On first bite you could tell that this was a serious burger at a serious burger restaurant. The meat was juicy and perfectly cooked. It was without a doubt top-shelf meat because regardless of the six different toppings the beef sang through.
On the other hand, the toppings were awesome. The cheese was gooey and had a bite to it; the bacon was crispy and full of flavor. The fried onions strings and added fried pickles brought that greasy note to the party and the fresh vegetables cut through all the savory notes to make it all manageable. Without the lettuce and tomato there would be no way I could have finished the burger but I did!
The egg was good and added some of the creamy element to the burger but I really wished it was cooked less. It just did not make the impact I thought it would.
Now the pretzel bun...awesome! Nice and chewy and a little sweet; it pulled the whole burger together.
All in all this was a great burger, one of the best I've had. I would have given it a solid 10 if not for the egg issue. I also could complain about the fact that I didn't get my mini Tabasco bottle but I could have just asked if I really wanted it so I will take the blame for that one.
This is a great place and next time I am in Milwaukee I will come back to see the main part of the restaurant. I will add also that they have over 100 varieties of local beers and both a gluten-free and vegan menu.
