This was surprisingly disappointing. Forn$26 and the hype of a lifetime I expected more, but the burger was cold, the sauce overwhelmed everything, and the result just fell far short of expectations. The meat was largely masked by the pile of toppings and sauce, and the messiness - while charming - didn't add to the experience. On the plus side, the fries were magnificent, the presentation on a pizza tray was lovely, the service was attentive and the pretzel bun was a nice touch. If it were cheaper I'd recommend wholeheartedly, but at Minetta level price, I expect minetta level taste.

A well textured burger lacking in flavor (or was it just obscured?) and doused in far too much special sauce. Mine was served lukewarm, which was disappointing next to the piping hot fries. The fries were spectacular. The gerkins were a nice touch. The surroundings appealing.

The burger seemed like it would be good, but the sauce way overpowered the beef so I couldn't really even taste the agedness. Too many toppings or too much of the toppings was the main issue, and we learned that the burger used to be $19. For $26, I expect more. Pretty disappointed in this.

I missed Andrew so he gets a 5 today. He said nice things about my butt in Italian.

The most disappointing part of this experience was the value versus the actual burger. We waited a half hour for a mediocre burger but with the best fries. Those did not disappoint even though my delicate lady palette was very overwhelmed at times. The pretzel bun felt like too much. Just use a nice brioche! The pile of shoestring piles made my heart melt and I will remember those on bad days when I think there is nothing good left in the woeld. I was over enjoyed to see them on my tray.

Andrew's rating: 2.3. Better than usual but he did return a beer because it was a pumpkin beer. Has he no respect for the fall season.
