By: 775 Gastropub
"The burger was great. Very tasty. My compliments to the chef.", said Charles as he paced through the restaurant, seemingly overcome with excitement.
775 Gastropub introduced it's Burger Challenge this past March. As listed on the menu: "Can you clean this plate in 30 min or less??? Beat the challenge & your name will be added to the Wall of Fame, you'll receive a t-shirt & your
burger is free! But if the challenge beats you, you'll still have to swallow your pride and the $45 bill!"
The burger features one each of turkey, beef, bison, chorizo, venison, meatloaf patties, a fried egg, bacon, cheddar, provolone, fresh mozzarella, jack & gruyere cheeses, brava mayo, spicy ketchup, hollandaise & beef gravy, seared pork belly, garlic fries & bacon sweet potato fries all under one bun, served
with blue chips & burger garnish of tomato & pickle.
Owner, John Leniz, was on hand for the challenge and was amazed at Garcia's speed. " We've had a half dozen challengers. One guy had a similar pace and locked up about half way through. I was worried [Garcia] was going to have the same trouble, but he proved he came to not only compete, but win."
Charles will be receiving his custom order t-shirt in the next few weeks and his name will be the first to be added to the Wall-of-Fame plaque, prominently displayed at 775 Gastropub.
