Also excellent is the "BBBB" — a bison-and-bacon barbecue burger on brioche. (That's five B's, is it not?) This brings a juicy, oozing mix of flavors to the table, featuring a sweet and spicy barbecue sauce that melds with an earthy blue cheese to provide a perfect finishing touch to the bison. A burger made with this many components has the potential to leave a woman up to her elbows in sauce and cheese, but the kitchen manages to pile on just the right quantities of toppings not to stray toward gratuitousness. In other words, you're all clear to order it on a first date.

So why go to Mike Shannon's Grill when there are hundreds of other places to get good burgers and steaks?
