March 20th, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA: Guitar Icon Zakk Wylde has teamed up with Grill ‘Em All to create theBERZERKER BURGER; a monstrous burger with two blackened half pound patties, Eagle Rock Solidarity battered onion rings, white truffle pomme frites, chipotle ketchup, cheddar, and thick cut bacon all smothered in chili. Grill ‘Em All has honored many hard rock and metal legends on their menu – such as Dee Snider, Behemoth, and Napalm Death – but this is the first collaboration of its kind. Fans and burger enthusiasts alike will be able to get their hands on the BERZERKER starting at 12:00pm on Saturday, April 20th at Grill ‘Em All’s restaurant located at 19 E Main St, Alhambra, CA 91801.
“Doing a Zakk Wylde burger is a dream come true for us because the guy is everything we dig about Metal,” saidMatt Chernus, co-owner of Grill ‘Em All. “We though, ‘What would Zakk Wylde like? Um, yeah, beer and spice!’ TWO blackened patties with boozy onion rings, truffle fries, and chipotle ketchup; we know this burg is going to make people meat drunk.”
In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station to become his new guitarist, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a guitar icon known and revered the world over. Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now legendary Black Label Society in 1998. In the decade since, BLS has turned the notion of what a rock band should be upside down by inspiring legions of fans (known as Berzerkers) all over the world to follow the mantra: Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever–SDMF for short. The Berzerkers, with Wylde as their leader, have created a heavy metal institution true to his vision of uncompromising, unfiltered, and unrestrained rock and roll. Wylde has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, and is a major influence on a new battalion of rock guitarists currently popular today.
Grill ‘Em All has been conquering the roads of Los Angeles with their gastronomic powerhouse food truck for three years, blazing a trail for gourmet burgers and pushing the limits of food truck tom foolery. After standing triumphant at the end of the Great Food Truck Race finish line (Food Network) and being crowned the Best Thing I Ever Ate (Cooking Channel), the demand for their beef grew to the immeasurable heights only comparable to Iron Maiden ticket sales in 1987. A move had to be made, an attack deployed. Grill ‘Em All executed said attack, and the doors of Grill ‘Em All Alhambra – AKA Valhalla – officially opened on Saturday, January 19th, 2013.
