Jasper's..go quick cause it won't be there long

If our lunch was any indication the prestige of eating at Jaspers in the Domain won't carry the day for long. The bacon cheese burger which will set you back about $12.00 is, to be charitable, horrible. There was and is absolutely nothing about the burger that would make me want to ever order another one. They must use about 75/25 meat to create that juicy taste, what a shame, I'd prefer actual taste. There is absolutely nothing special about the bun, in fact I fairly sure the "Chef" took it out of the Butter Crust bag, and not the new bag, the old one. I opted for chips which were greasy and tasteless, unless you count the grease taste. My sister who is a food snob and generally orders according to what is the most expensive item on the menu had the special at about $15.00 which this day was a Salmon salad. The food snob thought it was pathetic. My nephew ordered the bacon cheese burger without the bun, and of course it came with the bun. His wife appeared none too happy with whatever salad it was she was eating. All in all I'd have to ask why they even bother. I think I can safely say that Jaspers will have to up the ante or go the way of other overblown chains in Austin...I always like to say "You can fool some of the diners some of the time, but not in Austin."
