Mushroom Swiss Burger @ Jaggers.

The Indy Burger Guy visited Jaggers in Greenwood on Sunday, June 10, 2018.  To read about his previous visits to Jaggers, check out his reviews of the Cheeseburger and the Green Chile Cheeseburger.

What to do on a lazy, rainy Sunday afternoon?  If you’re me, that’s as a good a reason as any for a burger for lunch, so my Mrs. suggested a trip through the drive-thru at Jaggers which, since we’ve moved to the south side of town, has become something of a haunt for us.

I’ve written about Jaggers once or twice before, but have been back several times while the blog was on hiatus.  I’m finding it to be a consistently good spot to grab a quality burger quickly.  So, this time, while my wife opted to try one of the chicken sandwiches, I stayed on-brand and opted to try the Mushroom Swiss Burger, one of the few burgers on Jaggers’ menu that I haven’t yet tried.

The Mushroom Swiss Burger is so utterly simple on the face of it – two grilled beef patties topped with melted Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms with a garlic mayonnaise.  It’s very much in keeping with the other burgers I’ve had at Jaggers – tasty, well-seasoned, and well-made.  It’s has all the makings of a classic mushroom swiss burger, though I didn’t pick up on the garlic mayo element on my burger.

However, most Jaggers burgers I’ve ordered have come with some veggies – shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and diced onions – but there aren’t any on the Mushroom Swiss Burger.  This would have gone a long way to adding some needed texture to the burger.  While the flavors were good altogether, cooked mushrooms tend to be mushy which can make for a potentially unpleasant dining experience.  Some freshness and crunch – from either veggies or bacon – could go a long way to improving this particular burger.

With regard to sides, I always go with the seasoned tater tots which are top notch!  My wife usually goes with the shoestring potato fries. This time, I noticed a lot of other great side options like cole slaw, mac and cheese, and edamame.  I think I’ll give one of those a try the next time I stop in.

That said, it’s a good burger.  Jaggers is a great fast-casual concept that I’d like to see expand across the state and into other markets.  If they can keep the quality and service levels consistent, they could be a regional chain easily.  And that would definitely be a great thing!
