Heavy Handed

2912 MAIN ST

We focused on sourcing the right blend of meat to pair with our house made bread and butter pickles and our sweet, smoky, extra tangy heavy sauce. ground short rib beef provided the ideal balance of meat and marbled fat that we then pressed and seared to maillardian precision. We added grilled onions and a blanket of the finest cheese america has to offer. sandwiching it between a buttered, lightly toasted bun was the final step in achieving the perfect bite.
