Bamburger BIG disappointment

EvilsPresley | Jun 15, 2009 08:28 AM

I read some posts and heard some word of mouth that this place wasn't to bad. I love burgers and does the GF. So on Thursday her and I meet there for lunch.

The restaurant is new as many may know already. It looks fresh and clean as it should. The service was... well diner service. Our waitress was friendly but, had little knowledge of the establishments food and had been smoking just prior to serving us. We ordered drinks (milk shakes) and read the menu as we waited for them to arrive. Both of us got bored of reading the menu rather quickly, 30+ items apps, mains, sides, and desserts. The use of the words "fresh", "natural", and "homemade" are in most of the item descriptions. Hmmm poor menu writing and design is a bad sign. The best part of the menu is the $1.25 to $1.75 for toppings, you want cheese and pickles that will be $3 extra. We rolled our eyes and laughed how bad could it be.

Our waitress arrived with the two shakes and took our order (The Bamburger and the Pork Burger) both with fries. The milk shakes were chocolate milk with no ice cream. I flagged the server over and asked her if the order was mixed up. The response of "that's our milk shake" didn't make me happy. If the GF was not with me I would have poured the chocolate milk on the dinning room carpet. I sucked it up cause I didn't want to ruin one of our few times we get to spend time together. The burgers arrived very food. We cut our burgers in half and traded halfs. Both burgers were overcooked and tasteless (may have been pre-fab it was hard to tell), the buns bought in not fresh as the menu states, little toppings (lame), and pre-fab fries the kind that are shaped to look like breaded fries. It was eatable but not fresh in anyway. Over all disappointment. In the end it was $25 for bought in diner food.

The food is eatable if you have low standards and the palate of a goat.
