It is not true that only men love their burgers. Healthy, hearty and meaty women like me and my cousin Ritchie do, too. And we travel all the way to the opposite end of the purple line just for the good stuff. The Big Bite good stuff.
A tiny joint hidden in the back streets of North Point, The Big Bite is very easy to miss. But once you find it, it’s gonna be very hard to not miss it.
The choices here are not as extensive as other burger places, but where there are mushrooms, there is a satisfied Jin.
And very satisfied Jin is! Here at The Big Bite, you can specify how you want your meat done. Because they cook the patty as you order it, a bit of a wait is expected, but my, how you will be rewarded! I ask for medium rare, and they give me medium rare. Thick, tender and juicy patty on a bed of mushrooms and gravy, and all that wonderful beefy juices oozing out with each forkful, I would give absolutely anything to trade places with that soggy bottom bun! And those buns… please do not get me started on them Big Bite buns. They are not the usual soft and mushy ones you get out there. These buns are toasted perfectly, with the outer layer a bit grainy, a bit crisp, a bit sweet.
Ritchie wants to order the Classic Burger. Gasp!!! Like a mom who catches her child red-handed, I scowl deeply at her and nag her into ordering the cheese burger. After all, what is a burger without the cheese??? And ain’t it a beauty?
We order a side of chili to go with our burgers. I pour some on mine. Sloppy Joe Mushroom Burger. Yummm. A REAL burger. For REAL women. Healthy, hearty, meaty women. I am sorry, but Big Bite burgers are just not for sissies.
