Zakk Wylde Has Hamburger Named in His Honor (VIDEO EXCLUSIVE)
What do you get when you cross a legendary metal shredder with metal's hippest burger joint? The Berzerker Burger!
Last Saturday, April 20, Black Label Society leader Zakk Wylde was on hand at Grill 'Em All in Alhambra, Calif. to unveil the heart-stopping behemoth burger. A select few fans joined Wylde and got to meet the metal legend, take photos, hear a special acoustic set also featuring BLS guitarist Nick Catanese, and choke back a Berzerker.
Grill 'Em All recently opened their restaurant after their now-famous food trucks simply could not handle the demand. As Noisecreep reported before, Grill 'Em All has paid homage to many hard rockers on their menu before by naming extreme burgers for them - there are custom burgers dedicated to Dee Snider, Municipal Waste drummer Dave Witte, Napalm Death and a host of others -- but never before had the artist ever been on hand to dedicate the burger he actually helped create.
And just what is Zakk's bad boy burger made up of? Two fresh blackened half pound patties, Eagle Rock Solidarity battered onion rings, white truffle pomme frites, chipotle ketchup, cheddar, and thick cut bacon - all smothered in chili.
After playing the set, Zakk oversaw an eating contest - the winner (who pounded the burger back in about five minutes) won a signed Wylde-model guitar and fun was had by all.
Noisecreep can report, after indulging in a Berzerker, that it is truly bad ass - flavorful, gut busting - the burger that heavy metal deserves. We encourage everyone to visit Grill 'Em (at 19 E. Main St., Alhambra, CA 91801) to try a Berzerker or any number of the other killer burgers they serve up - trust us - they all go to 11.
