Bar Burger Noshdown: The five South Sound bar, tavern and brewery burgers you’ve just got to bite into before you die

Thick and towering, goosed with flavor, diminutive and tasty. Today’s bar burgers were the best of the best for flavor, texture and ingredients that I sampled for this week’s 20-burger salute to South Sound bars, taverns and breweries.

Chorizo, Nueske’s bacon, arugula and Gorgonzola – today’s burgers all feature unusual twists that made them memorable. And what’s better than a burger? A burger with fries (just add beer). If you’re a fan of fries, today’s installment is devoted to you.

Today’s burgers: Asado, Maxwell’s, Pacific Grill, The Hub, The Right Spot

Thursday: Crown Bar, Harmon, Bite Restaurant, West End Pub, Cheers South Hill

Wednesday: Engine House No. 9, El Gaucho, Katie Downs, The Parkway, Ram

Tuesday: Powerhouse Brewery, Cliff House, Matador, Blazing Onion and Beach Tavern.

YOUR TURN: Nominate your favorite South Sound burger for inclusion in the TNT Diner Burger of the Month Club. I’ll feature a different burger every month and invite diners to write their own reviews (the best written reviews will earn prizes, such as cookbooks). Just comment here to nominate a burger.
