Too much burger, too little time. Here are some recent burger reviews you may have missed.
- Kendrick Disch on The Vortex: The Vortex in Atlanta, Georgia, serves the Elvis Burger: a half pound patty topped with fried bananas, bacon, and lots of creamy peanut butter.
- San Antonio Burger Blog on Luther's: Their burger unfortunately looks much better than it tastes: "it was one of the blandest burgers I have ever had." But at least the decor is happy and the shakes are good.
- Cook's Tour from the Houston Chronicle on Shake Shack: Houstonites would not be impressed by this New York City favorite. [AHT review]
- Midtown Lunch on Burger Shot Beer: $1 burgers, $2 shots, and $3 beers may sound like a good deal, but since everything comes in small portions, you're likely to spend as much as you would at a pricier place.
- Hartford Advocate on Burger Meister This recently opened burger joint offers six kinds of "proper" burgers aside from ones made with chicken, turkey, tuna, and lobster. [AHT discussion]
- Eating Our Words on Bubba's Texas Burger Shack: Should you visit this burger shack underneath a highway interchange? Hell yes!
- Cafe Society on Park Burger: This newly opened burger joint in Denver looks promising and has great milkshakes.
- Star Tribune on Smashburger: The name of this burger chain comes from the practice of pressing down on the burgers while they're on the grill, resulting in patties that are charred on the outside, juicy on the inside.
- Always Hungry on Charlie's Hamburgers: This burger joint in Folsom, Pennsylvania has been serving burgers since 1935
- Dallas Observer on Burguesa Burger: This place specializes in Mexican burgers, such as one whose toppings include ham, tomato, a tostada, refried beans and a jalapeño. They also serve fortune cookies that taste like "toilet paper and cat butt."
