Bravo Burgers

After having recently moved into new digs, Bravo Burgers now occupies an old Burger King location. It is very attractively decorated and has a new, clean look.

The curly fries ($2.29) are cooked to a nice crispy finish without a hint of being oily or greasy. The inside is tender and moist, like a deep fried baked potato. Unlike most curly fries that I’ve had, these were not seasoned very well. A light batter could be seen on the outside of the fries, but these could use a dose of salt, or even better, some seasoned salt.

The Bacon Avocado Burger ($4.99) is a 1/3 lb. patty, topped with two slices of crisp bacon, sliced avocado, diced onions, lettuce, tomato and a thousand island type sauce. The lettuce was fresh and crisp, the tomato ripe and full of flavor, and the onions were minced to give an extra punch to the burger. The only thing I found wrong with this burger was that there was a little bit too much lettuce which tended to mask and water down the other components of the burger. This is definitely a two fisted affair. Overall, this was one of the better Bacon Avocado Burgers that I’ve had.

The Colossal Burger ($4.79) is a 1/3 lb. patty with pastrami. The burger also comes with lettuce, tomato, minced onions and dressing. Although visible fat could be seen on the pastrami, it merely added flavor. No gristle or strands of fat could be discerned. The only complain that I had with this burger is that the pastrami was placed on the bottom bun and the burger on top of it. The moisture of the pastrami slowly disintegrated the bottom bun, so it was a messy, albeit wonderful, affair. This burger blows the Six Dollar Pastrami Burger that Carl’s Jr. sometimes has on their menu out of the water.

Bravo Burgers has an extensive menu that I would love to slowly work my way through.
