So say you are not a sweet eater, how about trying out an unconventional way of eating peanut butter. Imagine ordering a hamburger topped with bacon, mayo, lettuce and a spoonful of creamy peanut butter. Yes, I said it.

The Brick House Grill is not the only place to sink your teeth into another exciting menu item. If you have ever been to Triple XXX Family Restaurant, chances are you’ve seen this infamous burger on the menu. The Duane Purvis Burger consists of fresh ground sirloin which also happens to have peanut butter on it. Greg Ehresman, the burger’s creator shares, “You either love it or you don’t”. However, if you decide to bite into this not so average burger chances are you will not be disappointed. The creator’s key is to add just the right amount of peanut butter to compliment the smoky yet nutty flavor of the burger.
