Burgers Restaurant, Mammoth Lakes

 


What was I thinking not coming to this place 5 years ago? I popped in for lunch and had a bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions and a salad with bleu cheese dressing (I had the option of fries as well). The salad was cold and the lettuce mix was fresh, but it certainly wasn't the main attraction.


Maybe there’s simply nostalgia for thousand island dressing or “special sauce”, but burgers seem to taste better with some form of thousand island dressing. The bun is thick, fresh and grilled and maintains its shape with each bite, high marks for the bun. The bacon was still crispy and was meaty and thick. The patty is a quarter pounder, cooked medium. As you know, I prefer medium-rare on all burgers because I don’t like a dry patty. However, Burgers Restaurant seems to have avoided the dry patty trap with the addition of special sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles, grilled onions and whatever their doing to their patties to keep them moist. I still would like medium-rare, but the rest of the burger was so damn good, I’m letting it slide. Look at how photogenic that burger is. It's beautiful. 



Service was efficient and ticket times at lunch were under 10 minutes. I would easily come back for a burger at Burgers. And I'll ask next time if they can cook my patty medium-rare; if so, it should rate as one of the best burgers I've eaten.
