I-Burger Another Interim Report from Philly CH

Bashful3 | Oct 22, 2013 11:20 AM

Do not wish to create controversy, But: given the cool vibe, neat concept of
ordering via table-based internet screen, and the pricing, I expected a lot more.
We chose the least expensive possibility: Angus burger, accompanied by neat sauces, french fries and a salad for $13.99.

Loved the decor. Did not love Hamburger. Hubby hated his, and did not finish it. I didn't love it, but I finished mine. Bun, Fries and salad were fine.
What truly rankled was that I am a beef maven, and that was not my idea of
Angus beef.

Waitress asked if we enjoyed our meal, and we were tactfully truthful. Manager came over, with what appeared to be defensive justification. Claimed that ours was the only complaint he had had, and stated how difficult it is for a restaurant to stay in business, but that their customers were obviously satisfied. Oh well. Can that be? Yes, the food was freshly prepared, and presentation was just fine, but the quality of the meat left a lot
to be desired.

For $13.99 I expected a burger a good cut above Mickey D or its competitors.
What's the word on the CH Board?
