donovan's burger - short note

bigjeff | May 22, 2007 06:58 AM

biked over to have the city's #1 hamburger, according to many many sources, and many posts on CH. My friend and I both had the bacon cheeseburger deluxe and split a huge carafe of wine (dirt cheep) and proceeded to eat the messiest hamburger I've had in a long time. she had the wisdom to knife and fork it, whereas I picked my monstrosity up and never put it down until the last juicy bite, hands a-greasy.

the burger? very good. I ordered medium rare, and it was nicely done, dripping all over the place, with a nice char on the outside. the flavor itself wasn't as beefy or strong as I'd like, the trimmings were nice, and the fries were actually pretty damn good; not steak fries because of their irregular shape, but holding an amazing crunchy exterior, and soft interior.

but would this really be the city's #1 burger? not sure if its beats out burger joint, shake shack or even corner bistro. and besides that, tons of burgers in various bars, pubs and restaurant all over the city. but it was very juicy, loose and quite filling. I'd recommend on the next, a hearty pinch of salt, that might just do the trick. but #1? not so sure.
