Cheeseburger Chronicles #045

My buddy, Craiggers first took me to Hazzard’s when I was home last May for another friend’s wedding and to catch my brother in the Special Olympics.

Essentially, Hazzard’s is Hillbilly Hooters, which is definitely sayin’ something.

Imagine a plethora of busty co-eds in cut-off jean shorts and shirts that are undoubtedly not-OSHA approved. This is usually capped off with a cowboy hat and/or cowboy boots.

Ah yes, and the beers are served in Mason jars whilst country music blares non-stop in the background. All-in-all the place has my stamp of approval.

The question is whether or not their signature item, the Hazzard Burger would have the same positive impact. The Hazzard Burger is—in all reality—just a Luther Burger, a bacon cheeseburger with Krispy Kreme donuts in lieu of buns.

Let’s be honest, I pretty much had to order one, right?!

Cheeseburger #045

What: Hazzard Burger

Where: Hazzard’s Bar and Grill: Mankato, Minnesota

When: April 2, 2010

How (was it): Interesting is the first word that comes to mind.

The burger was overcooked, which killed the overall experience because it was a pretty thick patty and that made it very hockey puckish. Somehow the whole donut thing worked pretty well, despite the overcooked burger.

The burger really needed to be slathered in pickles or something to counteract all the sweet from the donut, but in the end it wasn’t too shabby.

I mean, I’d never in a million years order it again, but it wasn’t too shabby.

  1. Peckers, located in Osage Beach, MO, is widely known to be the definitive “Hillbilly Hooters”.


    • Color me intrigued.


      • Actually, all restaurants on Lake of the Ozarks have names such as “Peckers”, “The Horny Toad”, “Chicky’s”, “Dirty Duck”, “Shorty Pants”, “Pickled Pete’s”, “Half-Sauced BBQ”, “Bucknaked Restaurant and Marina” – it seems to be some sort of requirement. It is the Daytona Beach of the Midwest after all…


      • It also just leaped to the top of my “potential vacation destinations” list for 2010!!


  2. I have to say. Med-Rar with pickles would be a great burger…


    • It’s unfortunate that at Hillbilly Hooters the phrase “medium rare” or “medium” or even “raw” all mean “cook the shit out of it.”
