This week, we're opening up the floor to a discussion about celebrity-owned burger restaurants, like Wahlburgers, Marc Burger, Bobby's Burger Palace, Burger Bar, and Flip Burger (among others). Have you visited a celebrity-owned burger restaurant? Would you go back, or was the experience a let-down? Do you think they're over- or under-rated? Chime in with your thoughts in the comments.
Results of last week's poll
According to last week's poll, just over half of respondents (55 percent) said they don't bother sending their burger back if it's not cooked to their requested doneness, while 45 percent of respondents do. The results are similar to the last time we asked this question, back in 2010. There was a lot of discussion on the subject of burger send-backage in the comments. Here's what a few of you had to say:
If it's an expensive burger, I'll send it back. If it's only slightly under or overdone at a less expensive place, I will suck it up. I couldn't participate in the poll because there was no place to vote 'depends on how much I paid for it.'
Before ordering, the question "will the kitchen prepare a medium-rare burger?" is always asked. I won't order a burger if the restaurant doesn't take cook-to-preference orders. If it comes out cooked incorrectly, it goes back.
Unless it's a really nice restaurant I typically will only send it back if it's truly undercooked. I like mine medium rare/medium so if it's anywhere up to medium well I'll usually not complain. I find most of the taste in a good burger comes from the meat quality... I had an (American) Kobe burger that was cooked well done but still super tasty.
Note: the poll remains open, so these numbers may shift slightly in the future.
