Run, Don't Walk to Shula Burger on US-192 (Review)

Have you eaten at Shula's Steakhouse in the Dolphin Hotel at WDW before? They've got a new fast-casual burger joint open now just outside Disney property (near the Target on West-192), and it's delicious. Prices are higher than what you'd pay for a fast food burger, but the comparisons end there. It's upscale and tasty all the way here!

We had both the French Onion burger and the Southwest, and could not decide which was better. Flavors were complex and interdependent - no one item was allowed to dominate - and everything was clearly fresh. The meat was a mix of Black Angus chuck, short rib, and brisket. It tasted like a fast food burger in exactly the same way that a duck usually plays golf on the moon (in other words, not at all).

We will be back time and again. Sure, the prices are a bit higher, but we're talking food in a different class.
