Since I screwed up and didn’t remember that Cazca Grill wasn’t open on Sundays, the Mister and I were at a loss about where to go as plan b. Hmm, he didn’t feel like Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Crab Hut…so we settled on Smashburger. Good because we’ve been meaning to go back since our first visit. We wanted to try the burgers on a normal day without the crowd of the VIP event. Luckily the parking lot wasn’t too full but we got there towards the end of the lunch rush.
I read that Smashburger was introducing for a limited time the Windy City but when I got there, I decided against it since I wanted the haystack onions on the side, although I would have liked to have tried the pretzel bun. Maybe we’ll be back before it goes away. Anyway, we ended up pretty much getting the same burgers as last time. But this time I got the haystack onions instead of the sweet potato fries.
I enjoyed the San Diego burger just as much as the first time but I didn’t really care too much for the haystack onions. It reminded me of the blooming onions from Outback Steakhouse but these were very salty and limp. Think I’ll stick with the sweet potato fries from now on.
The Mister got Spicy Baja again with the Smash Fries. Just as good as the first time.
What was different this time were the shakes! You might recall that the last time our “sample” shakes were runny and just yucky. I wouldn’t have paid money for that one. But these were thick but not so thick that it clogged the straw and they were ddelicious! They came with dollops of whipped cream on top but neither one of us ate that. Think I’ll ask them not to put the whipped cream on next time.
