The Burger Joint Review


Walking into BGR (The Burger Joint), the first thing I noticed was the smell. As soon as I crossed the threshold, my nose was immediately greeted with the delicious scent of patties sizzling on the grill. The next thing that hit me was the music. BGR plays a variety of hits from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, which bring feelings of nostalgia to older patrons and give the restaurant a very cool retro vibe.

As I walked up to the counter to place my order, I got a chance to take a look around the place. The tables were decorated with mosaic art of pop culture icons such as Superman and the Simpsons, and vinyl album covers of famous artists like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty hang from the wall. When I got to the counter, I ordered a burger, cooked medium rare, with grilled onions and pickles.

My meal cost about 10 dollars with a drink, a little on the expensive side in my opinion, but BGR does have a reputation as the being home to the best burger in town. Even though it was a Tuesday night, the restaurant was still relatively busy, which I took as a testament to their quality of meal. After a relatively short wait, my food was ready, and I sat down and dug in. The burger was excellent, cooked to perfection, dripping with succulent juices and bursting with flavor. The patty was much larger than one you’d get from a place like Burger King or Five Guys, and when I finished the burger I was completely full.

The final verdict: BGR is a great place to go in Old Town if you want to get a quick and delicious meal in a cool environment, although the price can be a little steep for just a burger. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes burgers and has a bit of spending money.
