The ultimate Cheeseburger

I am looking in the Bay Area for the Ultimate cheeseburger. I have been writing Cookin with Earl for over 25 years. I am putting together my favorite recipes for all those years and many stories that come with them. I love cheeseburgers and I want to share what I believe to be the Best In The Bay. I will spend the next 6 to 8 months in search of the Best  Burger in the Bay……..I am going to share what I go through to get to the best. The top 5 Burgers will end up in the burger section of the book. If you know of a burger place that you think will stand up to the test of being one of the Best of the Bay Burgers let me know.

ONE of myfavorites ! 

Taylor’s Refreshers in Saint Helena

I have been going up to Taylor’s since I was a kid.  My dad had a sales business and he would take me with him every now and then. When we went up valley we would stop at the Taylor’s and get a burger. I know back then they were fifty cents of less. Well whenever we head up the valley now we always stop and burger up! With a black and white shake or on the 4th of July we get the Red White and Blue shake……OMG…..There are 3 or 4 cheeseburgers that hit my list and I try something new each time…..I love a place where I have to wait in a line for a burger and on a warm day in the valley this is one of my favorite places to eat. Taylor’s in Saint Helena will be one of the top five in Northern Cal for the book.

Dick’s last resort in San Diego

http://www.dickslastresort.com/domains/sandiego/photos-videos.htm

Ok……I went to see what Dick’s was all about. If you ever talk to anyone who has been to San Diego the name Dick’s usually comes up.  When my wife Jane told me we were going to eat at a restaurant in San Diego named Dick’s last resort I had no idea and really had never heard about it before. We went down to the ACN International convention with about 45 of our team members and we went to dinner at Dick’s. Just walking up to the place you know it is a fun place to eat. The decor is at best crazzzy and wild…..even a lifeguard stand in the front of the restaurant with a pretty lady sitting and inviting you in.     

 Dick’s Last Resort is a small bar and restaurant chain in the United States, known for its intentional employment of an obnoxious staff.[2] The name consists of seven restaurants, including one near Petco Park, California[3] and another in Las Vegas.[4] The restaurant, which uses picnic-style tables and no tablecloths, has its origins in the owners’ original opening of a “fine-dining” establishment. The establishment was a failure, which resulted in bankruptcy. Rather than continue with the upscale restaurant motif, the owners retooled their efforts and decided to “go sloppy”.[5] The end result was a success, leading to the creation of six additional locations.

Dick’s Last Resort teaches its servers lessons on how to be obnoxious.[2] In addition to the staff, the decor is considered to be “wacky”.[6] Patrons of Dick’s are expected to be insulted, or placed in uncomfortable situations. Adult bibs and large fun hand-made paper hats are given to diners to wear during their stay.[7] While there are no napkins on the tables, they are generally thrown directly at the customers by the serving staff.

We were having a blast and the waiter was real nice and would go between being a dick and being a nice guy. The band started up and I can’t sit still so I got up and started dancing to (Billy Idol )in the space between the tables and was just having a blast. I love this place for the entertainment, as for the food well I had the Dolly Parton and that’s two chicken breasts and I ate my meal, but could have had french fries and been happier.  The guy across from me had the catfish and it should have stayed in the pond it came from. I did notice the good looking steak salads and the ribs. Everyone I asked those eating both and they said the salad and the ribs were great. Next time it’s salad for me.

Tee Off Bar and Grill in San Francisco

Tee Off Bar and Grill in San Francisco by Cookin with Earl

 

 After 25 years of doing a cooking column and reviews, as Cookin with Earl. I am starting to put together another book.

(Stories from the Big Chair) which was my first is a story book about 90 funny personal stories.

http://activerain.com/blogsview/1788863/searching-for-the-ultimate-wave

 I have always wanted to put out a cook book with my favorite recipes with stories over the last 25 years. I am going to include a section on the my favorite food the American HamBurger. I am going to spend the next year searching for the Best Bay area Burger. I will call the section “Buddy’s Burgers”and who knows maybe I will open a burger chain and call it McBuddys.

The Tee Off Bar and Grill

Jane and I headed over to S.F. for our 18th anniversary last night to find a dive and we had help from Guy fieri from the three D’s show on the Food Network. Tee Off Bar and Grill was one of the Dives we saw on the show and we found it on Clement St. One cool thing about finding the restaurant was going from one end of Geary St to the other.

 Got a parking spot right in front of Tee Off Bar and Grill and walked in and we were in a bar. Yup a bar, as we walked in there were a few people at the bar and a couple of guys playing pool right at the tables you eat at. We knew we were in for something special, and wherever you sit you pretty much need to move every now and then for someone to make a shot on the pool table. The waiter/bartender (Curtis) was a real happy, personal dude that could get along with anyone. We started to ask if this was the place and before we could finish the question he looked at us with a smile and said “this is the place”

The guys who were playing pool were real friendly and only had to ask us about 4 times to move a bit to make a shot. I watched their food come out and I had already ordered, but not what I came for… the burgers were so awesome looking. I asked the people at the table on the other side of the pool table if we could take a picture of their food before they started eating and they said yes. The chicken pot pie comes with a crust made of sweet cornbread……OMG…..my oh my…..

I ordered the double pork chop that come out with enough yams, zucchini, spinach, and corn on the Cob, for 2 or 3 people and a mound of mashed potatoes the size of Mt. Diablo. Unbelievable food and everything had a great grilled flavor. My wife ordered the Mac and Cheese dinner and it was all the rave it has been written and talked about on TV. We had another couple come in from Alameda and we asked if they came, because of the show and they said yes…..Curtis said that business was up over 40% since the show aired 2 years ago and it continues to air on reruns and keeps them jumping still everyday……This was such a great experience I am heading back to get my favorite… the  Cheese Burger with a great big onion ring on the top.

 Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

Paul’s Crafty Mac N Cheesewith Pancetta recipe can be found on the Food Network website.
