Harvey Washbangers, College Station, TX

“EAT, DRINK, DO LAUNDRY - AT HARVEY WASHBANGERS” 
(A burger my friend flew in from the Lone Star State)


Where: Harvey Washbangers – 1802 Texas Ave S, College Station, TX 77840 – (979) 696-6756
What: The Banger Burger 
Build:  An Aggieland classic – a 1/3 lb. fresh, never frozen Angus beef patty, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles and mayo on a grilled sourdough bun.
Comments: This is the 4th burger I've had flown to me overnight and I'm sure it won't be the last...
This Aggieland nugget of goodness was quite a treat. A friend visiting her hometown in Texas was nice enough to package this baby up on her way to the airport and hand delivered it to me the next day, so we were able to side-step FedEx for a change. Needless to say, I'll be rating this burger with a handicap.
The Banger Burger, although only a one-third pounder is a monster to hold, and for me, there were 2 stand-out features of this beauty; first, was the sourdough bun which was unique in that it tasted freshly baked with an almost indistinguishable sweetness to it. It was a soft bread bun, yet hearty enough to handle the burger to the very last bite.
Second was the amount of, and placement of, the toppings and sauce (mayo). The lettuce, tomato and cheese were on top with the onion, pickles and mayo stuffed in underneath. The combination of extras along with their placement was magical because the flavors came together perfectly in your mouth.
And despite this burger’s not-quite-day-old status, the toasted bun's edges were still a bit crispy. I could definitely imagine how good this burger would be when eaten fresh from the grill. So the next time you're in College Station, TX, and you're hungry (or need to do your laundry), be sure to stop by Harvey Washbangers for this hearty Texas Angus burger.  I'm giving it a 7.0 with a 1.5 hc…that makes it an 8.5 on the Bill scale. (But I'd need to eat one fresh for a truly accurate rating). Thanks again DK!
