Burgers - Consistency in Quality

judge dee Jul 2, 2006 01:45 AM

Had a cheeseburger at Pie 'n Burger yesterday. The excessive dressing just drowned the burger; I certainly wasn't able to enjoy the "crunch" of the meat. Similarly at my favorite, the Apple Pan, I cannot get a top quality burger every time.

What's your vote on a reliable top burger place?

      CONNAL'S (for greasy spoon/drive-thru)

      PETE'S CAFE (for casual pub/diner)

      ARNIE MORTON'S STEAKHOUSE (for upscale)

      BENNIGAN'S (for chains)

      By the way, I've never had issues with Pie N Burger...

        Surely, you jest. The dressing at P&B is half the reason for paying their prices.

          I've never had a problem with the amount of dressing at Pie and Burger. Why not ask for the dressing on the side or tell them to put less dressing?

          I think BurgerBoy would be a great person to ask. I wonder if BurgerBoy has registered.
