Andrew's desperation for approval benefitted him only because it made him order all the sides. ALL THE (Fancy as Fuck) SIDES! #blessed Yet still 3.1

Andrew, as a person, again, another race to the bottom as far as humans go. I like our server who was easy going and seemed cool with a table of a million people. And her curls had a prefect amount of bounce. The shoestring fries were a treat but I am morally opposed to not having sides included in the overall price of burger. What is this? Per Se? The hamburger left a lot to be desired. I had recently planned a run to end at Five Guys and found that burger much more satisfying.

Is it too late to make a hat that says Make Andrew Great Again. His brief reign at the top was sadly just that. Brief. A fluke. I watched him drink from Adam's cup (not a euphemism) and struggle to sign us all on the wifi. The days of analog Burger Club are behind us, Andrew. Score: 2 Other than that, the burger was a delight. Seemingly simple but with complex flavors and the arugula was a nice touch. I'm here for the fries, obviously. It is the only thing that keeps this old body going. Ambiance: I took no offense to the Rosie Riveter sign in the corner that encouraged us to buy local wine and fight the recession. But wondering if I'm just a bad feminist. 🙃

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.

This was a weird Burger experience. Each bite was more interesting (and worse) than the last. After this burger, I need a palette cleanser and a hug. Vegan mayo should be banned. The fries, with their McDonalds-esque flavor, were the best part, as was the American flag toothpick. Even worst than the burger's performance was Andrew's. Wooooh boy. This guy! Emailing us at 8 am to get to the restaurant early but he himself showed up late. He also tried to bribe us for a better rating. This is Trump's America, I suppose. We can't trust our leaders. Rating for Andrew 1.8 (points for the cardigan, a saving grace.)

For Andrew: 5. This was Andrew's best day. I don't know if I'm euphoric about the burger but Andrew looked sharp, was on time, and was pleasant company. Maybe because he was hungover? Anything is possible in this new world, I guess. The burger was incredible. The fries were incomparable. I even liked the pickle. It's expensive, of course, but it's worth it. I can't believe I've had this burger twice in my life and some people never have. It's an american tragedy.
