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.

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.
The burger meat was good, but it was served on a French baguette. This was a little too fancy for me. Sorry, but hamburgers weren't meant to be served on baguettes.
the list. Curiously, given that the fries and patties were obviously
sysco-style frozen bulk jobbies, the vegetables in the salad were quite
fresh and really good, especially for early spring produce. Too bad
they didn't have any proper salad dressing. Since this isn't the 50
salads challenge, they get a 3/10. If you ever find yourself standing
in front of this pub at mealtime, walk 2 minutes north (to the Blacksmith's Arms for Thai) or about 5 minutes
south (to the Orange Bull for a burger which I've already written up
here) for much better food.
in the food, not just in its vicinity at some point during production.
The bun was falling apart, but I blame that on the delivery time and juiciness of the meat. On the plus side, I
didn't have to order it medium rare; it just came that way. The patty
itself had a rich beefy flavor. The meaty beans I ordered as a side were excellent. I think this would have been much
better at the restaurant. I'll be going back at some point to try the
Punisher (burger w/Bacon and pulled pork on top). Highly recommend this place for BBQ if you're in London and need to scratch that specific
itch, but this burger was just barely above average:

mussels. Thick patty, solid bun, easily compressible to fit in your
mouth. The two things Belgians are known for - fries and beer, so the
fries are predictably awesome with ketchup or mayo, or by themselves.
The real star here is the beer, though. All manner of Trappist goodness
and a few I'd never heard of. The Kasteel Rouge is a must-have, and if
you're not driving, get them to mix a bottle of Bush's 12% (yeah, you
heard that right - 12 PERCENT) and Lindemans Peche. Burger by itself is
a solid 7, plus two points for the beer.
The South Texas Burger
Mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and avocado on a wheat bun.
It tasted as delicious as it looked. ZAX is one of my favorite lunch spots. This confirms why. The burger was perfectly cooked and the toppings were all fresh. I only gave it a 9 because it was a little too much mustard for me. The fries at ZAX are awesome, too.
I have a picture of a burger on my phone. I have a receipt for a burger. But, I don't remember this burger AT ALL. Surely I ate it. It looks like it was tasty. But yea...this was in the midst of a bachelorette party brew tour. So...your guess is as good as mine.
The Shroom n' Swiss
Mushroom, Swiss, Ranch, tomato, and lettuce on a wheat bun.
Austin Java is a regular lunch joint for me and my old work husband (we have since gone our separate ways. ::sigh::) I figured it would be good. And it was REALLY good. Granted, I had been dumped earlier that week and was drinking mass amounts of alcohol from Tuesday on. So, maybe we shouldn't trust my taste on this one? But I enjoyed it tremendously.
Guacamole, cheddar cheese & pico de gallo, served on flour tortillas.
This is one of my regulars...both Doc's and the Tort Burger. Greasy and yummy as always. Love that it comes with queso and chips, because Doc's queso is actually really good.
