I firmly believe that cheeseburgers are one of the best inventions.
Aside from the hot comb, telephone, internet, and refrigerator (to obviously keep food fresh), the cheeseburger (and plain burger too) has to be one of the best things to grace the earth. Knowing that, burgers hold a fond place in my heart and stomach. When I got the chance to check out a cheeseburger and set of fries at Burger City Grill in Torrance it was a no brainer. I hopped in my car, drove down to the South Bay, and ordered what I would soon consider the best burger and fries the restaurant has to offer!
After a few minutes of staring at the menu I placed my order and waited patiently at a booth for my food. Well, somewhat patiently. It didn’t take long for the fries and burger to arrive and my hands immediately went after the C.P.R. Fries ($5.95) first. The hand cut fries were covered with Applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, cherry pepper relish (CPR), and a BCG spread. I loved how soft and slightly crispy the fries were but what made them even better was the spicy, smokey, and sweet relish that smothered the fries. Grabbing bits of the crispy bacon and pulling it all together with the cheddar cheese gave me such a great style of fries that it was easy to devour them all.
To go with my fries was my burger. The burger that made my crazy fries feel complete was The Yorker ($6.95). The Certified Angus Beef patty was toppled with a heaping of deli style pastrami, Swiss cheese, red onions, and smeared with the BCG spread. From the first bite to the last, this burger was absolutely delicious especially coming from a fast-casual concept. The brioche bun was soft yet maintained its composure perfectly as it held in all the meat and cheese. The patty was juicy, but it was the pastrami that made it taste delightful. The deli meat was so tender and flavorful and paired with the cheese and fresh onions in the best way possible. I was surprised at how quickly I finished it because it made me question whether I should order a second one. I didn’t, but I definitely thought long and hard about it.
After thoroughly enjoying the C.P.R. Fries and The Yorker from Burger City Grill I can easily say that the food was delicious! The fries were full of great flavor from their unique sauce and the burger was topped with such succulent meat that it would have been impossible for me to leave any of it behind. Thanks to the great burger from Burger City Grill, I will continue to hold on to my belief that burgers are one of the best inventions!
