The cheeseburger is a food icon, perhaps America’s favorite, and today, September 15, it's celebrated in DOUBLE fashion.
Seasoned ground beef, cooked to perfection and placed on a bun with that all-important melted cheese. What's better than a cheeseburger with your favorite toppings?
A DOUBLE cheeseburger!
Here's my shortlist of great burger joints in the Wichita Metro, compiled during the Bachelor on the Cheap Burger Challenge 2022:
Bricktown Brewery: A solid burger choice, the Bricktown Brewery Bacon Cheddar Burger scored a 58 out of 63 possible points, earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. The burger was so nicely balanced and while that generous portion of 'Burger Sauce' made for a messy burger eat, it did kick things up a notch. Anytime you have burger juices and sauce running down your hand, a.k.a. FLAVOR, it's a good thing. Of note: Best Sweet Potato Fries of the Challenge.
Timbuktu Bar & Grill: Order the Timbuktu Bar & Grill Timbuktu Original Burger with a bacon add but make it a double. The burger scored 58 out of a possible 63 points earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. The perfect execution of this flat-top burger is what makes it. Reasonably priced, it's definitely worthy of a repeat buy. Of Note: Best Curly Fries of the Challenge.
Harry's Uptown Bar & Grill: The entire burger basket was as I like to say, Another Dose of YUM! Harry's Uptown Bar & Grill and their 'Bacon & Cheese' Burger scored 58 points out of a possible 63, a score earning a 5-star Bachelor on the Cheap rating. And did you see that price? We're talking a 1/2-pound burger! Not only is it a fantastic burger, but what Harry's cranks out in fine fashion is Bachelor on the Cheap wallet-friendly too. Of note: Best Onion Rings of the Challenge.
Burger Central: The Burger Central Bacon Cheeseburger scored 58 points out of a possible 63, earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. The burger was flavorful, juicy, stacked well and very balanced. Burger Central crafts a top-notch classic bacon cheeseburger and it's Bachelor on the Cheap wallet friendly at only $8.59 for the basket. This is a repeat buy, a burger I would order again, and again, and again. Burger Central mistakenly gave me fries instead of tots. They immediately caught the error and served me up some tots, which were the Best Tater Tots of the Challenge.
Deano's Grill & Tapworks: My favorite sports bar in town and they make a darn good burger. The Deano's Grill & Tapworks Classic Cheeseburger with a bacon add-on scored 59 points out of a possible 63, earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's most definitely a repeat buy and deserves to be on your burger-to-try list if you haven't done so already.
Buster's Burger Joint: There's a reason this place is always packed first thing when the joint opens. The Buster's Burger Joint Double Cheeseburger with a bacon add scored a 59 out of a possible 63 points earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. Buster's is VERY Bachelor on the Cheap wallet-friendly, the value is tremendous and if Buster's isn't already on your burger-to-try list, it should be! Of Note: Best Burger Value of the Challenge.
Fizz Burgers & Bottles: The Fizz Burgers & Bottles Bacon Cheeseburger scored 60 points out of a possible 63, earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. This was the most expensive burger of the Challenge, but also tied for the highest scoring, one of the tastiest. An upscale burger weighing a 1/2 pound, utilizing the freshest ingredients and pairing it all with a one-of-a-kind sauce makes for an excellent burger experience, one very worthy of a repeat buy. The 1/4 pound version is available for $12. And here's another tell on how good this place is, by the time I left at around 11:45 am, the place was nearly full with customers.
Bill's Charcoal Grill: This is the best burger in the Wichita Metro! The Bill's Charcoal Grill Double Cheeseburger with bacon scored 60 out of a possible 63 points earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. This is a repeat buy, again, and again, and again... The best burger beef of the Challenge. Of Note: Runner Up for Best Regular French Fries.
Enjoy National Double Cheeseburger Day in the Wichita Metro!
