Finally got out this past Friday, after meeting a client downtown, and we decided on Hut’s Hamburgers…not a bad choice!  I’ve wanted to go for some time, and I ordered the Alley-Oop: single patty, cheddar, grilled onions, 1000 island dressing on grilled multigrain, patty melt style.  Really good, but next time I’ll try their poster child burger!  God, that looks wonderful.

My son had the chili dog, and it was served just how a friend of mine suggested (increased surface area for maximum enjoyment).  Wife: chicken fried chicken, and daughter, chicken strips.  So Hut’s is much more than hamburgers, and keeps a nice atmosphere with great staff. 

Long live Nat’l Hamburger Month!

Made the misses and myself the Italian sandwich tonight.  The ingredients were a little diff from the original: genoa salami, pepperoni, stagionato prov, bits of sharp cheddar, pesto, lettuce, and tomato on naan.  Good stuff; the cheddar, even in small amounts, was a little too much, and the tomato added the nice sweetness that complimented the kick from the meats, but maybe too many flavors abound that I could rarely separate them.  It was good!  Don’t get me wrong, but the first time was simple, and I like that

I think she had a nice Mother’s Day.  My own mom did, too.  I didn’t realize until one of the guys from Unbreaded mentioned it, but I inadvertently had a sandwich for lunch with my mom on her special day.  You can’t get much more special than that!  Or maybe you can, but, you know.  Happy Mother’s Day!  I love you (emotional knuckle-bite ensues).

Celebrity Sandwich of Portsmouth, NH, features the #14: Dom DeLuise.  Though most of us will never go there, we can always recreate this sandwich at home.  Ingredients include ham, provolone, olives, tomato, lettuce, and cucumber.  I wonder if Dom included any sandwiches of note in his book, Eat This…It’ll Make You Feel Better!

When I was younger, I used to get Dom mixed up with chef Paul Prudhomme.  It was hard to tell!  I mean, down to the little hat and everything.

Found a great article (oldie, but a goodie) featuring eateries with the best burgers in Austin.  The cream of the crop is Hill’s Cafe on S. Congress.  This wasn’t always the case, as the burger refinement was due to a less-than-satisfied customer.  The article is followed by another that lists 32 burgers to try while you’re here.

Happy Hamburger Month!  Let me know where you can find the best burger in your neck of the woods, or your personal favorite (no matter what others may say!).
