Eureka! is a burger restaurant in Huntington Beach. The burgers here aren’t of the same stock as other beer-and-burger-centered places -- say, the Counter. You don’t customize your burger at Eureka! You just order it. There’s a so-called Vodka Burger, topped with a mix of peppers, tomatoes, red onions, prosciutto, garlic and capers flambéed in vodka so they can call it that, even if no vodka flavor is detectable. There’s also the Jalapeño Egg Burger, for which the yolk of a sunny-side-up egg will explode and dribble like yellow lava flow around a patty already gilded with melted Cheddar, bacon and raw jalapeño slices. The buns are also closer to Big Boy’s than anything else. The inside is fluffy rather than substantial, the outside speckled in sesame seeds rather than waxy -- more fast food than gastropub. But with every $10-to-$12 burger you order, you get an avalanche of fries. It’s rare that anyone ever finishes this insurmountable potato mountain, especially if they didn’t know a burger order already included it before foolishly ordering the completely unnecessary truffle fries appetizer, which consists of the same thick, soggier-than-In-N-Out spears covered in a cheesy truffle sauce and garnished with scallions.
