A Burger Masterpiece: Husk- Charleston

Husk Restaurant

While planning our trip to Charleston there was one restaurant that I knew I had to try, especially since it is known for one of my favorite foods (among other things on the menu).

I first came across Husk on one of those top/ best burger lists that seem to frequently pop up. It’s also been featured on a bunch of TV shows.

(Since visiting Charleston, Husk also appeared on a list of The 21 Essential Hamburgers of America.)

The Husk Cheeseburger is only available during lunch (or at the bar during dinner). Luckily reservations can be made through OpenTable which saved me a lot of potential waiting time at the restaurant.

The restaurant is located in downtown Charleston at 76 Queen Street in the beautiful Josephine Pinckney Building.

Kim, Lucas and I showed up early for our reservation and waited for around 15 minutes before being seated inside. 

Once seated, we took a look over the menu, seeing many things that we would’ve liked to have tried. However, there was no debating what to get.

Kim and I both ordered the Husk Cheeseburger which comes with a side of potato wedges. At $11 it’s a relative bargain if you ask me.

When the burger arrived, I couldn’t wait to dig in.

The Husk Cheeseburger is made up of two thin patties. What makes the burger stand out is that Benton’s bacon is ground up into the patties giving the burger a great, smokey taste.

The burger has American cheese on top and between the patties along with pickles (I had them left off of my burger), onions and a special sauce all placed between a tasty, house-made bun which did a great job holding in all of the flavor (and juices).

I did a quick job finishing off this masterpiece and Kim didn’t trail too far behind.

We’d both agree that the Husk Cheeseburger definitely stood out due to it’s unique burger patty blend.

What was also great about the burger was that the bacon didn’t overpower the other flavors. All of the components worked really  well together.

If or shall I say when we return to Charleston, I’ll definitely be placing Husk at the top of my list for restaurants to re-visit. The big question will be- do I get the cheeseburger or try out one of their other tasty-sounding dishes?!
