Bacon Bacon is a food truck. Devoted to bacon.
This is exactly the reason food trucks are awesome. It would be very difficult for an actual storefront like this to exist, though if it anywhere could support it, I think SF might have a chance. When I first heard we had a bacon truck , I had to check out the menu to see how they were pulling it off, and was impressed. They have good lunch offerings, and a few tasty looking desserts. But the greatest surprise was the root beer they had on tap- Devil’s Canyon. It was real creamy and didn’t have an overbearing amount of bite; probably one of the best root beers I have ever had.
Now on to the burger. I have ordered it twice, and eating it again really cemented how i felt about it. The bacon bacon burger consists of two smaller patties, bacon, and cheddar cheese. The bottom bun was slathered in some almost melted cheeselike mayo-esque cream, which I believe the current catch-all is aioli. I, as usual, opted out of the grilled onions. The burger rang up at 8 bones.
So how does it stack up? Well, the first time I had it, the two patties weren’t the size of the bun, and instead covered different sides, and met in the middle. Took me a little while to realize it was indeed two patties, but it didn’t actually detract from the burger, and just recently that was not an issue. They give you some reasonably thick slabs of bacon, and don’t skimp with it either. The buns are nice and doughy, which I prefer. A good contrast to the melted cheese and sauce surrounding the meat. This burger is serious though. Not in a huge way or anything, it is decently sized and will fill you up for a lunch, but it will knock you off your feet. The whole thing tasted a little saltier than the average bacon burger, and throw in the cheese and mayo-cream on the bottom and you’ve got a heavy sitting burger. One of the burgers that make you really question eating it all too often. It is good, but it just tasted like it was dangerous. Is it not good for you? For sure. But that is not what we want to be thinking while eating one, so I guess I prefer my burgers a little less up front about it, unless of course it is completely over the top. And in that case, by all means sign me up.
Worth giving a go, but be prepared to have a sit down/get the burger sweats after this one. And definitely get the root beer!
Also, upon further research they do indeed have a storefront now doing breakfast, and soon lunch. So I guess I am underestimating bacon.
