Killer B Norwalk

Please note: If you are currently on any sort of diet, do yourself a favor and skip this post. I know, I know. I’m supposed to WANT the views. But listen, I’m looking out for you. There’s only very tempting, calorically-dense food porn ahead. Also, I wouldn’t read on an empty stomach, because you may start licking the screen. #seriously

You’ve been warned 🙂

Sometimes, a food experience so big comes across your plate and your can’t get it off your mind. And that’s exactly what Norwalk’s Killer B is all about. The eatery boasts some seriously flavorful burgers, bacon, bourbon, and beer, creating an over-the-top experience your friends ask you about over and over again since you posted your dinner on Instagram. (FYI Greg, we’re coming for you…)

Forget the white tablecloth experience most of the eateries in our area offer, and dive into these dangerously delicious photos. (And once you’re done perusing, scroll to the bottom to get the deets on how you can book your much needed visit to Killer B.)

Greg Pettinella, founder, kicks off the pub experience with killer cocktails. And this one—the Smoking’ B—creates a table side experience that’ll leave you smoking… literally. The cocktail starts with Jim Beam Black Bourbon and Bittermilk smoked honey sour aromatic bitters, topped off with a rather large sphere of ice and a toasted orange slice, is brought to you with a smoke box.

The cocktail is popped inside, and the magic starts to happen, with smoke filling the box and infusing some smoky flavor into the drink.

An amazing cocktail is the result, and your outside-the-box experience at Killer B has begun.

The next B in line? Bacon, and presentation doesn’t fall short here either. Off of an industrial-looking clothesline hangs strips of thick cut bacon. And, of course, the bacon comes in different flavors—bourbon (duh!), butterscotch, fire, honey, and orange.

If the bacon adorned with clothespins wasn’t fun enough the Volcano Potatoes will seal the deal. One of my favorite dishes, the baked potato is stuffed with onion, melted cheese, Sriracha (spicy), and honey (sweet), before the entire dish is wrapped in bacon for the salty kick. Does it get any better? (Spoiler alert… Keep reading!)

Here’s a question: if you had to give bacon or cheese up for the rest of your life, which would you chose? Thank your lucky stars that’s not a real world scenario with the Bacon Wrapped Fried Mozzarella served with a bacon bourbon sauce.

Okay, here’s another IntoxiKate favorite inventive (and tasty!) switch up. The Beer Cheese and Bacon “Nachos” aren’t your average app. Beer cheese, salsa fresca, bacon and sour cream smother house made potato chips, which were a really nice substitute for the standard corn chip.

Okay, I know I enticed you with those up front, and I feel like I’ve led you on long enough. The dish that’s gone viral—and rightfully so—is the Lazy Man Lobster Mac. Big enough to serve two or three, this dish sits upon a butcher block and features three pounds of lobster and the restaurant’s signature mac’n’cheese with lobster stuffed into the tail of the crustacean.  Mouths drop as it makes its way from the kitchen to your table, and this baby doesn’t last long.

Okay, on to the next B: Burgers! If you have a few health nuts at the table, or just want to add a little green to the bacon diet, try the Cheeseburger Salad with mixed greens, tomato, pickles, onions, and this really banging creamy bourbon bacon dressing. Oh, and let’s not forget the juicy burger, cooked to perfect, and smothered in American cheese.

If you want to know if your date is as into food as you are, take him/her to Killer B for this challenge. The Killer Queen B is a double decker pork patty and beef patty, candied bacon, provolone, LTOP, and bourbon bacon mayo, all housed between two bacon grilled cheese sandwiches. Feeds four (at least!) and take it from IntoxiKate—it’s easier if you take it apart!

I will confess—at this point of the tasting, I felt like I needed to be rolled out of here. That’s A LOT of food. But it was worth every calorie consumed, and because everything tasted so good (and I’m committed to tasting everything FOR YOU!), I kept on keeping on. And that’s when this gem of a burger hit the table.

The Country Style Burger is served open-faced, so you can see everything you’re about to dig into. Lettuce, tomato, black bean corn salsa, onion rings, and that signature juicy piece of meat sit atop sweet cornbread.

Monster-sized shakes with all sorts of candy-goodness grace the tables. And if you can fit it, I say there’s no going back now.

If you need me, I’ll be at the gym… For days. (But I’d go back in a heartbeat and do it all again!)
