Last week we told you about Village Whiskey's (118 S. 20th St.) new burger of the month program. Well, good news folks, the first October BOTMs are rolling out today and we had a chance to try the first of the series, the VW Tailgate. Think of it as a combo of VW's classic burger (i.e. a super juicy patty and buttery brioche bun) meets a Philly roast pork sandwich. So yeah, it's basically a burger piled high with fatty slices of roast pork, melted prov, garlicky broccoli rabe and a just spicy enough cherry pepper aioli.
The burger is available on its own for $16 but you can upgrade to a totally awesome combo with Old Bay fries and a tallboy of PBR for $22. Obviously we went with the second option and it did not disappoint. Stay tuned for monthly specials like patty melts, Thanksgiving burgers and Chinese New Year-inspired burgers coming up in the next couple of months.
So anyway, eat this immediately.
