This month we went to the Village Burger Bar in West Village. We got there early enough to grab some seats at the bar. Luckily, a table on the patio opened up right as we placed our order, so we headed outside to enjoy a gorgeous evening and some people watching with our burgers. At VB Bar, you grab your own seat and then walk up to the bar when you're ready to place your order.
Isn't this just beautiful? Look at the thickness of that patty! And can you see the top bun glisten with a touch of butter? I think avocado and bacon makes just about anything better, but it does put this burger over the top. Super creamy avocado and numerous strips of bacon piled together for a flavorful crunch. If you're a fan of blue cheese, you know that to order a blue cheese burger can sometimes be a dicey move. I've had burgers where I had to scrape half of the blue cheese off and it was still too powerful. But this Blue Burger is just right. Crumbles sprinkled on top of the patty, right next to that bacon and avocado. Now that's flavor!
If you know anything about the Village Burger, you know that they have some of the best fries anywhere in Dallas. We all ordered different kinds to share, which is the Burger Babe way. You won't go wrong with either the fries flavored with truffle oil or the sweet potato fries, seasoned with a touch of honey. The onion rings are pretty good too. They make those super thick ones with a fantastic crunch. I couldn't figure out the seasoning, but it did give those onion rings a bit of a bite.
