The Best Burger I Ever Ate


After our morning jaunt to the Fisherman's Wharf at Monterey, we walked down a path that led to Cannery Row. At 10:30 am, my sister-in-law (and obvious kindred spirit), announced she was craving a big, fat, juicy burger. My response? "I am always craving a big, fat, juicy burger."

I got the Cowboy Burger: Thick bacon, yummy barbecue sauce, a substantial amount of cheese, and onion rings bigger than my face. This is the food of my people.

 We took a gamble and ended up at the Cannery Row Brewing Company. I'm going to just be a tad over-dramatic (shocker) and say the CRBC changed my life. It was hands down the best burger I ever ate. Juice, flavorful meat, a sturdy yet supple bun, and toppings that almost (almost) out-did the beauty of the patty.

And the ranch? It was the best ranch I've ever had. I asked for the recipe but they were unfortunately mum about that.

I loved the ambiance. The view off the patio is amazing with a nice shot of this iconic building.

Our waiter was awesome, down to earth, and was willing to joke with us as we asked him question after question about the restaurant, food, and area. He even offered to bring me straw when he saw me inhaling my cup of ranch.

Pre-inhale. Ah! Naive girl... you don't even know how your life is about to change.
Great food plus the ocean? I'm in heaven.

Thanks, Cannery Row Brewing Company!
I have not been compensated for this post, but if the CRBC wants to give me a free burger as a way to say thank you, I won't be ashamed to ask for dessert, also.
