Grill ‘Em All is a gourmet food truck out of the Los Angeles, CA area that specializes in heavy metal music and rockin’ burgers. They also have the distinction of recently coming in first place in the FoodNetwork’s reality TV show about the growing gourmet food truck culture in the US called The Great Food Truck Race. They do a great job of using their Facebook page and Twitter page to update their burgerfans in realtime as to where their next stop will be.
I was in Long Beach for a trade show and I knew that I had to hit up the Grill ‘Em All Truck while I was in the area. I took a fellow trade show traveler with me on the 30 minute drive from Long Beach to Silverlake Drive in Los Angeles to get our burger fix for the night.
The Behemoth is described as a burger with grilled cheese buns (a grilled cheese sandwich for the top bun and a grilled cheese sandwich for the bottom bun!), BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, pickles, bacon and beer soaked onions.
You can almost tell from the description that eating this burger is going to be bit of an adventure on its own. When eating an extravaganza burger like this one, the first bite is always the most challenging. You almost think that your mouth just won’t be able to encompass the whole thing, but then by some miracle, you’re able to give the cheeseburger that extra smush to make it fit.
To be honest, this burger seems more like a burger novelty as opposed to one of those burgers you crave for after eating. The combination of grilled cheese buns, cheddar cheese and bacon would be a barrel full of awesome by itself, the burger addition makes sure you get your fix in true gluttonous style. This is one of those burgers that you eat so you can brag to your buddies that you ate it, and then challenge them to eat one or be the butt of your burger jokes for years to come.
On this particular day, I hadn’t eaten anything since a light, early breakfaast, so when 8:45PM rolled around, this burger went down faster than a cartoon character stepping on a banana peel. After devouring this burger and a few fries, I was more than full. But that didn’t stop me from eating a second burger at the Grill ‘Em All Burger Truck.
While I’m not sure that I’d eat another Behemoth burger, it was definitely worth the experience and the drive into LA to check out this heavy metal cheeseburger. However, I would definitely recommend that burgerjunkies anywhere even halfway near the LA area to track down the Grill ‘Em All Burger truck for one reason, and one reason only: The Dee Snider Burger.
- Burger Juiciness (because a dry burger is just wrong) 6
- Bun Goodness (a quality meat holder is essential) 8
- Burger Flavor (is the meat itself extra tastilicious) 5
- Burger Value (you can pay too much for a .99 cent burger and an amazing burger can seem like a steal at $20…and vice versa) 5
- B Factor (this is that super subjective thing that makes each review unique. That gene se qua, that something special about the experience. Could be the special sauce, could be the atmosphere of the joint, could be the ridiculous shakes that you paired the burger with, or it could be some french fries that make you wanna cry) 7
