When the chef of 16 years ventured out to start his own business, he decided to adopt the idea of Cheese Skirt Burgers after coming across it online.

I had my Cheese Skirt Burger with a side of Cajun Fries ($9.50). A bed of shredded cheddar cheese was placed on the grill. The cheese melted and crisped up, before a beef patty was laid on top of it.

The beef patty, topped with more shredded cheese, was quite the tasty combination. The patty, however, was a little too well done for my liking, and was not as juicy as I would have liked it to be.

Currently, their weekday lunch promotion, available till 2pm, offers one side, with the purchase of any burger, for just $1.50. Rather than the typical set with 2 sides at an additional $3.

Besides their signature Cheese Skirt Burger, I also had their Big Dad Wolf’s Pork Burger ($7). This pork burger had additional slices of bacon which made for a hearty meal. Unfortunately, the pork was quite a letdown as it was really dry. The sauce slathered on the patty did make it slightly better.

I opted for the set with 2 sides ($3) : Garden Salad and Soup of the Day. The Cauliflower Soup was creamy, yet not too jelak. The free-flow croutons undeniably added a nice touch too.

The side of salad was also a refreshing break from the sinful burgers.

Skirt & Dirt offers more than just these items. They also have Fish and Chicken burgers, as well as Dirt Fries ($5) on their menu.
