Burger Joint v. Burgermeister

brian j | Jan 30, 2006 07:29 PM

My gf and I tried Burgermeister this weekend for the first time. Ordered a bacon cheeseburger. The burger was a tad overcooked, although I did sorta enjoy the burnt-ish, crustiness of the patty. Tasted like yer average backyard barbecue burger. The bacon definitely saved the burger and made it much tastier than it would have been otherwise. Nevertheless, I'm always happy to try any burger which utilizes Niman Ranch or any other natural beef.

Last week we also went to Burger Joint for the first time. The burger was juicier and cooked better with a bit of redness. Although no bacon was avaialble, it did not necessarily need it. This burger also had a grilled flavor, but less pronounced.

Based upon these 2 burgers, I would have to say that Burger Joint wins this time. I was hoping that Burgermeister would be better since they have bacon, but so be it. Of course, I'm sure this can change depending on who's cooking the burgers. Also they didn't ask how we wanted the burger cooked, and we didn't say, so...
