Colleagues hyped up Bleecker burgers as a great joint to have the food of gods so I decided to go try them. I was surprised by their approach in this time of gourmet burgers.
How tasty is the Motherf*#$&r? – 6.5/10
So I was very surprised by the simplicity of the burgers they serve. In the case of simple burgers I expect very high quality ingredients. You want to heavily emphasize the taste of each of the ingredients and make your burger remarkable this way. The burger was OK but I was slightly disappointing.
The size: Small
The burger had:
- Beef Patty
- Blue Cheese
- White Bun
The beef patty was certainly the best part of the burger. It was juicy and tasty sadly when I compare it with the best meats I’ve had on burgers it didn’t stack up. It could of had more flavor from spices but I have to admit the meat quality was good. End of the day that is its centerpiece
The blue cheese was a slight disappointment. You expect to get that moldy taste and mellow it out with the rest of the ingredients however in this case the blue cheese had a very light taste. I guess it kind of worked out with the light taste of the meat but it simply wasn’t my thing.
The crunchiness from the onions and lettuce were welcomed and really helped with the feel of the bites. Can’t say it is the best salad I had in a burger but it kind of worked. My personal preference would of been if the onions were glazed or fried.
The mayo really helped for the juicy bites and I appreciated it but it wasn’t anything special.
Bun wasn’t impressive it was soggy and I believe it should be slightly more toasted.
Burger joint venue and overall experience? – 6/10
The service is quick. The fires are really good and you have a good variety for a place like this. They have nice small selection of drinks I believe fits their menu quite well. Especially the Stone IPA I recommend it. Fries could be ordered as a mix of skin on, sweet and basic and they were really nice but were the more filling part of the burger/fries combo.
Quirkiness level of the experience? – 6//10
Basic quality junk food burger.
