Eat of the Week: This Off Menu Burger at 8Cuts That’s a Worst Kept Secret

Ask for the Meathead and thank us later.

There’s a special burger you can sink your teeth into at 8Cuts Burgers, and it ain’t written on their menu. And if you love your burgers with less of the veg and just full on with the juicy beef and saucy add-ons, then this off-menu dish is definitely for you.

The Meathead has actually been on the secret menu of the burger restaurant for quite awhile, and since you can customize your burgers at 8Cuts, you may have probably enjoyed something quite similar to the flavor and topping combination of it. The formula for this burger is delicious enough that the restaurant had to give it a name and a space on their secret menu — and here’s what you’ll get when you order one.

This off-menu dish is dedicated to all the meatloving foodies, everyone hungry for the burger but would rather skip some of its requisite greens. Here you have in between soft buns either a houseblend or grassfed patty (take your pick), topped with melted cheddar cheese and 8Cuts’ sauce #3 that has embraced a generous smearing of caramelized onions. Okay, before you go on to rant that onion is still a vegetable, give this one a chance: it’s cooked the best way that rids of the sharp flavor that some dislike, and now it’s sweeter and luscious, and pairs well with the saltiness of the cheese and the unctuous beef patty.

So the next time you’re headed to 8Cuts for that burger fix, remember the name: Meathead.

The Dish: Meathead (P195 for 1/4 patty, P265 for 1/3 patty; off-menu, available across all branches)
