The burger’s standout ingredient is its one-half pound patty made with fresh Creekstone Farms beef.
At the recently renovated and renamed Bailey’s Bistro, the classic hamburger has been reimagined and revamped. Dressed with lettuce, purple onions and aioli, and sandwiched between a Kaiser bun, the burger’s standout ingredient is its one-half pound patty made with fresh Creekstone Farms beef. Creekstone Farms steaks and Black Angus beef contain no added hormones or antibiotics and are USDA-certified organic. The result is an unbelievably tender burger that highlights the beef flavor. Served with fries, the dish is a $8.99. Add cheddar, Swiss, smoked gouda or grilled mushrooms for 69 cents each.
