For a mid-week date night, the destination would be Del Frisco’s Grille in Uptown. I was invited to check out the burger promo Del Frisco’s is hosting and thought it would be fun to bring my burger aficionado aka boyfriend.
Del Friscos started the Burgers and Brews promo on Halloween to kick off North Texas Beer week. For $17.50, you get to choose from three burgers (the Prime Cheese Burger, Green Chili Burger and Lamb Burger), a side of fries (regular, sweet potato, or parmesan sea salt frites), and a one of six beers on tap. I think that’s actually a pretty sweet deal and the promo goes on till February 2nd and can be redeemed in the Uptown, Southlake and Fort Worth locations. The portion sizes were great and I was so full, the food-coma knocked me out by 10 p.m. Zzzzzzz.
For dinner, we decided to double team the menu and try as much as possible.
I had the prime double cheeseburger with sweet potato fries and a Stella. Having eaten many many burgers, I’ve found that my burger of choice is usually a standard cheese burger. I’ve had all sorts of burgers with adventurous garnishes like fried eggs, but it all usually gets in the way of taste. The prime double cheeseburger is a pretty solid burger. Nice buttery and toasted bun, two patties, the usual tomatoes, pickles, onions and lettuce and of course the cheese. Omggg look at the cheese. I appreciate a good melt. The flavor is good and the ingredients were fresh. They use dill pickles instead of sour pickles. I’m not a fan of pickles and promptly took it out to continue devouring the burger. I think the bun is almost as important of a component of every burger. I liked that the bun had a hint of sweetness to it. I hate eating burgers with crappy buns, so I was glad the buns had that density I crave. I also really liked that the burger wasn’t greasy or oily. I enjoy a messy burger, but I don’t like eating grease-saturated burgers. It just ruins it for me.
Sweet potatoes fries are always a good compliment for burgers. I like the balance of sweet and salty. I wished the fries were cooked a little longer. They came out somewhat limp, but still delicious. I love the mini ketchup bottles that come with the combo. So cute.
The Green Chili Cheeseburger is a standard cheese burger made with jalapeños and hatch chiles. This messy burger was huge. The heat is very subtle, almost non-existent. I’m not a fan of sweat-inducing, mouth burning spiciness, so I didn’t have a problem with it. If you’re looking for a kick you won’t get that. I have mixed-feelings about this burger. The flavor is good, but I felt it was a little overwhelmed with the green chili sauce.
I’m a sucker for parmesan truffle anything. Especially on fries. So when sea salt parm fries were an option I jumped all over that. Suffice to say, they could’ve been better. They weren’t very hot and despite seeing the salt sprinkles on the fries, it wasn’t seasoned enough. I’ll stick with the sweet potato fries.
Not included in the promo, we were also treated to an appetizer and dessert. We ordered the deviled eggs with a truffle-chive vinaigrette. I really enjoyed them. The eggs were actually cooked perfectly. Some places tend to undercook the egg so the egg whites tends to be soft and floppy.
Last but not least was the amazing Lemon Doberge Cake. It was so delicious. This 6 layer lemon cake, with lemon buttercream icing in between each layer and an additional lemon glaze on the top and outer layers, was the perfect conclusion of our gluttonous dinner. The cake was the perfect density. Not too mushy, but moist to perfection. I’m not a fan of heavy icing, so I really liked that there was minimal amount on the cake. This was my favorite part. This takes the cake (sorry…I had to)!
Since the promo is ongoing until February, I wish the promo was a little more obvious on the menu. They could do a better job promoting it since I didn’t find any mentions of it their Instagram or Twitter. The promo is tucked away on the website as well. Overall, I enjoyed my meal and I think the promo is a pretty great deal. Burger, fries and beer for less than $20, at Del Frisco’s no less!
