Smashburger

Review: Smashburger

Smashburger 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.

Dog and Bull

Review: Dog And Bull

Go 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: Del Frisco’s

Well, this is why we put 40 burgers into this year’s hunt. Because on burger No. 38 – just when we were having nightmares of ground beef overload, we stopped by this classic Center City steakhouse for a burger and Blue Moon at lunch. And you know what? Del Frisco’s Bar Burger so reinvigorated us that we want to start the whole thing all over again. Well, maybe not.

Luckys Last Stand

Review: Lucky’s Last Stand

I 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.

Sassafras

Review: Sassafras Bar

Lots of burger choices here: Sirloin, lamb, bison, ostrich, veggie. For purposes of this contest, we stuck with sirloin for one and bison for the second. But we’ll be back for the others. Correction: Make that all the others except veggie.

Iron HIll

Review: Iron Hill

We respect the Iron Hill for its craft beers and its respect to ground beef. In fact, during May, the 10 local Iron Hill locations roll out their “31 Burgers in 31 Ddays” campaign, offering a new design every day of the month. Hmmm. I think if I hadn’t just finished 40 in the past 40 days, this might appeal to me a little more.

Grace Tavern

Review: Grace Tavern

This little pub, an apparent hangout of Graduate Hospital workers, is as laid-back a place as we found over our 40-day adventure. So laid back that none of the 20 or so folks there the night we stopped in were even bothering to watch Flyers-Rangers playoffs on the bar TV. But that’s a different story.

Review: Fountain Restaurant (Four Seasons Hotel)

By far the most expensive burger we had during this venture, so we took the head honcho of WIP and made put him this lunch on his expense account. I know we’re paying a bit extra for excellent service (and it was) and a nice view of the fountain at Logan Circle. But 24 bucks?? Sheesh. At that price, the burger should be wrapped in gold leaf and come with its own personal trainer to help me work off the pounds I’ve gained in the past month.

Fountain Porter

Review: Fountain Porter

What a bargain. The five-buck burger at this hipster hangout wins the prize for best value in this contest. It’s juicy, nicely charred on the outside, gristle free and went down beautifully with the “Carton of Milk” nitro stout from the extensive beer menu.
