Today I had the chance to experience Salt Lake City’s Crown Burger which is always a great place to park for a Jazz Game. I took my 2 year old and we enjoyed Cheeseburgers, Fries and Drinks. I love the Crown Burger fry sauce! It’s got fun chunkies in it that add to the flavor and make me want to double dip (even though I am very much against it, even when I eat alone).
The bun at Crown Burger doesn’t handle the burger well. By the time you finish your burger the bun has given up and you are left with a mushy mess. It tastes great but does require more napkins than a regular burger and fries meal. The onions were very over powering (good for onion lovers but I ended up taking half off to be able to enjoy the burger). Cheese was nicely melted and overall it was a good cheeseburger.
The french fries are a different story. Unlike JCWs, these fries were more on the mushy and less on the crispy which meant that they didn’t last very long and weren’t as good as I know they can be. Dipping fries in ketchup or fry sauce requires a fry that can handle the goodness. These didn’t stack up and for the first time in months, I didn’t finish every fry. Tonight’s dinner was a 5 out of 10 but I realize I ordered a cheeseburger and not THE Crown Burger.
