Located in Gig Harbor, Washington, at 4701 Point Fosdick Drive Northwest, the Blazing Onion is basically an upscale sports bar masquerading as a full service restaurant while subtly blending the two in a manner that will satisfy everyone.. The requisite proliferation of flat screens abounds inside the spacious room, but the first thing you see when you walk in is a take-out counter and large menu on the wall above it. If it seems too intimidating, you’re invited to go have a comfortable seat and a crew member will bring you a menu for your consideration.
This will be no easy task as they offer over 25 varieties of gourmet burgers, as well as fish and chips. Their impressive repertoire includes a meatloaf burger, as well as a genuine buffalo burger and one made from wild boar, all of which can be served with an intriguing side of something called Bob Sauce, a delightfully tasting concoction I couldn’t identify but was extremely tasty.
I opted for the buffalo burger, something I hadn’t eaten in ages. Considering the fact that buffalo is leaner and tastier than beef, I can’t imagine why it’s not offered at more places. The price is a little higher ($12.99 at the Onion) but well worth it. It arrived with a generous portion of fries and smothered with ketchup, onions, sauce, and crispy lettuce. I was genuinely satisfied. The attentive crew made sure our drinks didn’t stay empty long. if at all.
