sides: 6/10

  So why The Kepos Street Kitchen? She says This was another of His suggestions. I didn’t realise that it was a fancy restaurant and when we turned up I have to admit I sulked a bit because I was sure they couldn’t do great burgers if they weren’t in our favourite American style. Oh, how wrong I was. DSC01929 He says: This has been on our list for yonks and looked to be a nice switch up from the American diner styled burgers we’d been scoffing down of late. What did you order?
  • The Lamb Kefta Burger - $18
  • The Southern Fried Chicken Burger - $18
  • Vanilla Milkshake- $7
DSC01918 Tell us about the Lamb Kefta Burger? He says:  They said the meat on this was served medium rare but it was definitely on the rare side of things (it was kind of like a burger tartare!) which is something I’m not used to but adapted to quite quickly. The harissa relish and kohlrabi slaw further heaved this little middle eastern inspired delight into enjoyablility. DSC01926 She saysThis burger was really special and very different. It WAS super rare, like He says, when I ate it it was almost like a juicy steak tartare on bread (which I realise sounds gross but which was actually really great). Not for the faint of heart. But the freshness of the apples and mint was perfect with the richness of the lamb. It was a really great burger. Not our usual style but delicious. DSC01909 So then, how did you find the Southern Fried Chicken Burger? She says: This was a massive burg, and the mayo was bright yellow. I was almost expecting it to have that earthy turmeric taste. But it was magic, juicy chicken, crunchy schnitzel batter and lots of sauce. Another smashing burg. DSC01920 He says: This bad boy is listed on the menu as a sandwich so I took the liberty of renaming it for them. A generous couple of chunks of juicy schnitzel make friends here with coleslaw and chermoula mayo. It’s delicious but lost points for arriving at the table strangely cold (as if it had been sitting on the counter too long) and the brioche bun was a touch on the dry side. DSC01919 Now, what about the sides? She says: The sides were a bit meh, as He says below this isn’t really a place where sides are going to kick any goals. The chips were good, fat and juicy, but I wasn’t super unimpressed with the milkshake. He says: This is a café (the other stuff on the menu looked tremendous) so it’s hard to get too grumpy on them regarding their lack of traditional burgering feast sides. The fries served with the burger were standard but tasty if, again unfortunately, a little on the cold side upon arrival. The milkshake needed a whole lot more sweet syrup to stand up to my tastes but each to their own.

Bangbang Cafe verdict: 9/10

Beef Burger: 9.2/10

Chicken Burger: 9/10

Sides: 7/10

  So why The Bangbang Cafe? She says He was having a rough morning so we decided to stay close-ish to home and try a burg that He has been talking about for ages. The photos of the burgers here looked just like the kind of thing required to feed this monstrous hangover. DSC01873 He says: After demolishing schnitzels and way too many beers the night before my spectacular love, She, decided to drive my sorry hung-over ass over to Bangbang in Surry Hills. Turned out to be a great call. DSC01874 What did you order?
  • The All Star Burger with Bacon - $17
  • The Fried Chicken Burger - $13.90
  • Chocolate Milkshake- $5
DSC01890 Tell us about the All Star Burger? He says: Cheezus this was good! A terrific wagyu patty mingled with smoked cheddar, lettuce, tomato, added bacon and a mind blowingly good Bangbang sauce. My only complaint would be the bun had a touch of the ‘Sunday stales’ but that’s a minor quibble.  Seriously that sauce was truly banging (yeah I did it, soz)! DSC01899 She saysThis was simple and delicious. Great tender meat with lots of sauce, the whole thing was really tasty.  held together well, the cheese was melted to perfection.  You should try these burgers, they are special. DSC01884 So then, how did you find the Fried Chicken Burger? She says: Wow. A very, very nice burger. The fried chicken was key, and there was just enough  of it. It was tender and moist and would have been awesome even by itself. Double cheese, crunchy coleslaw, lettuce and tomato topped with generous lashings of  saucy-mayo goodness. The filling worked perfectly with the crunchy chicken. Very solid work. DSC01894 He says: Really fucking great hangover tonic this one as well with the stars being the buttermilk chicken and the Sriracha sauce coleslaw. The bun had the same issue but the once again the Bangbang sauce smashed it out of the park. DSC01889 Now, what about the sides? She says: The chips were perfectly suitable, nothing special but just right. Macca’s style with lots of salt. The milkshake was the only let down of this whole meal. I am not sure if it was on the menu. Because of his fairly average feels, He just ordered it (said like it was his dying wish) so perhaps the waitress just whipped it up to try and cheer him up. Anyway had a bit of the hot-chocolate-powder-mixed-with-milk vibe that my ma used to try and sneak past us as kid. No mum, milkshakes have lots and lots of ice cream and are made in a blender! DSC01882 He says: Not much by way of the sides but the fries served with the burger (great value for money here) were on point and a force to be reckoned with when doused in aioli. The shake was more of an iced chocolate than a milkshake but the sugar hit still sated my post inebriation thirst.

Beef Burger: 8.5/10

Chicken Burger: 8.5/10

Sides: 8.5/10

  So why Burgers Anonymous? He says:  A long gestating proposal to share a burger with the awesome Bianca from For Food’s Sake resulted at us hitting up Burger’s Anonymous. DSC01810   She says: Like he says, it was almost the burger date that never happened. But then it did, and it was a heap of fun. DSC01783 What did you order?
  • The Eazy-E Burger with Crack Bacon - $14
  • The Chooklyn Burger with cheese - $15
  • Maple Mayhem Chicken Wings - $8
  • Loaded Fries - $6
DSC01792 Tell us about the Eazy-E Burger? He says:  This was great without being outstanding. Pretty close to an upmarket Hungry Jacks burger in taste. I’d prefer a softer bun and the patty a little more on the pink side but these are minor quibbles. The BA sauce raised the game tenfold and you’d be a total dick if you didn’t add crack bacon to this bad boy. DSC01803 She saysPretty solid burger, not outstanding but if I lived close by this would definitely be one of my staples. The insides were great but I think the bun let it down. I wasn’t crazy about the bun on either of these burgers, it was perhaps a bit too ry? DSC01798 So then, how did you find the Chooklyn Burger? She says: That piece of chicken was huge, and cooked really well! This burger was easily my favourite, nice crisp salad, great warm cheese  and tonnes of sauce. Again, a solid burger that you would go back for. DSC01809 He says:  A chicken schnitzel styled patty that did wonders when combined that BA sauce and sweet BBQ. Again a bit of a bun issue here but damn if it was freaking delicious. DSC01788 Now, what about the sides? She says: The chicken wings were great - sticky and sweet but with nice moist chicken inside. The fries were decadent and delicious however not for the faint hearted (they would be great friends with a hangover.) DSC01800 He says: I was a massive fan of both of these. The loaded fries had the aforementioned bang on BA sauce (seriously you dunk anything in this and it would taste delicious) with Crack Bacon and I’m a fan of a sweet and spicy combo when it comes to wings these were right up my alley.
