Scaddy's: Can I have a 1/2 lb of Guacamole with that please?

While running an errand one Saturday last month, a bout of serious hunger came over me. That is bound to happen when you don't eat breakfast. I turned down a main thoroughfare and was on the lookout for a restaurant calling my name. I felt like a coach being interviewed during the NFL draft. When asked what he is looking for, the response is often: "the intangibles." What this really means is that he doesn't know what he is looking for but will know it when he sees it. I often feel the same way when looking for eating establishments.

On the right side of the road I saw what looked like a Wendy's restaurant. It wasn't Wendy's but it was obvious that until fairly recently, it was. "Scaddy's" was the name on the sign and it was exactly what I was looking for: a burger joint!

Ruby and I went inside and I looked to indulge on a burger that could use up all my caloric allowance for the day. What an exciting feeling!

After we ordered and sat down, I noticed that some of the people around us were eating breakfast food. It looked delicious (actually anything did at that moment) so I looked over the menu again with curiosity. They have a "Breakfast Feast" along with Swedish Stuffed Pancakes, Breakfast Sandwiches and Burritos and French Toast. Could I eat a large burger, fries and breakfast? No, better not go totally on impulse this time. That was a monumental achievement for me.

What I did order was the Blaze Burger. I asked for something spicy and this came highly recommended. It has Hot Peppers, Tomatoes, Lettuce, Onions, and Pepperjack Cheese with a 1/4 lb beef patty. Depending on the severity of your hunger, you can get a second patty to make a 1/2 pound burger. I held off on this double patty on this trip.

The pepperjack cheese on a perfectly cooked patty is like chocolate and a Dr. Pepper (a personal favorite). The tomatoes, lettuce and onions were very fresh and full of flavor; reminded me of Habit Burger Grill. I will say however that the hot peppers will blow you away. They are not kidding with the name "Blaze." I had to remove most of them just to finish it.

What is better than going out to eat? It's going out to eat again at that same place, assuming you enjoyed it. Yes it was two Saturdays later and I had not eaten breakfast. You think that I would learn a lesson here. This time, Ruby and I found another Scaddy's right by CousCous Grill. Oh the anxiety; which to choose? Ultimately Scaddy's won out. A double patty burger was calling my name.

1/2 lb of Guacamole

This time I went with the Guacamole Burger. I think that there was a 1/2 lb. of guacamole in addition to the meat. They say that "Taste is Everything" and they mean it. It was a wonderful burger and the guacamole was smooth, fresh, and tasty. There was so much that I got to have guacamole fries. Not a problem to complain about.

Can I also just share how wonderful the staff were at both locations. So friendly, welcoming and looking to make your experience and happy one. The cook even came out on the first visit to welcome us and the other patrons.
