Allen Burger Venture (ABV) is definitely my go-to restaurant for burgers. They have a large selection with impressive ingredient options – not just your plain old lettuce and tomato!
If I’m being honest, I order the same burger every single time. But since I knew I was writing a blog post about the food this time around, I was excited to try a different option for a change. Luckily for me, my friend was willing to split two burgers so I was able to stick with my usual and still try something new.
We started with the tater tots, served with an applewood bacon & scallion sour cream, and a cider apple sauce. I was only going to try one or two and then next think I know… the plate was empty. So good!
For the burgers we shared the number 3 (Caramelized “ommegang” onions & applewood bacon, porter cheddar) and my usual number 5 (“Jiffy” peanut butter, pickled jalapenos, applewood bacon, white cheddar). The caramelized onions really made the burger; I was happy I tried it and would get it again! For the number 5, I know that peanut butter with jalapenos sounds like it would be a weird combo, but it is seriously delicious and not overly hot.
I also have to mention that ABV has an awesome craft beer selection. This is great, because it is typically packed in the restaurant so you sometimes need to have a drink while waiting for a table. I tried the Zombie Killer Cider on draft. Super refreshing and perfect for sipping on the patio on a beautiful day!
ABV is located at 175 Allen. Check out their full menu here.
