Avocado Turkey Burger from Ruby Tuesday

Avocado Turkey Burger

I recently had the good fortune to join some of my coworkers for a going away lunch at Ruby Tuesday. The only restaurant that screams coworker gathering more than Ruby Tuesday is Chili’s. It’s a great place for giving out awards…
Oh, but I kid, Ruby Tuesday has one of the better salad bars in this category of restaurant and reasonably good, inexpensive entrees, they are a graybeard in this restaurant category at 41 years old. They are also known for having decent hamburgers for a casual dining chain. Around four years ago they had a whopping 21 burger options, some of which were really stretching the concept of a burger (remember the Jumbo Lump Crab Burger? A crab cake in a bun is not a burger…) now it appears to be a more manageable nine options.
One of them is the Avocado Turkey Burger, as seen above. Per their description, it is topped with fresh avocado, Swiss cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, red onions, and pickles. I have tried my hand at making my own turkey burgers a time or two, and they have always turned out merely okay, the problem is that they never seem very juicy. The Avocado Turkey Burger was one of the juiciest turkey burgers I have ever had, and the flavor combo of the ingredients went together really well, avocado, much like bacon improves just about any sandwich/burger it is added to (oddly enough, neither helps a Fluffernutter).
I don’t always eat turkey burgers out, but when I do, I prefer Ruby Tuesdays.
Is there another awesome turkey burger out there that I have overlooked or not tried yet? Let me know and I will give it a try.
