Bite Club: Better Billy Goat burger
Breaking news: One of Chicago's most famous sandwiches got a facelift — or at least a bun lift — during the pandemic.
- The results are scrumptious.
What's happening: The Billy Goat burger shed its puffy, dry-ish, kaiser roll for a pliant brioche bun that hugs the greasy patties and offers just a hint of sweetness.
- Justin and Monica noticed the delicious change last week as they devoured double cheeseburgers ($5.99 "the best") at the Goat on lower Michigan.
What they're saying: Billy Goat cook Bouchaib Khribech tells Axios they switched buns after 50 years because their "kaiser roll baker stopped making the buns in the middle of the pandemic."
💭 Monica's thought bubble: I eat a Billy Goat burger about once a year, but with this tasty new bun, I might double that!
💭 Justin's thought bubble: Double the Double cheese? (shouting) Two double cheese!
