Honestly, thereâ€™s something slightly wrong with eating a burger whose name is a dropped letter â€œgâ€ away from being called something thatâ€™s a part of my own ass.
I actually tried the original Angus Steak Burger when it first came out and I really didnâ€™t think much of it. However, due to the influx of annoying Angus Diet advertisements I felt compelled to try it again, hoping it would please the Advertising Gods and make those commercials go away. Unfortunately, my theory didnâ€™t work.
I think if I ate a heart attackâ€™s worth of Angus Steak Burgers, only then would I be able to get away from those damn commercials, unless heaven has basic cable.
So what exactly is Anusâ€¦I mean Angus beef? What makes it so special?
Apparently, only 8 percent of the beef in the United States can be considered Angus beef. Itâ€™s known for it outstanding juiciness, tenderness, and flavor. Unfortunately, I couldnâ€™t find out if the Angus beef comes from the ass of a cow, since I think thatâ€™s how Angus got its name.
Enough with the slaughterhouse lesson, letâ€™s talk about the rest of the burger which consists of fire-grilled onions, cap leaf lettuce, red ripe tomatoes, freshly toasted corn-dusted buns, signature steak sauce, juicy bacon, and slightly melted cheese.
I donâ€™t know whose signature is on the steak sauce, but they should definitely erase their signature, because this peppery sauce isnâ€™t very good. Not as peppery as the Salt and Pepper Pringles Potato Chips, but it doesnâ€™t add much to the burger. Besides, if the Angus beef is so damn good, why add some weak sauce to cover it?
Despite the sauce, the Angus Bacon and Cheese Steak Burger isnâ€™t a bad burger. Itâ€™s big and thick, like all burgers should be and the Angus beef is actually pretty tasty, when the sauce doesnâ€™t get in the way. The burger is kind of pricey, but I guess if youâ€™re getting beef that consists of only 8 percent of all the beef in the U.S., there should be a premium on it.
Then again, should there really be a premium on a burger that I might accidentally (or purposely) order as the Anus Steak Burger.

Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Big, thick burger. Angus beef.
Cons: Signature steak sauce isnâ€™t very good. A little expensive. I wish they would change the name, because I donâ€™t like the images of shaking cow butts in my head.
