A new hamburger joint opened up in my area (It’s been here about a year, but I just got around to going to it).
It’s called “Smasburger”
I like burgers. I like burgers a lot !!
To me, a good burger is a patty and a bun. That’s really all I need. Maybe a nice shot of horseradish mustard.
Since I was at a “specialty” type burger joint, I decided that to properly evaluate the burger, I should order something other than just a simple burger. I ordered the “Spicy Baja” (Pepper jack cheese, guacamole, lettuce, tomato, onion, spicy chipotle mayo and fresh jalapeños on a spicy chipotle bun)
The fries are “shoestring cut” and they are actually hard to eat because they are small.
The chipotle sauce was quite zingy but over all, there wasn’t a whole lot of taste. I had a much better jalapeno burger at Applebees.
It was a $5.99 burger and the price was right since we had a “buy one, get one” coupon. If I get another coupon, I might go back just to try a plain burger.
My wife and I both concur that if we are in the mood for going out for a burger, the choice still is Portillios.
We’ve been to Red Robin twice. This is the kind of place that I think gives burgers a bad name. Too many choices, too many “things” to pile on . Kind of like have a salad or a side entree stacked on the burger.
