Its fairly fitting that today on FussyLittleBlog, the post is about a healthier burger; my own post is about an incredibly unhealthy burger brought to my attention by the same blogger.
Mister and I arrived at Swifty’s in Delmar at about 6:15pm on Friday, and could tell there was something to get excited about. This small restaurant was filled with families and couples, lined up near the door waiting for their seats with almost aggressive anticipation. We were given a wait time of about 30 minutes, so we headed to the bar for a drink.
We were able to wiggle our way into two seats at the bar, despite the crowd, where we had drinks (Saranac Legacy IPA) and an order of BBQ wings to get started.
I was enthusiastic about the beers on tap, but less than excited about the soggy wings. Though the BBQ sauce was great, there was not one crispy bite.
Once seated, we went straight for a shared order Loaded Waffle Fries, and a shared Swifty’s Buffalo Burger (salad on the side, we are trying to focus on healthier foods some of the time I promise).
Any disappointment from the wings served at the bar dissipated, once we were presented with the Swifty’s Buffalo Burger.
The menu description reads:
Do not be intimidated by this one-of-a-kind burger! Hand breaded, deep fried crisp and golden finished in buffalo sauce
The hype was spot on.
For starters, I think Mister and I were both surprised when we were asked how we would like it cooked (medium) and it was actually delivered with a juicy red center. How can they possibly cook a burger so well AND deep fry it? That is a true talent.
Its crispy. Juicy. Spicy….the bun is a little sweet. We abandoned the fries and both inhaled our halves of the burger with minimal discussion.
Next time, we’re definitely getting two.
