I hadn’t actually planned to write about my dining experience at Emeril’s Burgers and More, it was a rather impromptu decision on a Tuesday evening and since my husband and I both love their burgers and felt like doing a little gambling, we thought we’d grab dinner there. For those of you who may not be aware, Emeril’s Burgers and More is located inside Sands Casino in South Bethlehem. They’ve been there for quite a few years now and I can honestly say we’ve never had a bad dining experience. Depending on what night of the week it is you may have a little bit of a wait but they’re always able to move things along fairly quickly so it’s not too bad. On this particular evening it was not crowded at all and we were able to be seated right away. They appears they recently changed their menu , see below for more details.
Although I usually opt to create-a-burger, I decided to go for a more traditional Bourbon Street Burger with bacon, grilled onions, cheddar cheese, bbq sauce and I chose a side of french fries. My burger was cooked perfectly, medium rare, and was absolutely wonderful. My husband noticed a new item on the menu right away and since he was feeling adventurous he decided to order their Carolina Chicken and Waffle Burger. I have to say I was very skeptical just because in my mind I couldn’t envision a chicken and waffles burger. When it came however, it was a piece of fried chicken and bacon sandwiched between two waffles with a side of maple syrup & cole slaw. I wasn’t sure exactly how he was going to eat it and he ultimately opted for a knife and fork approach and dipped it into the syrup. He said it was outstanding and he ate the entire thing, which was quite an accomplishment as you can see from the picture. He opted for onion rings as his side and as usual they were cooked perfectly. You know a good onion ring when you bite into it and the whole onion doesn’t slide out of the breaded coating.
I want to also mention our server, Kristin S. because she was just delightful, attentive without being overbearing, very pleasant and she didn’t miss a trick. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience and we will continue to go back in the future.
**As an added bonus: we stopped by Emeril’s Chop House at the end of the evening (which is also located inside Sands Casino) for a slice of their amazing banana cream pie, to go. The picture below really doesn’t do it justice, but I have to say that this is hands-down the best banana cream pie I have ever eaten. Banana cream pie is my favorite pie (pumpkin pie is a close second) but I’ll tell you this place knows how to do banana cream pie! It’ll set you back about $9 for the slice, but it’s worth every penny.
