What I Ate: January 31, 2008

For lunch, I decided to try another new place - Kirk's Steakburgers in Santa Clara. This is a restaurant that opened up recently taking the location of the ominously named restaurant "The Octagon" (which I never got a chance to try). We've been getting fliers for Kirk's Steakburgers for a while, so I thought it was time to try it out. I ordered the Steakburger (1/3 pound patty) with cheese (Jack) cooked medium-well (it came closer to medium) as well as a side of garlic fries (after verifying that they were steak fries and not shoestring). The burger comes with just a bun - you provide the fixings from on open bar. I loaded the burger up with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, red onions, mayonnaise, and ketchup.

The burger was fine, but nothing special. I'd rather have an In-N-Out burger or one from The Counter (if I'm looking for something with a big patty). The fries were pretty good and had strong garlic flavor, but like Gordon Biersch's garlic fries, the idea is better than the execution.
