Back in March of '13 The Lodge Sasquatch opened here in lil ole Sierra Vista. I've been there a couple times since, as well as visiting The Lodge Sasquatch in Tucson at Foothills Mall. I've been slow to review... mostly because I'm lazy, but also because of the lil one that came into our lives in April.
So far I've been 4 times in the last few months, and I've had the Juicy Lucy which what cheesy fantasticness. Mushroom Swiss burger, like all the other burgers on the menu was juicy and blasted with awesome flavor. Not over powered by some seasoning that a chain restaurant forces upon it's franchisees, you can actually taste the meat, the whole reason for eating a burger right. I got the Fish Wich, which (that's a lotta witches... ya see what I did there) utilizes the Ono Fish a native hawaiian fish, lettuce and a tartar sauce, but most def not some off the shelf (or not any shelves that i've found) tartar sauce, this stuff made the sandwich...along with the fish and lettuce, oh the bread, that's what made it a sandwich. This is the one that i'd been recommended by the sister to get on, and only took me three trips to finally give in.... All of these burgers and fish sandwich i got the sweet tater fries...top notch sweet and salty. no need for dessert even!
WAIT... i've been there 5 times, how could i forget the Buffalo meatloaf that was a fantastic surprise, it came with two sides a veggie of the day(which i cant recall) and mac n cheese, which im finding in my old age that i like more and more, but am getting pickier about it, but the baked cheesy goodness with the crusty bits on top, def met muster, plus some!!
What really got me fired up to blog about it tonight, was the LSK Turkey Melt, which is Turkey pastrami, grilled onions, roasted poblano peppers (which i feel is a greatly under utilized chile) Pepperjack cheese on texas toast. This sandwich was THE BEST thing i've had so far at the Lodge. Bar none everything melded together to make this one of the best turkey sandwiches i've EVER had. I usually HATE turkey sandwiches unless they are from a fresh carved bird, but with the roasted peppers and onions it (finally) gave a turkey sandwich some life. The cheese and Turkey pastrami blended together nicely and who doesnt love a sandwich on texas toast? (twiggy wenches that's who) Nice thing (for me) on this particular sandwich is the sandwich was nice and juicy, which led to a slightly wet sandwich which i love!! (think pleasant wed like a wet italian beef sandwich not a soggy cooler sandwich when you're on a bad picnic)
One day i will try to conquer the Sasquatch Burger which is two half-pound burgers between two TEXAS TOAST grilled cheese sandwiches, with all the toppings. Yeah that's a knife holding that sammich together!! Im gonna whoop it!!!

The setting inside and outside for that matter is that of an old log cabin, wood everywhere and i love it, it's also got a nice tech vibe to it with large TVs place accordingly around the restuarant, allowing viewing of whatever sport may be on at that particular time and station. They've also got wonderful taxidermic animals on the wall which lends itself to that ol' cabin in the woods. On either side of the main room they've got a game room, with a pool table on one side and a few arcade games, and darts on the other.
It's really a fantastic place to go chill out with some great food, drinks and comfortable wait staff. I highly recommend you seek out either of the Lodge Sasquatchs in southern AZ, i think you'll be pleased with everything they offer.
