City Pages' Description

The burger concept from Parasole-the restaurateurs behind Manny's, Salut, and Chino Latino, among others-anchors the east end of the Calhoun Commons shopping mall and has made the former Applebee's space more modern and appealing, with its black-and-orange color scheme and sleek-looking bar. Parasole has a reputation for brash, cheeky humor and bold decor, but except for a Chuck Close-style image of a burger-eating man on the wall-depicting a rather unappetizing thicket of arm hair-the restaurateur's signature kitsch seems somewhat toned down. The Burger Jones team visited the country's best burger joints before deciding on their meat's signature mix-a blend of chuck, brisket, and hanger steak that comes out a little chewy, with a robust, beefy flavor. The buns resemble a dense, eggy challah, sprinkled with sesame seeds on top. And while the menu lists all the usual suspects, such as bacon-cheddar and mushroom-Swiss, someone in your group will inevitably order the White Trash Burger, topped with fried cheese curds, Velveeta, and chicken-fried bacon. The burgers are good and the salted caramel malt is better, but none of it is worth waiting two hours.

    I had a delicious Black & Blue burger, two miller lites and split an order of fries. The food was good. I would go again, but I wasn't wowed.

    Voted Best Bloody Mary by City Pages in 2011! This Bloody is strong, and comes with pickles, sausages, olives, and cheese curds. Basically a meal in itself!

    Yummy in my tummy!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be sure to try the fry tower: three styles of fries - regular, waffle, and sweet potato with choice of 3 muy delicioso dipping sauces...

    The White Trash Burger (velveeta, cheese curds, chicken-fried bacon) is easily in my top-3 all-time best burgers, and I've had some good ones.
