It’s been an excellent adventure for Lindon “Lindy” Reilly.
From Lindy’s on 4th to his newest concept Thunder Bacon Burger, it’s been fun watching Lindy stack his patties high and mighty. In January, Thunder Bacon Burger left Fourth Avenue and moved in with Donut Bar at 33 N. Sixth Ave.
Donut Bar is now being rebranded as Thunder Bacon Donuts — this is where Caleb Orellana, the owner, baker, and mastermind behind Cal’s Bakeshop, steps in with his pastries. It’s a burger and doughnut match made in culinary heaven.
Beginning Tuesday, November 7, a new group of burger and doughnut combinations will be on deck.
“They’re still keeping the concept of the doughnuts and burgers because people love having doughnuts here, and they brought me in to take over that,” said Orellana. “I’m recreating the dough and all of the donuts — no filling. They’re going to make their own fillings.”
“I’m most excited about doing some really cool doughnuts and working with Cal,” said Lindy. “I’ve been kind of doing stuff behind the scenes for a long time and creating a couple of additions to the menu. We’re making so much in-house like our sauces. I’m excited to push forward burgers that I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. It’s gonna be great.”
It’s a wonderful time to be alive when you can have burgers for breakfast. Burgers with an egg oozing all over. Burgers that have been sandwiched between a concha. Forget Folgers — this is the best part of waking up.
“We’re downtown. We’re here,” said Lindy. “Grab some doughnuts! We’ll have lunch specials showing up soon, so you know it’s going to be a good time. Just looking forward to having fun.”
