The No Pants Burger at Absinthe

Copy Link

The burger is far beyond a concessions stand burger that one may expect just outside a circus. A soft pretzel bun comes layered with two short rib blended brisket patties, smashed with grilled onions so that the edges are charred and caramelized, melted American cheese, tangy secret sauce, and a generous handful of thick-cut dill pickles. The vegan version is nearly identical.

The wait for the burger at Au Cheval in Chicago is legendary, stretching as long as five hours. And diners say it’s worth every minute. Sister restaurant Bavette’s at the Park MGM serves a similar burger, the simply named grilled cheeseburger with an eight-ounce patty, sharp American cheese, dijonnaise, hand cut fries, and a farm fresh fried egg, minus the long wait.
