A Triple D Adventure (Diners, Drive-ins and Dives)- Day 1

Chris and I are addicted to the Food Network show, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Host Guy Fieri visits various diners, samples their food, and describes it. When we travel, we try to eat at a triple D site if it's possible. Our recent trip to Omaha, NE afforded us the following culinary adventure. 
Brewburger's
Brewburger's

We found Brewburgers easily enough. However, the trick is finding the entrance to the restaurant's parking lot. You actually have to enter through the neighboring hotel's parking lot to get to Brewburgers. When we entered we asked the waitress, "what did Guy have when he was here. She told us he had the following:

The Cheesy Sacramento

Six ounces of beef with a mountain of crispy cheese.


House Fries

French fries plated with a delicious, spicy Cajun chicken gravy, white cheddar cheese curds, sour cream & chives.


Old Fashioned Brisket Sandwich

Photobucket

Cured & smoked brisket piled high on Rye with your choice of Swiss cheese or Havarti cheese & mustard.
Italian French fries plated with Alfredo sauce, Gorgonzola cheese, bacon & chives

The food might look and sound weird...but it was delicious.

Troy and I like to watch that show too. I bought him one of the Triple D cookbooks too. I'm not sure about that first sandwich and fries but the second sandwich and fries sounds like something I would like!

HS,
The first sandwich is a good hamburger made special with the ring of fried cheese. I tore the cheese into small pieces and stacked it on the burger. It was the only way I could figure out how to eat it. LOL

Sam Amato said that DDD's host Guy was just like he was on television. He stayed in the restaurant the whole time and entertained the staff and customers alike.
