Coast to Coast – Hickory Red burger

After writing my Coast to Coast breakfast review I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on the burger I had there. It was a good few weeks ago that we were at Coast to Coast and we started the evening with a few delicious gin based cocktails. They guy behind the bar was new at the time but he still managed to do a good job.

After a 15 minute wait we were guided to our table by one of the Converse wearing waiters. The staff were friendly and ready to help, just like the brilliant service you get when you’re in America.

It was cleverly suggested that we try the olives and garlic bread, we agreed and settled down with whisky and coke to wait for our orders. Although it was a cheeky upsale we were delighted with the starters. The olives were of the green variety, tangy and covered in herbs. The garlic bread was lovely and thin and covered with fresh garlic butter.

After quite a bit of consideration (the menu is huge) we ordered a Hickory Red and a Hot Slaw burger, one with regular fries and one with sweet potatoes.

My burger was stuffed with crispy bacon, friend onions and  big splodge of BBQ sauce.

The Hot Slaw burger came with fresh rocket, Louisiana hot sauce,mayo and dill pickle. We shared the fries and I can confirm that both are perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft and warm on the inside.

As we don’t usually go for a starter we were way too stuffed for desert. They did have a very good selection on offer though, the peanut butter cheesecake sounded too good to be true.

One final thought. You need to take things for what they are. This is a chain restaurant (and a bloody good one at that) but it’s not a Byron. Enjoy it for what it is. No, it wont be the best burger you’ve ever had but I can’t imagine you would be expecting that. It was however, cooked very well, the atmosphere was great and the staff were friendly. The overall experience was just what I needed after a long day at work.
