Big City Diner is pretty much our spot. It’s the place we go when we want to eat out but still feel at home. It’s the perfect place to meet up with friends because they have a little bit of everything. The service is always friendly and fast, and the atmosphere is always comfortable and relaxed. Yeah, it’s our spot.
I know I’ve told you about Big City Diner before, but today we’re going to talk burgers. BCD does not disappoint in the outstanding diner style burger department. There are several choices, including a classic burger, teriyaki burger, chili burger, and even a veggie burger. They’re all juicy and square. Don’t ask me why, but they taste awesome, so who cares.
This time I went for the Paniolo Burger. It’s got a spicy guava barbecue sauce and crispy bacon. Normally it comes with crispy onion strings, but that’s not my jam. Oh, and don’t forget the lovely slice of sharp cheddar. This is what I get when I’m feeling indulgent. The barbecue sauce has a noticeable kick to it. It’s pretty outstanding.
Geoff’s favorite is the BBQ Meatloaf Burger. It’s two slices of meatloaf, caramelized onions, and guava barbecue sauce. It’s a knife and fork burger for sure. The meatloaf is moist and well-seasoned, and the sauce really takes it over the top. We had to walk to the restaurant just to make sure he had earned enough calories for the day to eat one. It’s his number one choice.
The fries are nothing special. I’m not that into fries, so it doesn’t really bother me. You can upgrade to garlic fries, and I’ve heard those are pretty good. I’m so full by the time I’ve finished my burger, they don’t really get eaten.
We went to BCD on a Tuesday, so we got 15% off our food for Twitter Tuesday. Follow Big City Diner on Twitter to get the password each week. They have great specials going on all the time. And they make a pretty good raspberry margarita. It’s totally my spot.
We’ve been to three of their locations on the island, and they’ve all been great. Get yourself to Big City Diner and enjoy some delicious diner food with friends. I know you’ll go home happy.
