After months of anticipation, Cullum’s Attaboy is now out on the town, courtesy of their airstream trailer. The menu is simple: burgers and fries. We went by the trailer a few weeks ago and had a cheddar cheeseburger with bacon and mushrooms and sweet potato fries. Every burger comes with fries, priced around $9 or $10. The ingredients are of great quality. We especially liked the handmade seeded bun; it was appropriately low weight (not the overly dense variety that tries to call attention to its artisanal nature). The bacon was a good wide cut, the sweet potato fries sported an intriguing coating, and the lettuce was actually green rather than the crappy sea-foam mist shade of iceburg. This was one unique gourmet burger.
But for whatever reason — crazy rush, fryer snafu, still getting the kinks out of the trailer — the burger was overcooked and the fries were swimming in so much oil OPEC was probably going to investigate.
Exceptionally strong word of mouth (as in, “This place is incredible!”) sent us back. And this time the food was incredible. As in delicious! The burger of the day came with a beef patty, Boudin sausage, creamy Gouda, and cayenne ranch. The flavors mixed amazingly well. And the sweet potato fries … some of the best I’ve ever had. The rumors are all true.
