Just over two centuries ago, people began putting ground beef between a couple slices of bread, and the hamburger was born. Since the dawn of this beautiful invention, culinarians around the world have been striving to perfect this delectable entrée. At Isle® Casino Hotel Waterloo in Iowa, we have succeeded in this endeavor. The Lone Wolf burger will soon begin its reign as the best burger in the Cedar Valley.
Creating The Lone Wolf Burger
Step 1. Where’s the beef… and more importantly, “Where’s the Pork?”
The first step in creating an AMAZING burger is perfecting the patty. Living in the heart of the Midwest, we are lucky to have an abundance of local meats and local producers happy to help bring our culinary visions to light. Jeff from the Gilbertville Locker worked closely with us to create a signature burger patty. After weeks of brainstorming, a key member of our food & beverage team, Mr. Thomas Roberts, asked a very important question, “Where’s the Pork?!?” Our signature, juicy patty is 90% ground beef and 10% ground pork.
Step 2. Who’s got the best buns in town?
Next, we had to find the perfect bun to house our beautiful burger patty. We immediately knew that not just any bun would do. It had to be fresh. It had to be soft. It had to be unique. With over 60 years of experience in producing the Cedar Valley’s finest baked goods, Johnson’s Bakery helped us create the perfect bun for our Lone Wolf burger. To satisfy our craving for something different, they created a delicious glazed pretzel roll. The rich flavor and wonderful texture perfectly complement our signature burger patty.
Step 3. Top it Off!
Now as everybody knows, a burger simply isn’t complete without the cheese and bacon. Jeff from Gilbertville came to our aid again, providing us with delicious, thick cut bacon. Because of our close proximity to America’s Dairyland, we completed our burger with deliciously tangy Wisconsin sharp cheddar.
And there you have it folks… The Lone Wolf burger is born! As you take your first bite of the amazing Lone Wolf burger and wash it down with a swig of Angry Amber Ale, now you can enjoy and appreciate the time and care our team of chefs and culinary professionals put into creating this delicious treat!
The Lone Wolf will open at Isle Casino Waterloo on Wednesday, September 19th!
