(Second Review -- May 2011 PBPB Burger)
Since my last review, Killer Burger has opened up three more locations: one in the Sellwood district of Portland, one in Bingen (Washington), and the latest one in Vancouver (Washington). I had a burger craving last month and randomly stopped in for a bite to eat at the Vancouver spot.
The menu here is the same as the other Killer Burgers. Also a good beer selection, if that's your thing. Probably the best part for me has been their happy hour each weekday (M-F from 2-5 p.m.). A classic burger or a peanut burger-pickle-bacon (PBPB) burger, with fries, for $4.95.
I love crispy fries that err more toward the salty side, and that's what I received here. Some of the smaller fries got extra crunchy in the fryer. Double win and a mega happy panda. These fries are a bit thicker than the average french fry. The bigger fries stayed pleasingly soft on the inside.
EDIT: And my spicochist review video is now up!
I was actually amused when I saw the "Marine" burger (which I did last year) was temporarily unavailable at the time (roughly mid-November). I can only guess that they didn't have all the ingredients for the challenge. Not that I would do it again, but it'd be fun to see someone else give it a go. Turning back into a sadistic panda. As a note, I'm sure they still don't allow anyone to place takeout orders on the "Marine" or even allow that constructed burger to leave the premises.
|Heh, the "Marine" was temporarily unavailable...|
Gotta remind myself to get the "Black Molly" next time ($9.95). 1/3 lb beef patty, smoky house sauce, grilled onion, Philly steak, provolone, house-brined roasted green chiles, mayo, and bacon. OK, maybe no mayo for me. But what about some PB sauce with that? Hmm...make it a fatty for $2 more? Perhaps a few habaneros from the Marine burger (ghost peppers could be a tad excessive)? I like the sound of it, but I'm obviously not normal.
Can't wait to head back for another burger! 8.25/10
