Taste: 4.4 (Jason:5, Ashley: 3.5, Marissa: 4, Devan: 5, Atley: 4, Eva: 4.5, Joe: 4.5, Danielle: 4.5)
Proximity: 5 minute walk.
Menu: Good. Nine burger choices, which included many unusual flavor combinations, like curry, jerk spices, truffle oil, etc.
Price/Value: $7.50 for a half pound burger, or $5.50 for a quarter pound burger. $8.50 lunch special includes smaller burger, fries, and drink.
Service: Fast for a gourmet burger place, friendly service.
Freshness/Quality of Ingredients: Good.
Taste/Flavor: Overall very positive remarks. The meat was fresh and delicious. The truffle oil burger was “amazing.” The No Woman, No Cry jerk burger was very popular, as was the curry burger. The fries were good but not great – they were a thick style fry that some justices did not favor. The amount of fries was not as generous as some other burger places (a small paper cup, with no fries spilling out of the cup).
Pros: Beer and wine available, open late, plenty of seating available, very cool mayo bar with flavor such as Old Bay, Chipotle, and Wasabi. Variety of interesting flavors of burgers that left everyone wanting to return to try out other options.
Cons: Just far enough away that it is slightly inconvenient. Some burgers were cooked more rare than justices would have liked. There are only two choices for doneness – “rare” or “well-done.” Even the well-done burgers had quite a bit of pink, and the well-done burgers had some red.
