There's a whole new level of burger. It sits comfortably between two buns, a layer of warm American cheese, fat slices of fresh red onion and tomato, a bunch of Romaine, and a pile of two-and-a-half inch pickles. It's pretty confident, all medium-rare and such, with a basket of sliced spuds to keep it company.
Residing at Rok Brgr in Ft. Lauderdale, "The Original" is one heck of a mouthful. A beautiful mouthful, that is.
Although it's the simplest on the menu, The Original is anything but your ordinary burger. Despite being surrounded by such options as the signature Rok:Brgr ("angus beef, aged vermont cheddar, pecan smoked bacon, bourbon bbq, sesame bun"), the Black N Bleu ("angus beef, crumble bleu cheese, pecan smoked bacon, caramelized onions, sesame bun"), and the King James ("american kobe wagyu, kurobuta pork belly confit, red onion marmalade, brie cheese, truffle aioli, brioche bun"), The Original gave me a wink and a wave and I was hooked.
My recommendation: get a full glass of their impeccable Raspberry Sweet tea, request a plate of dill pickles, and put the fork away. Because Rok Brgr's are anything but playing around. After all, it's a long way to the top (of the burger) if you want to ROK and roll.
