The heading alone creates a problem so to speak. Unless you have tasted every hamburger in every burger joint in the world, it's tough to make that comment
I think the recollection of eating at any particular place, the mood you were in at the time and the dining experience all add or detract from this
As much as we may not admit getting used to one particular "taste" place plays into it a lot
I don't dispute the fact that this place might quite well have a very good burger but I suppose it's all a matter of ones taste.
Heck, I would love to see a topic discussing the worst burgers L:OL
I would love to stop into this place but I would equally want to knowwhuich places to avoid
I live in Hackensack, N.J. the location of the White Manna. People seem to rave about that place all the time and though I have given it several tries, I say ho hum but that's just mho, my taste
The criteria for me, for a good burger is that it can't be too lean for example you would never make a burger out of filet mignon. It might be tender as hell but tasteless.
I want to see fat dripping off my elbow when I bite into it, I want a juicy burger
My only other preference is to eat it as plain as possible. I have this same feeling when it comes to putting steak sauce on a steak. I want to savor the taste of the meat, not mask it with all sorts of stuff.
I think once you load a burger up with pickles, cheese, onion, relish,mayo, lettuce, tomatoes and whatever, you could just as well be eating styrofoam and not know it
