I’ve reached burger number four and the end of my membership to the New York Burger Appreciation Society. No more burgers delivered to my office weekly. Sad face.

To read all about what this mysterious burger society is, check out some of my previous posts about Burger Heaven, Black Shack Burger and Blue 9 Burger. On to burger number four.

Chirping Chicken – 1219 1st Avenue, Manhattan, New York

Burger number four was from Chirping Chicken. From their menu, I received:

  • Deluxe Mexican Burger: Topped with jalapenos and fried onions
  • Fries

This was a great burger to end these burger deliveries with. The Deluxe Mexican Burger was a 1/4 inch burger loaded with fried onions and jalapenos. It came on a typical hamburger bun and was cooked perfectly pink in the middle. This burger was very spicy, and I loved it. There were LOTS of jalapenos and fried onions on top of the burger. The onions weren’t too overpowering due to the large amount of jalapenos. This flavor dominated the burger.

Some of the jalapenos spilled over onto the fries which added a hint of spice to them as well. The fries were very crunchy and had a little bit of salt on them. This, combined with the slight spiciness of the jalapenos, kept me happy.

Best of all, Chirping Chicken provided a wet nap with the burger and fries. A nice and much needed touch.

The Verdict

The Deluxe Mexican Burger from Chirping Chicken was a surprise. I expected a fairly regular burger but was pleasantly surprised when I was greeted with jalapenos and fried onions instead. If you don’t like spicy food, this burger isn’t for you. However, if you do, this burger is up your alley. It came cooked to perfection and the spiciness of the jalapenos kicked it up a notch. I probably won’t go out of my way to get Chirping Chicken again, but if I find myself there than I’ll definitely be ordering the Deluxe Mexican Burger.
