This weekend, my husband and I ventured out of our 10 mile radius to have burgers and beers with friends at .Hamilton Tavern. Business owners have really been revitalizing my old home town with hip places like this (and Red Canoe, down the street).
We split the beef and veggie burger, so as to try them both!
First, the beef burger...
The burgers here are really top notch. The beef comes from a farm, about 20 miles north, and tastes like it was picked up that morning. I ate this burger on Saturday, and wish i could go back for more tonight! The bun looks like it might be too much, but it compliments the burger perfectly.
Second, the veggie burger
The veggie burger was substantial and homemade. It had a nice smoke flavor, and was not, like most places, a reheated Boca burger. Even if you're a serious meat eater, I would suggest giving this a taste.
Finally, for dessert, a salted caramel cupcake with salted caramel buttercream topped with bacon.
One word - yes. Sure, the icing application could use a little work, but when a cupcake tastes this yummy, it's hard to criticize.
All in all, a fabulous night out with friends, good burgers, dessert, and beer. Note to the ladies, the Hamilton Tavern has one of the coolest women's rooms I've ever seen, but it will make you feel guilty for not having read Wuthering Heights.
