Now Magazine review of Hal Burger.
The reviews are mixed at best. I have to agree. Big light green hat, little to no tasty cattle.
- My burger was half-charred-black on the outside and medium-well to well-done on the inside. A rather dry, tasteless 8 ounces of burger. The bun was tasteless too.
- The fries are good, but are too thin. I like chunkier fries. If you have trouble picking them up with a fork, they're too thin.
- The sweet potato fries, looked like sweet potato tempura cut julienne style, were even thinner.
- The shake was good, but the 7-11 Slurpee-type scoop straw doesn't work well at the bottom of the shake when you want maximum suction power.
I still prefer Groucho's Gourmet Burgers or Johnny's Hamburgers - too bad they're not downtown.
