“Straight from the horse’s mouth, their website indicates that their ‘The Burger is the one that put us on the map’. Now, that statement is more than a claim, it’s a beacon for burger lovers and
amateur food reviewers like myself! I was more than happy to suggest it to the BF for his Father’s casual and family birthday dinner. Upon arrival, we swifly found ourselves seats without any wait and made our way to the counter to order. The teenage girl that took our order had envious amounts of energy. She was even patient with us while my bf took forever to figure out if he wanted to be more daring with his meaty choice. But somehow, she still forgot about his father’s order as it never made it out to the table but we’ll let this one side in exchange for the free cookie that we received.
Plus, that was the least of my concern because their ‘The Burger” didn’t do a damn thing for me. I thought this particular burger was overcooked — even slightly burnt, tasteless and nothing special! It was too bad that The Burger, which I am assuming is suppose to show off the clean taste of beef was a disappointment. And all I have to say is that good thing my boyfriend ordered The Cubano, a burger that is topped off with slow roasted pork and slices of ham. It was super tasty and salty, which is why I picked off his food and his Step-Mother’s Asparagus fries, called The Green Standard, all night long! Lastly, I also think it’s great that their burger won’t cost a down payment to enjoy.
