Over the summer, Houston was home to Houstonia Magazine's Burger Bash, with a host of local burger entries participating. Surprisingly, the best of the bash was not from not a local burgery, but from the national chain - Sullivan's Steakhouse. There's was a classic slider version, tasty, flavorful, and perfectly prepared. However, I had to wonder how their full-size burger would hold up without all the excitement around this event.
My visit to Sullivan's for lunch was planned with their burger on my mind. Hungry and ready to feast, and without looking at the menu, I assertively ordered the American Burger, cooked medium with lettuce, red onion, cheddar cheese and light mayo. As it was served, I immediately noticed the glazed brioche bun, with the overhead lights beaming off it's top. Cutting the burger in half, I was greeted by a perfect juicy shade of pink, accompanied by cheddar cheese melting through the greenry that was the shredded lettuce. After completing my examination, I took a first bite followed by a second one. Confirmation of my original opinion from the Burger Bash - Sullivan's (the steakhouse) makes a delicious burger. With their specialty being meat, why wouldn't they? Along with delicious hand-cut fries, attentive and friendly service, this burger assignment was complete. Thanks to Houstonia Magazine for introducing me to the world of burgers from Sullivan's.
