Bareburger- Hartsdale

Standard

Location: 265 Commercial St, Hartsdale, NY 10531

In an unprecedented move, never before seen by the eyes of a Frickle Chick… a restaurant has placed TWO different styles of frickle on one menu. Finally. The world is catching on. Not only are there two types of fried pickles at Bareburger, the whole menu is fantastic, organic, creative, delicious treats. Becca took approximately 4 hours deciding what to order for her entree since everything looked so good.

The condiment selection was on a level all it’s own. If the Frickle Chicks did an award show (which maybe we should consider) Bareburger would definitely get the Condiment Award of the Century. Hands down. Every dish came with it’s own selection of multiple, hand-mixed condiments.  

Finally! A dining establishment that gets it.

 To be fair, we have to rate the texture of each type of frickle individually. They each had their own merits worthy of distinctive recognition. These ratings were established with the help of celebrity guest fricklers, Jennifer and Justin.

The secret to a happy marriage? Feed each other frickles at least 1 time per day.

These frickles had hot pepper flakes mixed into the batter, which was outrageously delicious. Even though the spears are supposed to be spicy, we thought the chips were much spicier. The batter was great, but they were a little too crunchy, somehow. 

 

 

Cornmeal Crusted Spicy Pickle Spears Texture:

Still very good, but the spears weren’t spicy, as advertised. The batter tasted yummy, but some of it fell off when you took a bite. There were also two spears that were only battered on two sides, so the unbreaded area was a little burned.

Serving Size:

Whole Pickle = 4

Whole Pickle = 4

Nice healthy servings of both. 

Condiment Selection:

Huge Ass Dill = 5 (highest)

Each serving of fricks came with 2 homemade sauces, and there were multiple sauces that came with the other dishes. Our favorites were the Thai Chili Mayo and Buttermilk Ranch.

Wait Time:

Pickle Spear = 3

Pretty average. A little over 10 minutes.

$6.95 for each order.

Bareburger is out of this world. We could eat here every day for the rest of our lives and be happy little Frickle Chicks. They even have brunch. Brunch?? Brunch!

But we are here to rate the fried pickle portion of the evening, and must stay focused. They were great, not the best we’ve ever had, but the overall experience was stellar.

Long  time no see, our long lost frickle fans.  We know an update is long overdue, and we apologize for making you wait.  But fear no longer, here is our latest post about some damn fine frickles.

While strolling down Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains, some outdoor tables set up with Heinz Ketchup and Sriracha sauce caught our eyes right away.  First delicious condiments, then seeing frickles on the menu, they didn’t have to try much harder to lure us in to their establishment.  Once inside we were lead to a table in the back, which was not too bad, except for the overwhelmingly loud music.  We enjoyed some ice cold margaritas served in mason jars, while we waited for our fried pickles.

Alas! Our Frickles have arrived! They were steamin’ hot and ready for our bellies! Or was it that our bellies were ready for them?

They were yummy and crunchy, but not TOO crunchy.  They were thin and still a little soft, is crunchy and soft possible at the same time? I suppose today it is.

Serving Size:

Huge Ass Dill = 5 (highest)

Seemed to be close to 25 frickles? Is it even possible!? We were so stuffed we couldn’t even finish all of them ( I know, I know….)

Condiment Selection:

Stem

Pickle Stem = 1 (lowest)

I hate to say it, but the condiment was very unsatisfying.  Although the menu read horseradish and ranch, the 1 condiment served, tasted like a boring and bland ranch, nothing special.  For those who know us, also know we love our condiments, so were not very happy about this option. Luckily, we did manage to get our hands on some ketchup and sriracha sauce to make up for the sad ranch.

Wait time was very short and we were pleasantly surprised when the fricks popped up at our table so quickly!

Our waitress was…. mehhh.  She wasn’t very friendly, but also wasn’t rude. She didn’t do anything to impress us, but neither did she do anything to make us talk smack.  Just an overall meh experience.

Price:

Whole Pickle = 4

Whole Pickle = 4

$7.00, for 25 chips, was certainly a good price.  It was pretty average range for the frickles we have seen around, but we also got a lot more for our money at the fox.

Overall:

Whole Pickle = 4

Whole Pickle = 4

The frickles were definitly yummmy, but didn’t blow us out of the water.  They had a good texture, but were a bit too salty for both the frickle chicks, as well as the frickle guest that joined along for this visit.  Overall, we did enjoy our frickle experience and the frickles are definitely worth checking out and enjoying if you’re in the neighborhood, and enjoy a good crunchy bite.
