Review: SmashburgerSmashburger is yet another new entry in the fast-growing field of burger chains. It comes out of Denver, we’re told, and is planning to add to the half-dozen stores already open in the Delaware Valley. As chain burgers go, we’d rank it well below Five Guys and Shake Shack, but better than Elevation Burger and Bobby Flay’s Burger Palace. The prices are low, so you get what you pay for.
Review: Dog And BullGo to Croydon, go to Croydon, the followers of the Great Burger Hunt kept telling me. There is a treasure there, they said. Worth the drive. So we did it – 26.2 miles from my home (same as a marathon, coincidentally), one hour and change to Dog and Bull, where the burger was . . . . well worth the drive!
Review: Lucky's Last StandI once asked the head chef of a big-time steakhouse what happens when someone orders their steak well-done. ”I find the worst piece of meat I can and slap it on the grill,” he said. “When you overcook something, you no longer taste the meat anyway.” And that’s what we got at Lucky’s: Not a bad slab of beef, we’re sure, but a burger that was so overcooked, the meat lost its natural flavor.
