B-bops making you pay extra for cheese is so petty.
Umm...pretty much every restaurant has hamburgers at a lower price than cheeseburgers. So pretty much every restaurant makes you "pay extra" for cheese.
1 regular and 1 little. Have to save room because it's seafood grill night for supper (shrimp, scallops and crab cakes).
And if they don't it's most likely because the hamburger has been marked up to create perceived value.
We have 5 Guys and Smashburger down here in Louisiana/Texas, typically, after they've been open for a year or two they end up closing because they can't compete against the better value Whataburgers (i.e. same quality or better burgers/very consistent/less expensive/more locations) and/or they can't touch our high end burger places like Twisted Roots/Grub Burger Bars/Some of the BBQ Places. The remaining 5 Guys and Smashburger stores down here can't be doing too well or are fortunate enough that there location hasn't been invaded by the better value/quality stores.
He must be a White Castle kind of guy.
Also like getting a bacon cheese dog. Those are pretty good as well.
I usually go with a small cajun fries. I think the fries would be better if they cooked them longer.
The Outback Special cost the same $12-16 or so most would spend at 5 guys. 12 oz sirloin (not the greatest steak in the world but I guarantee as good or better than what 5 Guys grinds up), fries cut fresh daily, and a salad with made from scratch dressing, all fresh ingredients. It's also probably nearly twice the mass.
Agree the burger bar concepts are way overpriced. You should see what the burger bar concepts charge in LA. My wife and I can barely get out under $40 if we both order water, skip drinks and split an order of fries. If we both get beers and sides it's like a $65 ding (so obviously we don't do that but would rather go to a "real" restaurant).
Some good points about Outback but I believe the reality for some (many?) is their end result is a much higher at a sit down restaurant given the added wait time/social time very likely means ordering a drink (or two)....and then you always have the tip.
Agreed. Or you go out thinking you're going to order the great value stuff and skip drinks and everyone else you're paying for (family) foils the plan
I do get takeout at lots of sit down restaurants in my overpriced neighborhood for the same out the door price as 5 Guys though even if I throw the guy a couple bucks.
Let's make this thread really interesting....5 Guys or Hickory Park's burgers?
Partially serious -- They have burgers at Hickory Park?
Gimme dat Canadian Bacon and Swiss Cheese on an onion bun, mmmmmmm mmmmmmm *****.
Sounds tasty, but sounds like a sandwich, not a burger.
Yes, they call them, "Hickory".
The burger on the bun helps in making it a burger.
Have you been to Hickory Park?
Thread makes me hungry for Smashburger. Haven't had it in awhile, need me some of that with Smashfries!
5 guys is expensive and over-rated. b-bops is great for the timing and price.
Yes, plenty but is has been awhile (3 yrs?)
I don't know if Smokey D's has burgers either. I suppose they might. Does Famous Dave's?
I tend to order BBQ at BBQ joints, seafood at seafood joints, steak at steakhouses, etc. so that what I focus on with the menu.
I just asked my wife (she lived in Ames for about 7 years before I knew her) if I was crazy for not knowing if Hickory Park had burgers or not. Her response, "sounds like a crime against humanity!"
