My expectations were high. Very high.
My coworker first told me about the Squeeze Burger at Squeeze Inn (saw it on "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives") because I'm a huge foodie and frequent Sacramento (client is there). It's been on my list to try ever since. When I was last there, I picked up the latest issue of Sacramento magazine and what was the cover story? Burgers and pizza! I knew this burger had to be featured, and it was, so I raved about it and talked a colleague into going with me. I will travel anywhere for good food.
I was pleasantly surprised. It was smaller, divier and all around wayyyy more fabulous than I could have imagined. All of this added to its charm. So glad I got to eat at the original (they've since moved).
The cheese skirt is unlike anything I've eaten. Only word to describe it (although none really do it justice): cheesealicious. The grill master sprinkled copius amounts of cheddar cheese over the patty on the grill and covered it with a lid, under which the magic happens – the cheese bubbles up and melts into the crisp.
Crispy, chewy, cheesy wonderful goodness. It makes the burger. But, the burger is pretty darn good too. High quality bun and big sliced pickles. Freshly made fries were fat and flavorful.
Cheap. Cheerful. Everything I thought it would be, and more. Still salivating.
Don't be a skirt. Eat at Squeeze Inn. Sacramento, California.
