Whiskey Cake is a higher end restaurant along the Dallas Tollroad in Plano, Texas. The first thing I saw when we arrived at the restaurant was the huge bar that essentially filled an entire wall of the restaurant. Behind it you could see the kitchen and also that they had real chefs out there preparing the food. A lot of restaurants are chef driven, but they are usually not there in the daily work; they just train cooks to make the same food over and over again, but not here. It all looked pretty good.
We were seated quickly and I already knew what I wanted. I wanted the OMG burger per recommendations from a Facebook follower. The OMG stands for Onion, Mushrooms, and Goodness according to the menu. The burger was made from Beef Brisket and cooked to order. I ordered mine medium-rare.
The wait was 15 minutes or so, not impressive by any means, but decent for a restaurant of this caliber. The wait was definitely worth it! The burger was beautiful and tall! On top of the burger was a huge onion ring filled with sautéed mushrooms. The slice of cheese was maybe ¼ inch thick! I tried to squeeze the burger and eat it with my hands, but I gave up after the second bite. It was too messy to eat in a regular fashion. But OMG it was good! Not because of the name of the burger, but because it was perfect! The beef brisket gave this burger a lot of flavor and the cheese was very potent and cheesy. It was cooked perfectly medium rare as requested and the mushrooms and onion ring were all cooked to perfection. I can’t really think of anything that would make this burger much better. It was so good and very big and it had the wow factor that is needed for a perfect 10.
The chips that came on the side were boring, but there were not that many, so I saw them more as being something pretty on the plate instead of something you actually eat.
What am I going to say, other than OMG! It was a terrific burger and from what I saw other guests had, I suspect that all their food is awesome. I will be back soon and have the burger again.
