Smash Burger - Newark Airport

It wasn't my first choice but on a long vacation to Long Island Wine County I finally got to have a burger... and this was it. Again, not my first choice.

The "smash sauce" was the highlight of this experience. If you come across a Smash Burger in your travels, find the next place. Not a big fan...

Republic Social House- Atlanta, GA

If you make it through Atlanta, you've got to give the Roof Top bar at Republic Social House a try. Great bar tenders (ask to play the liquor bottle ring toss), solid atmosphere, misting fans, music & of course burgers!

I gave the "Va La Hedes" a shot and was not disappointed!

Fire spice rubbed, fresh jalapenos, pepper jack cheese & a home made habanero mayo...

This was the real deal of heat!
Meat quality could of been better, but for quick/drunk bar food it was okay. They are not a gastro pub so I don't expect them to be all "nose in the air" about the meat.
