Fight Club Sandwich, with Poll! The Tilted Kilt vs. The Brick House Tavern + Tap in a Meat Smackdown

Fellow St. Louis metro-area residents, we've been blessed this year with not one, but two new restaurants where the food is secondary to the scantily clad waitresses who bring that food to your table: the Tilted Kilt in Arnold and the Brick House Tavern + Tap in Chesterfield.

Yes, that really is the entrance to the Tilted Kilt pictured above. Rest assured, the women who work there look somewhat more lifelike.

At any rate, rather than review these restaurants, I figured that, as we continue our Fight Club Sandwich series of smackdowns,  we'd compare the two restaurants' "meat" -- if you know what I mean...

The Tilted Kilt's BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger

Oh, this is a fine piece of meat. Look at the curve of that one bare bun. And it comes already dripping wet thanks to the restaurant's Guinness barbecue sauce. All those thin strands of fried onion atop the burger are a bit much, though. I prefer a more trimmed appearance.

Some men like their meat curvy. Others preferred a more elongated body. This is the burger for the latter group, long and thin and, like most supermodels, very saucy and a little greasy.

The winner?
