Description: The Lockdown Warden at the Lockdown Bar + Grill is great culinary execution. A number of ingredients not found in the typical burger make their way into this masterpiece. A certified Angus beef patty infused with bacon, leeks, garlic, and shallots has melted Merkt's Cheddar in the middle of the patty. Top this off with fried leeks and shallots tossed in truffle oil and you have a lot of complex flavor. The melted cheese is rich and the pretzel bun pairs well with the saltiness of the beef. The sweetness from the truffle oil and fried leeks combines perfectly with the bacon and hints of garlic. The amazing part about this much dedication to a single burger is that Lockdown has several more that deserve a top spot on the list as well. In multiple trips to Lockdown I can confirm they are consistent and their burgers always great. Lockdown is devoted to making top quality burgers, and they rank amongst the best in the world. Add in some friendly service, good drinks, and lively music and it's a neighborhood favorite.
