I don't think I've ever had a burger leave quite this kind of flavor to linger on my tongue. That sounds gross now that I type it, but it's true.
Normally I'm a strict ketchup and pickles only kinda guy with my burgers, but I embraced the maximilist approach to this burger and was rewarded. Good on it.
I was going to award Andrew a 10, but someone pointed out he was wearing an apple watch so...6.
What I have found today is merely an approximation of the truth that, while admirable in it's striving, is nevertheless nothing more than a filthy lie. A sham, a fake, a phony.
But enough about Andrew. Let me rate this burger:
At first bite, around the edge, I must admit this burger had the right feel. But as I went through it, the "burger" itself faded further and further, overwhelmed by toppings that I think may have been there to mask the fact that it ultimately remains just a veggie burger.
I respect the science and hope they keep at it, but for now I'll stick to the real deal.
This is the best burger I have tasted with Burger Club, placing it high in the running for best burger I've had period.
Perfect salty grade A beef with nothing standing in the way, not even cheese. Even the bun, while structurally sound, melts away with each bite, leaving only the monumental burger.
The only points I'm knocking off are for the fries, which I felt were slightly overdone, and the bus boys who treated the back of my neck like a fucking splash guard for their bread carving station.
Andrew played a near flawless game today. So he gets a 6.
I knocked off a single point for toppings since technically I did not have any. No onion, no bacon, not even any cheese. I did not need any. This burger was a singular experience.
I even have to give Andrew a 10 for this one. I've been coming to Lugers for years and could not bring myself to have anything other than the Porterhouse, but Andrew and Burger Club changed all that. I once was blind, but now I see.
This is one sloppy wet pussy of a burger. Those that know me know I am not one to get my hands dirty during a meal. So that's my main issue with this burger. I was done with the actual burger and still had a large amount of bun, veggies, condiments, etc leftover. Taken as a whole though, it is a crazy flavor packed meal. And the shoestring fries were great.
Oh and "Shout" came on the radio while we were eating. Very fitting that the loudest, sloppiest song of any wedding was playing while this burger did its thing. How's that for harmoniousness?
This was a good burger, plain and simple. Nothing too fancy. The kind you'd find at any good hole in the wall burger shack. I'd certainly have it again, but only on the way to or from Niagara or some such shitty dive bar.
