We Need to Have a 'Best Burger on the Avenue' Competition

Posted By on Thu, Jun 14, 2012 at 12:00 PM

Every couple years I sit down with Dave Carroll, the kitchen manager at Surly Wench Pub, to sip Jaegermeister and Pabst and wax philosophical about life. He's always got his finger on the pulse of what's happening Downtown and his varied work history at different restaurants down there gives him a unique perspective on the dining scene.

When we sat down this week he was a little bit pissed about the banner that hangs outside of Lindy's on Fourth. It says the place serves the best burger on Fourth Avenue. Carroll says that's an unsubstantiated claim, and I have to agree.

Carroll said they should settle this difference by having a Best Burger on the Avenue competition. This is a good idea. Maloney's serves one hell of a burger, and so does Surly Wench, Delectables and Bumsted's. Hell, it might even be a good idea to hold it sometime this August when the construction creeps down to that portion of Fourth Avenue, slowing business and pissing everybody off in general.

Let's make this happen Fourth Avenue Merchants Association, restaurant owners and anybody else who has something to offer. It would be a blast.
