I got a recommendation from Chowhound CWDonald to try Ted’s and the Candlewyck for great burgers. The Candlewyck is closer and we were hunger so we tried it. We have been going to the Wyck since we arrived in the US in 2001 but haven’t officially blogged about it. We have always had good food there and this visit was no exception.
CW suggested that we try the Black & Blue burger or the Steakburger. Donna decided to try the Steakburger. The menu said it came with cheddar cheese, onion sticks and A1 sauce. We forgot to order the fries as CW recommended but the burger was filling enough without them. As you can see the generous 6 oz Patty is covered in onion sticks and Cheddar Cheese. I think they are smart covering the onion sticks with cheese rather than the other way around. The cheese keeps the onion sticks in place. Onion Sticks btw are inch, inch ‘n half pieces of sweet onions battered and deep fried prior to being placed on the burger. The batter was a little thick but they maintained their onion flavour. The first bite you could pick up the A1 Sauce,yes A1 on a burger LOL making the combination of burger, onions and A1 sauce actually taste like a steak. It’s a wonderful burger and worthy of our Best of Bucks Co – Burgers – Top 5 listing.
I had the Chicken Wings. You could smell the heat as the order of 11 wings arrived. The smell was misleading as the actual wings were Medium Heat and most likely mild if you really like heat but I like medium so I was good to go. The wings look crispy but they are not. I found out later that if you want them crispy you can ask and they will do them crispy for you. I didn’t know then, now I know. The small to medium sized wings were actually very good despite my initial disappointment about the crispness. The heat is immediate when you bite into them but it’s a sweet heat and continues into a nice after-burn after you swallow. The flesh is well cooked, moist and a nice chicken flavour. A nice addition was the Blue Cheese Dressingwhich had a nice grey colour to it from the plentiful chunks of blue cheese. This was the best Blue Cheese dressing we have covered on the blog so far. The celery was crisp and fresh. A very good wing and worthy of addition to our Best of Bucks Co – Wings Top 5 list
