Murdoch’s Turns Up the Heat with its Latest Burger
At Murdoch’s Backyard Pub, the owners enjoy creating cuisine inspired by people and places they know, says Sarah Franke, chef and part owner.
The popular Cypress eatery at 18541 Mueschke Road is well-known for its craft beers and creative burger mashups. This month’s burger specialty, The Dizzle, honors Murdoch’s bartender J.D. Houlihan whose appreciation for spicy foods is not for the faint-hearted. He enjoys lacing his burger with the restaurant’s outrageously hot Agent Orange Habanero Sauce.
“If I’m not sweating and tearing up, it’s not hot enough,” J.D. says.
