Hog and Hominy
I had heard about this place when it opened. It's located in a house on a street where several restaurants have opened up fairly recently. It's not far from us, but we had just never made it over there.
We finally went to Hog and Hominy because I had read good reviews of their hamburgers, but they refused to sell us hamburgers. Well, that's not quite right. What they did was refuse to make any changes whatsoever to the burger on their menu. Their online lunch menu describes the sandwich: "JOHN T BURGER | pickled lettuce, american cheese, onion, mustard, fries $12" but makes no mention that it can't be changed. The menu in the restaurant doesn't mention that either. I was a bit shocked when I ordered mine without mustard and was told the chef wouldn't make it any way besides how it's listed on the menu because it's an award-winning burger. We had the pizza instead:
But we won't be back. That's just a bit too much precious for a hamburger, and the pizza's good but not so good that I'm willing to put up with the precious.
Please share a drink with us over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's weekly T Tuesday link-up, and we'll let you choose whatever drink you like and have it anyway that suits you.
