This is a perfect example of how a burger bun can distract and weaken the overall burger experience. It seems they intended to put their stamp on the burger by getting jiggy and creative with the bun. Stop it! The purpose of the bun is to compliment the burger rather than overwhelm the burger. It's a shame because the burger itself was pretty decent, and they choose to wrap it in thick and stale bread that resembled a week old dish sponge. They did have additional options of bread including the "pretzel bun," but I chose to stay away from the gimmicks. If you have tried this please feel free to leave your comments.
Burger Review : Strong burger + Weak bun = Whatever!
The homemade "ketchup" was an awful lot like dipping a french fry in vomit. It was chunky, watery, and bitterReplyDelete
This reviewers on this site must be vegetarians because this is simply one of the better burgers in LA. If you are looking for a trendy burger like Umami Burger, then this is not the place for you. But if you are a real man who wants a big juicy 10 napkin burger, then this is the place for you. And the reviewers could not be further from correct, the buns are awesome. Personally, I like the Pretzel bun but to each his own. I agree with the above comment about the homemade ketchup. I will stick with old fashioned regular ketchup.ReplyDelete
You are entitled to your opinion. Sadly, this burger actually got much worse. The beef was flavorless on our last visit.ReplyDelete
If you are a "real man", whatever that means, and want a juicy burger, the burger at Wolfgang's Steakhouse is a plain, honest chunk of ground Sirloin. It is FAR better than the mediocre fare at Hole In The Wall, and the price is comparable.
Here is a link to a more recent review of a much worse burger at Hole In The Wall Burger Joint.
In retrospect, Fat Bruce Lee was being generous when he reviewed this place.
