The Fix

Here we deal with a rare thing in this town: a burger joint that doesn't claim, nor does anyone real claim, is the best burger in town.

After eating it, we know why. It's not a terrible burger at all, but it's pretty unspectacular and seems to be designed, as its title might suggest, for people who are coming down from a pretty tough night of keeping it hardcore. This is Silverlake, so what passes for hardcore might be pretty tame to double-hard bar-stool jockeys like us in Beverly Hills. Too many green teas, perhaps?
Anyway, this burger had too much meat - 8oz (what is it with 8oz in this town? That's half a friggin' pound?!) - making the burger too fat and making it too hard to get a good bite. The Bun was an ok sesame seed variety, but everything else was so dry - lettuce, red onion, tomato, mayonnaise. It's just an unimpressive, flat, salty burger.
the fries were mediocre too!
Plus - we asked for medium and this thing was pretty well done. Not burned, but certainly no color in the middle, which is pretty hard to do with a burger as large as it was!
So here's a burger that's designed for people just needing a fix, and that's fine. We don't need a fix. We need the best burger in town. We are on a quest, not a bender! 
Don't you read my blog, people?! ;)
