Stand Burgers?

Anyone been? Worth trying tonight? Crowded? I was totally unimpressed with BLT old town and corner bistro tho.

  1. There was a thread on this yesterday I a search...overall the opinion on Stand was not good...!

    1. went today (sunday) around 4. it wasn't crowed, they sat us immediately. my roommate and i both ordered the classic burger with cheese. we also got the mashed sweet potatoes with parmesan & the onion rings. thought the burger was delicious the meat itself had a really good flavor and the fixings on the burger were a nice compliment. the sweet potatoes and onion rings were both decent, both could have used a little more salt. 4 out of 5 stars. we would definitely go back.

      1. Definitely worth trying. I think the burgers are really good. the meat is great. wasn't to crazy about the turkey burger. Stick w/ the beef or veggie. there's many to choose from. At first service wasn't so great, but they got it together. A little on the pricey side, but worth it

        1. I live close by and was excited to try it. Unfortunately, it was very mediocre. I wish I could tell you more but it was one of those meals where you don’t remember anything except not to go again. I do remember thinking wow they specialize in one thing and it is so mediocre. I got the feeling that some guy decided to ride the burger craze and had it all figured out (decor, publicity, concept, etc) except how to make a good burger.

          I definitely prefer BLT Burger, Shake Shack, and Burger Joint at Parker Meridian to Stand Burger. I am not a big fan or corner bistro, I find their burgers a little too fatty. I was at the Knickerbocker today and had a good meal. After I had ordered I saw someone get the burger which looked pretty good. So I will definitely try the burger at
          Knickerbocker this week.

          1. I thought that everything was good except the beef. We got the classic, which had excellent bread and fixins, and the hamburger with the green peppercorn sauce, and I didn't think that the meat was salty or fatty enough in either.

            My black and white shake was good; the fries were fine; and the pot of pickles was great. Cole slaw could have used a little more seasoning.

            It's worth a try simply because it looks like not everyone agrees that the beef is lacking. You should try one and make your own decision--but yeah, it'll cost you to do so.
