Is it the weekend, yet?
I wish it was. To pretend it is, I’m posting my first Weekend Restaurant Review now. On Wednesday. Yeah. In the middle of the freakin’ week.
Best Burger is a little joint in North Salt Lake that’s pinned between a Taco Time and a Wendy’s. On my way to a meeting, I was short on time and short on fuel, and fast food was all I could see…until I rounded the building and saw Best Burger. And who wouldn’t want to eat the “best” burger?
Two observations, then:
1. I’m on diet, and that means no more fries, less bacon and onion rings (among other things), and fewer burgers. In general, fewer things that are naturally delicious. So this meal was “just” a burger.
2. I had to wait for a really long time to get a simple burger.
Never fear, though, the wait was mostly worth it. Sporting a sign that proclaims that all burgers are made after the order is taken (in contrast to the pre-made and frozen patty that has made Mickey D’s famous), truly, they can stand by this assertion. I sat in a drive-thru lane for at least seven minutes for my simple “no bacon, no onion rings, no nothing but burger” burger.
The verdict? I’d give it a 6 out of 10, which ain’t too shabby, but definitely isn’t the “best” burger. It’s a patty of one-third a pound of beef, cooked slightly medium, topped with fresh ingredients, and a spongy, tasty bun. I liked it. But it wasn’t that good.
Will I be back? Likely. But not until my diet is over and I can add some of the toppings that I’ve since heard make Best Burger the best burger.
Atmosphere: 7/10 because it’s supposed to be a hole in the wall, so…
