Couple of friends and I went up to Prescott and Jerome over the weekend. We had lunch at Pearl’s Place, which is located on Whiskey Row in Prescott. I had a pulled pork sandwich. The pork was tender and juicy. The barbeque sauce was served on the side. I poured most of it onto my sandwich, as the pork was a bit bland on its own. The BBQ sauce had a nice kick to it and it wasn’t too sweet. The sandwich was served with potato chips, although the other side options were potato salad, coleslaw or fruit. My dining companions had the Ruben and the other had a burger. The burger was pretty middle of the road. However, my friend said the Ruben was outstanding. The corned beef appeared to actually be made on site, rather than deli sliced. She ordered the potato salad as her side and said it was excellent…garlic-y even. She was quite happy with her selection.
The service at Pearl’s was a bit lacking. The staff seemed to be having a meeting…or they were just involved in a lengthy conversation. It was clear that they were complaining about something. The service wasn’t terrible, just not good.
We ate at Mile High Grill in Jerome the next day. We all ordered burgers after seeing other patrons devouring theirs. I had the Blue Cheese Burger. It features crumbled bacon, blue cheese, grilled onions, and sautéed mushrooms. Lettuce, tomato and onion are on the plate to be added at the diner’s will. And it all is served with a pickle spear and fries. The burgers are cooked to order…believe it or not! My burger was juicy and flavorful…not at all a bland burger. The toppings were really great. The pickle had a distinct juniper berry flavor to it. The fries were the thinner cut size and were just fantastic. We all thoroughly enjoyed our burgers!
We have been to the Haunted Hamburger before. While I thought it was good, I would say that Mile High exceeded our expectations and really delivered a better tasting burger. The service at Mile High was good…really no complaints in that area.
