Review of 25 Degrees in Huntington Beach

Sasaki Time Fans it's time for another food review! This time it is 25 Degrees in Huntington Beach! Apparently 25 degrees is the difference between medium and medium rare! Who knew? Anyways, I love burgers and while it seems like everyone is doing customized burgers these days, it was about the spike sodas and the spiked milkshakes that really caught my eye! But more about that in a bit!
The menu is simple enough but there are so many great choices that it's tough to narrow it down.

Then to make it even tougher, they have a great selection of cocktails, wine, beer and spiked sodas and spiked milkshakes! While I tried to figure out what to put on my burger, I ordered a spike cream soda! Bulleit bourbon, vanilla liqueur and ginger ale blended together perfectly to create a very strong cream soda! It was delicious and I could have had another but I wanted to make sure I had room for my burger and my spiked milkshake!
We ordered a half order of onion rings and fries! The onion rings were enormous and delicious! Amazing batter that was salty but not overwhelming! The onions were not strong at all and really moist! Just perfect! I actually liked the onion rings more than the fries which were still good and flavorful but not as great as the onion rings!
We were there for Happy hour and they had some of their appetizers for $5 so we got an order of the chili-honey chicken wings! I could have eaten the entire plate! The sweetness of the honey combined with the kick of the chili peppers made for a really tangy chicken wing!
I finally decided on getting the number one! It was a ground sirloin burger with caramelized onions, prelibato gorgonzola, crescenza, bacon, arugula, and thousand island! when the burgers came out all I could think of was that this was one of the largest burgers I have ever seen! The patty alone was at least an inch thick! One of the best burgers ever! The burger was so juicy and all the ingredients blended together perfectly!
My friend Jessica made her own burger and what I really loved on hers was the combination of bacon and proscuitto. The prosciutto was sliced thicker than what I am use to and it was wrapped around the bacon, just a bit of heaven! I'm going to order that the next time!
My friend Adnrew ordered just a burger with bacon and cheese. He must have loved it cause it was gone way before the rest of us were done!
Jessica ordered a spiked milkshake! She ordered the salty caramel! It combines bulleit bourbon, butterscotch, vanilla bean ice cream, and Hawaiian red sea salt! It was really good! you couldn't even tell that it was spiked!
I went with the night owl. It blended Godiva dark chocolate liqueur, Kahlua, tia maria, and chocolate ice cream! So good and there is so much extra in the malt cup for another whole shake!
So, if you are looking for a great place for burgers and great drinks, this is the place!
