O!Burger

The search engine gives me every single "o" from o'clock to words ending in that vowel.

Help, please!

    Try: "O!Burger" (in double quotes). You still get some false positives, but only where "o" immediately precedes "burger".

      I have to say, I didn't think O Burger was that great. Not better than Astro.

        Nice concept, poor execution. Not a good burger.

          I went to O! Burger twice last summer and enjoyed their combo that included one of the two ice teas that they offered and I substituted a green salad for the fries. I found the burger to be a simple, fresh and juicy cooked rare as ordered tasty burger. Best in L.A.? No, but still quite good!

            I tried it last week. If it cost less than a Burger King Whopper, It might have been worth the price, but it doesn't. It was the driest burger I can remember eating. There was nothing I liked about the burger or the place. The dressing was cloyingly sweet, pickles cut too thick, dry crumbly bun. the patty is advertised as cooked med, but it was like cardboard. Also, it is an ugly uncomfortable room, hard plastic seating, stainless tables, garish orange and green colors. It looks like a food stall in a bad amusement park. With tax the burger is about $9, a total rip off.

              Your description is unfortunately exact. It was a bad burger. The baked fries weren't bad and I loved the tea. I'm not going back.

                Thanks, all.

                I've had grass-fed burgers at Nopa in San Francisco and they're spectacularly good, but that is a dinner house, not a burger joint.

                I would have gone just to support the effort, but not after the majority opinion here.

              The first hit on google searching for O!Burger (no quotes) is oburger.net.

              That hamburger would have to be mighty fine to justify the $8 o!price. ($6 for an o!dog.) Me, I'll take one from Tommy's followed by a pesticide-free Oh Henry! candy bar from the nearest open 7-Eleven.

                No one says there isn't a "cost" for going "green". The beef comes from Uruguay.
