Real Food Photos - Never Food Snobbery - My goal is for you to taste exactly what you read about here when you order your food. I make a constant effort to publish non-biased, honest comments. All too often I've read reviews from "burger experts" praising a gourmet burger only to be disappointed come judgment day. For this reason, I do not go into a burger establishment with cameras blaring, announcing who I am... maybe that's the difference, you decide...

This post is one of my "best of" and worthy of an annual repost... Where: AJ's Pizza, Butler, NJ
What: The Mac & Cheese Burger Build: 1/2 lb. 100% Black Angus beef patty, homemade Mac & Cheese, 2 batter-fried onion rings, bakery fresh bun.
Comment: I tried AJ's on a tip I got from a woman my wife works with... she told us to check out the new burgers that AJ's has added to its menu on the back of a local coupon circular. This led to me checking their web site and eventually placing an order. I've had their Italian food before, the calzone w/ham and the cheesesteak stromboli are def above average so I thought we might have a shot at the burger being decent. Needless to say, I broke all kinds of golden rules by ordering a burger at a pizza joint, but hey, no risk, no reward right? It was great. No, no... I mean it's "order a second one" great. The mac and cheese is advertised as homemade and it tastes just that. The burger is great quality and the patty was cooked per my request, a perfect medium/rare. When I saw their interest in my sandwich, I cut a few small pieces for my wife and her father to try (the very audible "yummy" noises I was making amped-up their curiosity). You must to realize, for my wife to even "try" a burger with such strange (fattening) toppings, tells me AJ's is on to something here. The cheese was not only smooth and plentiful, it was a bit sharp and tasted like "real" cheese. The elbow macaroni was done so perfectly it launched a few "high school cafeteria" memories. I thought that 2 large batter-dipped onion rings was a bit of a strange added topping and one that should be reserved for BBQ cowboy burgers and the like, but they actually added just the right amount of crunch and it all worked well together. I'm already planning a trip back for this very same burger. 10/10
