So, we'll try the easy version. Short and Sweet....
BBP was ok, burger not done to temp i asked
Jake's was good, good value
5 Guys was good, best fries of the day!
winner is Jake's for griddling the bun for that "greasy/crispy" thing that is old school cooking
however, i'm not running to get any of them. guess i will try boom, barnacle bill's and others next go round....
Although I haven't been there in some time, I would submit that a proper burger quest include a stop at White Rose in Highland Park. It's about as old school, griddle burger as it gets.
M - Thanks for the report. You saved me a trip to BBP. I agree with your assessment of Jakes and 5 Guys. The Jakes burger to me was slightly better while the 5 Guys fries were head and shoulders above Jakes. You'll find that Boom's burgers are on a different level. I look forward to read Part 2.
