Blake’s Bar-B-Q & Burgers is preparing for its shot in the national spotlight.
A film crew with the Travel Channel will call on the 30-year-old restaurant on Feb. 4. Blake’s is to be featured on an upcoming episode of "Burger Land."
“We don’t know what to expect,” owner Don Blake told 29-95. “We’re just excited about the opportunity.”
Burger lovers are invited to drop by the restaurant on the day of the shoot. Blake said the crew was expected to spend four to five hours at the restaurant.
So what’s the big deal with Blake’s burgers?
In a 2009 Cook’s Tour review, Alison Cook gave the burger an A rating and said:
This burger succeeds madly on the sandwich level. It’s a judicious mix of flavors and textures: the crustiness of the patty, the soft, sweet slide of caramelized onion; the decided snap of all that crunchy chopped iceberg and pickle. The mustard adds kick; the mayo and cheese exert their softening influence; and the thin bun holds up nicely, thanks to the energetic butter-browning both sides undergo on the griddle.
