So I didn't keep up with this on the blog like I expected, but I certainly still had fun with the Third Trimester Burger Tour each week. Here's where we went:
Week 28: Five Guy's Burgers and Fries - This was much better than I expected. Right now they are ranked #3 on the list for burgers and #2 on the list for Fries. I love their fries and the burger had a great meat to bun ratio with all the standard fixin's. By going in to order the "standard" I accidentally got the double cheese burger and took half of it home. From now on I'll be ordering the "Little Cheeseburger".
Week 29: Blue Note Grill - This restaurant is right across the street from where we live and it was my favorite going into the tour. They're burgers are made from 100% beef brisket that they grind daily at the restaurant and the buns are buttered and toasted to perfection.
Week 30: Piper's
Week 31: Only Burger
Week 32: Bull City Burgers and Brewery - This place is by far #1 on the list, for both the best burgers and the best fries. They opened on the 24th of February and Calvin and I fell in love.
Week 33: CHAR-GRILL - Char-grill is great for what it is. The hamburger steak burger is what they are known for and it is a must to order over the regular burger.
Week 34: Vita
Week 35: This week Mom came down to help us with a deep clean of baseboards, windows, blinds, and light fixtures on Saturday. So we took her to Bull City Burgers and Brewery for lunch to taste what is by far the #1 burger in Durham in our opinion. We were pretty excited to be able to go back for a repeat visit.
We accidentally allowed Week 36 to slip by without a stop. Going into week 37 I was very much looking forward to Wimpy's. King's Sandwich Shop was also planned for week 38 to wrap it up with a couple greasy spoon favorites. They are both still on the list to try soon even though they did not make it in the third trimester. Since Kathleen was born half way through the 37th week, the burger tour really only made it to week 34. However, Calvin and I are both agreed the Bull City Burgers and Brewery wins hands down. I'm so glad they opened just in time for the tour. And since the use local meet whenever possible, I will continue to eat there any time I have a burger craving!
