Live from Peoria, Illinois, it’s Saturday Night Cheeseburger! Starring this week’s host, Ulrich’s Rebellion Room and featuring the Ready For Prime Beef Player, Marty Wombacher! And now, please welcome this week’s host, all the way from Main Street in downtown Peoria...Ulrich’s Rebellion Room!
Tonight's cheeseburger stop is Ulrich's Rebellion Room, which is only a couple minutes drive from where I work, so it's a handy-dandy destination!
Wow, check out the fancy door here, let's go in and see what's happening in here.
It's nice in here, love the dark wooden bar. Let's grab a chair and have a seat.
Friendly bartender, Neil happily serves up a beer and a smile.
Here's the view from my perch at the bar. I just ordered the cheeseburger, so let's take a little tour of this place.
Colored chandelier-like lamps hang overhead the bar and underneath a white tin ceiling, illuminating the bar.
Large leather-stuffed booths line the wall opposite the bar.
Spike's taps shots, part one...
And here's the second taps shot. There's actually more than this, but we have to move on.
In addition to a large selection of draft beers, there's a big variety of bottled beers here as well. They're housed in these refrigerated cupboards behind the bar. I, however, remain loyal to my trusty bottles of Budweiser.
Here's the specials of the night.
This jolly fellow was standing over the special's sign on top of the bar.
There's a wooden table in the front of the bar that looks out onto Main Street.
Behind the booths towards the back of the bar are two more large wooden tables separated by a Notre Dame Mirror on the wall.
Here's a guy playing darts in the back of the bar.
A shot from the opposite end of the bar.
That's my burger cooking on the grill at the back of the bar, it looks like it's about done, so let's go back to our seat.
Check it out, the condiment ring has been placed at our seat at the bar. Looks like burger time is near!
Here we go, Neil serves up this week's cheeseburger!
Wow, this is a leaning tower of a burger! I got the Hickory Burger, which is a half pound burger with cheddar cheese, thick slabs of bacon and topped off with onion rings and their own housemade bbq hickory sauce.
This burger is so big, it was tough to get this one-handed shot! This is one delicious burger!
I had a beer for dessert, took a glance out the door and then...
It's exit, stage left. See yous all tomorrows.
I got the Hickory burger, which is melted cheddar cheese, home cut strips of thick, sugary-cured house-cooked bacon, savory beef, two giant onion rings and special hickory sauce drizzled down this mountain of a burger. And it’s topped off with a bakery fresh bun which takes it over the top for me. This is one of Peoria’s best burgers as far as I can tell, you find a better burger, you tell me and I’ll check it out.
Other items here include a Prime Rib Sandwich, four other styles of cheeseburgers, pizza, cheese fries and all your other standard pub grub, but take it from me, order the Hickory Burger and that’s all you need.
Three and a half Wimpys. A tasty and wonderful cheeseburger at Ulrich's Rebellion Room!
