Bluegrass Burgers: Local & Delicious Fast Food
As I sought a spot for lunch, I spied the sign for Bluegrass Burgers and decided to give it a try. I knew nothing about the place but hoped it might have a decent burger. I was very fortunate in my choice as it turned out to be quite a find, a restaurant deserving of an hearty recommendation. Very good food, mostly local ingredients, and reasonable prices. A trifecta of benefits.
Much of the menu consists of sandwiches such as Kentucky Grass Fed Black Angus Beef Burger, Bison Burger, and Cheese Steak. You will also find Grilled Ahi Tuna Steak, Garden Burger, House Made Black Bean Burger, All Natural Grilled Chicken, All Beef Frank, and Marinated Portabello Mushroom. Each item costs $5.99-$8.99, and is accompanied with a side of hand-cut fries or house made cole slaw.
You can get an extra burger for $3 for extra burger and some toppings cost 50 cents, such as cheese, chili, and bacon. For $1.00, you can get local artisan cheese from Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese. There is also a local produce bar which contains numerous free condiments, pickles and such. Sides includes fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, coleslaw and salads.
Bison Burger with an extra patty and topped by local Bleu-Gouda cheese and accompanied by sweet potato fries. This was also excellent, moist with plenty of tasty flavor and the cheese added an intriguing and compelling element. The sweet potato fries were also addictive, with a bright sweet potato flavor and a crisp exterior. That would handle any appetite.
