This edition of Excited about Eating takes us back to one of our favorite neighborhoods in Charlotte, Plaza Midwood, and to Moo and Brew. This burger spot offers “Tried and True” burgers, salads, and a variety of different types of fries.
For our appetizer, we selected the Midwest Cheese Curds, beer battered and served with a tomato infused ranch dip. These curds were great, crispy on the outside, hot and gooey cheese on the inside. The only negative was the grease left in the bottom of the tray. Dora here. Grease? What grease? lol. I wish they’d have come out before our meal. Then we could’ve enjoyed them more before filling up on our burgers. 🙂
I chose the Moo & Brew Burger, braised onions, chili, cheese, and mustard served on a potato bun and upgraded the side to Parmesan, Garlic & Olive Oil fries. This thick and juicy burger was outstanding, with hints of a smoky flavor in the chili. However, what stood out about this meal were those fries. A giant size portion and crisp, with just the right amount of oil so that the parmesan stuck to each fry. I think I could have made my whole meal out of these fries. Worth the upgrade over the typical fries.
Dora here. You know how sometimes you’re just craving a juicy burger? Today was one of those days. We both just wanted a burger, and we’d been eyeing Moo and Brew for a few months now. I like that they offer a “Build Your Own Burger” option. They loaded mine with beef, lettuce, relish, bacon, bleu cheese crumbles and aoili. Messy but YUM! Soft bun, fresh ingredients, just YUM.
How do you like your fries?
We rate this restaurant 4 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving great food.
