English


While enjoying a few beverages at happy hour, we decided to make it a business “meating” by ordering burgers. Looking back, we should have had a few more drinks because their burger would have been forgettable either way. It wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t noticeably good, even after a few drinks.

“The Burger” sticks to a classic formula of lettuce, tomato, onion, white cheddar cheese, and a pretzel bun. Although sticking to the basics has proven to be a successful formula for many BurgerBible predecessors, the fundamentals were lacking on this package. The patty was a good size (somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 pound of Angus beef) but lacked flavor and would have benefited from more seasoning. A plain flavored patty is a salient shortcoming, especially when the toppings are also unremarkable. The pretzel bun was adequate and wasn’t among the burger’s weaknesses.

English also offer a sexed up “Animal Farm Burger” (adds bacon, egg, “Windsor BBQ aioli” sauce). However, we weren’t tempted to try it given their evident elementary burger construction flaws and our growing bill.
