The latest B.S. session was held at Splitz Grill on Main Street, a lunchtime foray that exceeded the expectations of all and yielded our highest score to date (8.8 out of 10).
Expectations were modest going in, perhaps because we were feeling a bit sapped by our experiences so far, where no burger has jumped up and commanded the attention of all. It could also have been prior knowledge, as some in the party had been to Splitz once or twice before and didn’t recall the burger being anything extraordinary.
This time around, however, all put up high scores, some have gone back for seconds, and one member was moved to summarize it simply …. “it was a freakin’ good burger ….”
The highlights come in a variety of forms:
1. the juicy, nicely-sized, 1/3 pound patty, which has just the right amount of seasoning to not take away from the beef
2. the wide selection of sauce and quality toppings options,
3. a quality sesame seed bun that (unlike many others) didn’t fall apart from all the goodness stuffed inside.
Part of what makes Splitz unique is the adding of gourmet-style toppings (fancy a little hummus instead of mayo? No problem!) to the burger experience. Most of our group took the garlic mayo option, which was outstanding, and most appreciated the grated cheese, which is applied un-melted – a unique and tasty approach!
