Hudson & Charles Dinette serves up some nice burgers with thick cut tallow fries! I tried three. In order:
1) Double “Smash” (9/10) – A classic American double with shredded lettuce and pickle.
2) Catalina Stack (8/10) – A double with catalina sauce, lettuce and pickle.
3) Foxy Burger (8/10) – A thick Korean single, with kimchi and spices.
All burgers come with thick cut tallow fries, and the prices range from $14-$23.
The first was near perfect, with a great crispy char and nice toppings. I only dinged it because it really wasn’t a smash, but this is definitely my preferred style of burger.
The other two were great but a bit aggressive on salt levels. The same goes for the fries, but I didn’t mind so much on those. I’ll definitely be back for the double, and also to try some steaks and pies.
I also tried their Korean fried chicken & waffles entree. The sauce is a mildly spicy gochujang base, heavily sprinkled with scallions. The waffle is more like a muffin or biscuit, with sesame and scallions. There was a mix of breast and thigh meat with a great crunchy breading, three pieces per order.
