Ah Ski Shores, the memories. You've been there since 1954, but new owners have thrown in a full bar, instituted table service and are hiring a different class of staff. I guess everything changes sooner or later.
What hasn't changed is the "quality" of the food.
good and properly cooked, vegetables fresh, guac home-made. Bun was
decent, but not quite up to the challenge of juices toward the end.
too bland, with little crispy bits at the bottom of the pile that reveal their secret (good clean oil at the right temp) by not having a charred taste. My initial thought was that this burger was an 8/10, but after reading what I've written here, I'm obviously more impressed than I realized.
most of the fast food places in the states, which is to say I'm very
surprised it didn't absolutely suck. Toppings were fresh. Chocolate milkshake was pretty terrible, but that's not what I'm reviewing. All things considered, 4/10.
If you need a local burger for the challenge you better hurry up and hit this place up. With its 13 dollar burgers that are worth about 4, this place will be out of business faster than Deweys... even if they actually pay their tax bill.. I think I got boned. 2/10
Hadn't eaten dinner at D&B in 5 years, I didn't remember the food being all that great so I figured I might as well cross a burger off the list, amiright?
it's pretty much just what it sounds like - a philly cheesesteak sandwich on top of a 1/2# burger. That's thinly sliced steak, onions, mushrooms, peppers and american cheese for those of you not in the know.
Got the basic 1/2# cheeseburger. It came with bacon, cheddar and honeysuckle grilling sauce along with "the usual stuff." Beer by Shiner.
Beer: house Izzy's IPA
Burger looked like fuck but was really good. Beer too. Maybe it's because I got up at 4:30a, had a connector flight through Chicago to get to Indy, ran 10 after checking and it's dinner time and this is the first food that's crossed my lips. I'm now on east coast time and will make no qualms about hitting pillows at 8p. The End.
5 / 10
Name: The Elevation Burger
Patty: 2x 1/4 med well
Taste: not my favorite. They may be using a marinade that taste funny to me. Also, cheddar is a tasty cheese, but one should not endeavor to melt it.
