As conducive of an ambiance black iron burger provides for some life changing livestock consumption, I was disappointed in the wasabi burger. The wasabi sauce was overpowering, not with the taste of wasabi, but just very mayonnaisey. The mushroom masked the texture of the burger and overall it was on the salty side. That being said, I finished it because I'm a fan of brioche buns and meat. In terms of Andrew, he was replaced by a stunt double halfway through who was more French and made awkward health conscious decisions for his order... Real Andrew did let me have a bite have of his black iron burger, which was better than mine and earned him a bite sized good rating :)

First off, Andrew is delicious, but not eatable by normal social standards... Aside from that, the combination of flavors were very well done. The sweetness of the brioche bun was offset by the bitterness of the escarole and the creamy saltiness of the Gorgonzola was a perfect match and the black pepper pancetta was a nice snappy element... As far as side choice orders go... Old fashions are not a side... Nor are chicken hearts... But are awesome in real life

The happiest hour is a great burger for that burger fix - but if you're here to rate and judge (which one always is) I'd say that it is an elevated Micky D's with a hip atmosphere. The thin patty and processed cheese allows for a nice texture but it's not worth the price with Fries being a required addition, and the initial bite was salty.... As for Andrew as a person- I think he should have worn a hat so that burger club goers could make more remarks about him.

The shack burger is a very solid harmonious sandwich of beef... But the truth is, this particular burger was over shadowed by Andrew's shack stack that was so massively superior... An explosion of artisanal cheese ("cheez") wiz within a hot chrunch-which was a mushroom- A vegetable that typically over powers most things, but in this case just served as a vessel of hot cheese crunch orgasmic delight... And as Chris Farley once said as a mall chick: "these fries are good" . As for Andrew- I give him a 10 because he let me have 2 bites of his sexy stack shack (phrasing)

It's hard to comment when you have a magnificent hangover saving burger in one hand and this phone in the other. This is a great burger . A hybrid between a backyard burger and an "artisanal" burger, The horseradish provides an unexpectedly delightful combo with the cheddar cheese. The fries were a little cold but I ate them anyway

I knew stepping through the window threshold meant meating my maker-my mother... although she was sporting a smug Clintony Trump grin and squeagy eyes, her slider was a tasty creation. As for Andrew- if he had a high pitched girly voice, I don't think anyone would listen to him.

I love Bacon, and even more when it's hidden inside things like burger meat . If it had BBQ sauce it would be a knock out

Very inventive and super tasty! I loved the texture of the hot beats in the meat. The first batch was over cooked but the second was baller.

This was a very creative burger reminiscent of a Vietnamese grilled pork with rice patty and dippy sauce. The spicy meat was complimented by the sweet pickles veggies. Although this was delicious- it is very particular and not necessarily for those who seek the tradition burger and fries. As for Andrew- I sat next to him and he smelled like failure. But he was nice to me in the end... so I give him a 4.5 😍

As impressive as it is that someone was able to closely replicate the texture of actual beef, I still ask myself.. "why" All this science for a not so good (fake) burger with a funky aftertaste with too much secret sauce . Applying science to seedless watermelon or shrimp that run on treadmills is something I can get behind...you just can't beat the beef! (I like the 'merican flag toothpick... I'm keeping it). I'm convinced the fries were stolen from McDonald's. Andrew hasn't talked to me the whole time, he won't answer my texts, I think there's something going on between him and Haden...) This is harsh, but then again, I didn't have a drink.

This burger is a moment of succulent taste bud pleasure. Hot, juicy, harmoniousness that was worth a snow storm to taste. As for Andrew... I love this burger so much, I give him a "high rating" with a specific number.
