Hamburger Aficionado ! Tabbuli Grill is the place to get one!

OK, there are hamburgers...... and then there are Hamburgers! Well I found a great one at Tabbuli Grill.
Big, Juicy, seasoned perfectly and cooked to perfection.
First they take chuck and grind it, then they take all the trim from the prime rib the cut for there Kabobs and grind that. Then they mix the two and run it through one more grind to get the perfect texture. They hand patty the burgers into half pound giants and let then chill.
OK, now for the cooking part. They season the burger properly with a generous amount of salt and pepper and start the cooking process on the flattop griddle. This sears the burger and gives it the that nice brown crispy crust we all like and when its close to the cooking temperature you want it is transferred to the charbroiler just to finish cooking it and to give it the hint of that char flavor only a grill can give. It is remove from the grill and served on a toasted corn meal dusted kaiser roll with all the trimmings, lettuce tomato and onion. I don't get cheese on mine because I don't want to infringe on the flavor of the beef.
Next, the french fries! If you want a truly great french fry as well then get ready because they have them too!
French fries if you are cooking them from scratch is an art form in itself. First you start with an Idaho potato, they use a 60 count which is a big potato. It is run through a potato slicer so every fry has the same thickness. They are soaked in a bucket of water with a little vinegar overnight and then drained. Then they are blanched in hot oil for about 2-3 minutes, just to soften them and then they are cooled completely. Now when you place your order for you burger those cold, blanched fries are dropped in the fryer again and fried until golden and crispy. They come right out of the fryer into a bowl where they are seasoned immediately and serve to you at once! Ummmmm......I can taste them now... So my friends, that is how you cook a great burger and fries. So instead of going through all that trouble, come on down to Tabbuli Grill at 6 North Market Street and see for yourself. You will be glad you did...........
