I had one of these recently, and I actually thought it was better than a Big Mac. But then again, I have good quality BKs here, and the McDs are just mediocre. Mine also did not have a ton of the sauce on it, so you could taste the liquid smoke and the pickles and onions. McDs secret sauce usually bathes the Mac, and is pretty much all you can taste. It was also very fresh, as I had to wait about 5 minutes for it.
I actually had to submit to the orderal of riding public transit and walk a little ways at night in San Diego to get myself to an In-N-Out when I was in town for a convention. Totally worth it. Finished one burger and immediately got back in line for another one.
You're really not missing anything special that you can't get anywhere else. I would compare the burgers to Wendy's at double the price.
Two years in developement? Why? This is something that should shoot out of their corporate kitchen in a week. Its a burger!
Shake Shack's stuff is really overrated. Five Guys brown bag-o-fries bests them hands down. And if that isn't good enough for you, Smashburger's Smash Fries are utterly delectable. FAR better than anything Shake Shack overcharges you for.
You forgot rehydrated white onions like one fast food giant serves. For some reason, they actually taste excellent on burgers.
I love Bison meat, especially for chili, and normally always had a brick in the freezer. It just melts in your mouth. The only problem is it costs so damned much now. I used to be able to get a pound o' buffalo preground and vac-packed for about $6. Last year or so, that stuff went up to $10 or $12 a pound. Might as well just get a really good cut of beef steak for that much.
I would have added a burger that is improperly assembled. From being lopsided or off center on the bun so it falls apart when you eat it and topppings just go all over the place, to the incorrect layering of ingredients such as putting sauces on the bottom bun. Yes it is a wide topic, but a poorly assembled burger is perhaps the most common and can be the cause of the other symptoms on the list.
Well, there's your problem right there! You ordered a burger in a steak and ribs place. Thats like going to a place known more for burgers like Ruby Tubesteaks or Applebees and getting a steak. It certainly would be mostly edible, but it won't be anything near the best steak you have ever had. And from my experience, for some reason, steak places really don't do burgers all that well.
Texas Roadhouse is one of my favorite places to go, in spite of it being really loud in there. The steaks rock for the class of restaurant it is in, rivaling or besting many more expensive steakhouses. The prices are great, the food is fresh, and them yeast rolls rock. Next time, just get a steak and leave the burgers to places like Red Robin (yum).
I LOVE this kind of pizza. I too used to go to Victory Pig when in town, but now there are a few more that make a similar pie like Pizza L'oven and Sizzle Pi over in Kingston (all northwest of Wilkes-Barre). I make a reasonable facsimilie at home with the onions in the sauce and a sweeter dough and a screaming hot oven to get the pan-frying to commence, and the cheese of choice is Muenster. Some use blends, but straight up Muenster seems to work the best in most circumstances. It also works well with Grande pizza cheese, but it isnt as authentic. I'm not a fan of the mostly American pies, as they lack the salt of the cheese.
Good for them. Those crinkle fries sucked and were, by far, the worst of any upscale burger chain. Them bastards so were so hard and so sharp that would actually cut the roof of your mouth and snad the taste buds off of your tongue. Although, they have a long way to go to match the fry perfection of SmashBurger's SmashFrie with the garlic rosemary, and olive oil; Five Guys always rocks it around here with their fresh fries doused in vinegar, and the best burger joint fresh fries I have been able to find are at the regional chain Gino's Burgers and Chicken which you can find around Philly and Baltimore. That place is at the top of my list of burger perfection, hands down.
Had a 1/4lb version today with the handy $1 off coupon from the website. Mine was put together much better than the one the reviewer got. Taste wise? Excellent. Nice snappy onions and good cheese, and that charbroiled beefy goodness. The bacon was very instrumental, providing a perfect amount of saltiness to compete with the produce. Would order again!
Dude, a Fatburger is just up The Strip! What more could you need? However, I enjoyed the burger I had at Burger Bar, but I didn't get this thing and it was a lot less expensive.
Burgers? From a BBQ joint? You wouldn't buy ribs from Pizza Hut, would you?
I have a brand new franchise near me, and the times I have tried it, it has been excellent. I had me one of the deep dish thingies, and for 8 bucks, was very impressed. I had pepperoni. Mine was done properly, in fact, when it comes out of the chain oven the first go 'round, they take the pans and shove them BACK in the oven about halfway through. I am excited to see the canned mushrooms, as they tend to hold their moisture and have a concentrated flavor to them. They are also not nearly as rubbery and tough as the fresh ones some places use. The $5 thing is a hell of a deal, and this is, too. And if it is just you, this will absolutely get you two meals, if not three. It is VERY filling. I put this ahead of my local Papa Johns, and WAY ahead of Pizza Hut.
3. Five Guys
10. Shake Shack
I can just imagine how disusting this thing is. I'd love to see how these things come into the store. I'm guessing the cheese pockets are already there with the frozen dough sculpture, then the just make the rest of the pizza in the usual way after that. That probably has a lot to do with how nasty those cheese pods are, as the ovens are set too fast to totally melt the centers from frozen. Your first mistake was getting Pizza Hut...and I used to LOVE Pizza Hut pan pizza.
Kudos for using a muenster blend! What really do you expect for $5, or in this case, $8? Its pretty good for that price, better than most frozens which will run you that much. And it is better than Pizza Hut, which is at least TWICE the price of LC.
Geez, that doesn't look all that good. I had one the other day, although in 1/4 lb. guise, in the restaurant. That makes a huge difference because they only collar wrap it, not squish it into wax paper and shove it in a bag at the drive through. While the burger I got was not as plumped up like the promo shot, it wasn't all that far off. And the burger itself was great when you consider its from a fast food joint.
For the main cheese, it has to be Muenster. Particular suitable for NEPA pan-fried style pizza with the onions and sweet sauce. It just works so well.
Then again, what pizza can't be improved by a dusting of Locatelli Pecorino Romano.
Maybe it is good if Mr. Flay is cooking it for you, but when I went to a BBP, it was one of the worst burger experiences, nay, dining experiences, I ever had.
I had the Dallas Burger and the regular fries. The burger was dry and rubbery which I though was impossible for medium. Even a squeeze of the patty produced no burger squeezins juice. The bun was dry. The COLESLAW was dry. How the heck can coleslaw be dry? Slaw by its very nature is wet...very wet! All the toppings and sauce were weak and indistinguishable. No real flavor was present.
The fries are an embarrasment. Not burnt, but so cruchy they are almost inedible. That, and they cool off so quickly that by the time you get them, you'd think they have been sitting all day. The fry sauces are disguting well.
I can't think of one redeeming quality of BBP, especially for the price. Just go to Five Guys, Elevation or Red Robin instead.
