Sometimes you just know a burger is going to be a great one as soon as it's placed in front of you, and there are so few times a burger actually floors me - this was one of those times. The name of this beauty alone - "go big or go home" was enough to suck me in (I'm easy when it comes to burgers) and this one had me at "hello". I wasn't even looking for a burger, I was just visiting the Merchant with my Wife for our monthly Polenta appy (that's another review in itself) and a few glasses of wine when this burger jumped off the menu. Of all the times to be caught without my camera, sorry, but we'll have to settle for iPhone photos till my next visit.
2 full 8oz fresh ground patties grilled to medium-rare perfection.

Bottom to top description: burger patty, portobello mushroom, Swiss/Parmesan blend, thick cut hickory smoked bacon, burger patty, grilled tomato & onion, Swiss/Parmesan blend, another layer of thick cut hickory smoked bacon, all on a toasted kaiser roll and all served by our awesome waiter (Jimmy) and washed down with a glass of Chianti = Perfection. You NEED to go to the Merchant House Tavern. 10/10
