Col Mustard’s Phat Burgers

It is very unlikely I would have visited this spot except for an invite by the guy next door who was doing a beach run and invited me along for the ride.   After business was wrapped up he suggested lunch since it was that time.  That’s how we came to Phat Burger, and a happy find it was.  I love burgers and have my favorite spots identified, but only one at the beach so  this was  an opportunity to expand my options.

Not much to say about ambiance, strip mall location, currently in the process of a well needed face lift, but strip mall spots are big here.  Basic interior, few tables, walk up counter, drink machine, and a cooler for water and other beverages.  Family owned,  with a relaxed atmosphere, it was  packed  when we arrived.

Menu is quite extensive, offering breakfast all day, burgers, wraps, sandwiches, wings and an assortment of sides.  We chose to get two sides and split a burger.  We opted for corn nuggets and fries and for our burger the Chomp with fried onions.

The nuggets right out of the fryer were crisp and full of sweet creamy corn.  Very tasty

Fries are Fries, and these were good but then most fires are good in my world, also just out of the basket, we had to let them set for a few seconds before biting into them.

Now the burger, was the surprise.  A half pound of grilled chuck hand fashioned and cooked to perfection.  Covered in grilled onions, cheese with lettuce and tomato it begs to be eaten.

It was even better when we cut it in half.  We had ordered med/rare and it was oozing just enough juice to lightly flavor the bun.  Meat tender and tasty, onions added a sweet taste.  I was happy we shared, there was no way I could have finished this, but my companion was looking somewhat  rueful having agreed to share.

Meal complete and we are totally sated.  Now for some crazy fun stuff.

Two of the walls contain pictures of various customers, who have taken on a challenge of eating a variety of burgers for bragging rights and their place on the “Wall of Fame”  Four young men sat next to us and we could tell by the conversation they were in for a turn.  The burger they chose to challenge themselves,  The Taylor, three patties-1.5 lb burger THE BURGER WITH ATTITUDE  as stated on the menu.  It was amazing when it arrived.  In my boldness  I asked if they would mine it we took a picture. Here it is.

Now everyone in the restaurant was interested,  They started off strong but as we were leaving we heard “I can’t finish this”.  We both giggled.

This is what food is all about for me, friends, fun, adventure and happiness.  I highly recommend Col Mustard’s Phat Burger, and may make a run in for breakfast late one morning.  If you feel up to a challenge, get the besties together, and do your own challenge,  be immortalized on the wall for  bragging rights, but most of all have fun.
