Burger 90210 (quick review)

Was doing a bit of shopping today and decided to drop in at Burger 90210 for a late lunch.

Going in, I knew that the prices were high(er) than most burger joints, so paying $10 bucks for a burger and another $4 (or thereabouts) for fries was not really an issue.

I don't mind paying premium prices for good food. What I do mind is paying premium prices for bad food, which is what happened to me today.

Burger 90210 basically offers something like 6 (or 8?) different burger choices, ranging from the basic burger to a chili burger to a burger with fried eggs and bacon.

I got the basic burger, or the "90210 Royal". Burger was big, and certainly looked good. But I found the meat to be dry, the sauce tinged with a weird metallic taste and the bun too doughy. Sort of reminded me somthing I would get a Denny's.

As a sidenote, the menu says it is a 1/2 lbs patty. Seemed to me at least that it was probably at least a couple of ounces short of that, however.

Also, there is a Veggie burger option ... is that also 1/2 lbs? The menu seems to suggests that to be the case, but 1/2 lbs of veggies?? That's alot of veggies.

Next time I'm in the 'hood, I think I'd probably be better off at Island's down the street or even at BLD or Mako.
