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 from yesterday, 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.
