Comment: I'm a huge fan of 25 Burgers, but today's visit left me very disappointed. Our order consisted of a Chili Burger, a Classic, a Cuban Burger and the Trenton Burger. The Chili Burger and the Classic won best in show. The Chili burger was topped with crispy onion strings, cheddar and of course, chili, my son-in-law gave it a 10/10 and it's definitely on my bucket list - it looked awesome. The Cuban Burger had nothing to do with a burger which both surprised and embarrassed me. My daughter (also a huge 25 Burger fan) ordered the Cuban and was counting the minutes to it's delivery.  I would've never thought that a Cuban burger would not contain a burger... pulled pork, ham, pickle, Swiss, etc, but no burger. Again, I was a bit embarrassed. She said it was excellent, but when you expect Cuban toppings on your "burger", it's still a big let-down. If you are making a "sandwich" call it a "sandwich" why in the world introduce the word "Burger" if there is none. I wanted to give this an EPIC FAIL, but again, my daughter gave it a very high rating despite the false advertising. Yes - it is FALSE, CRAP advertising. 
My Trenton Burger sold me with the "piled high" tag line (which is on the menu). Two paper thin slices of Trenton pork roll? Really? This baby is headed for an EPIC FAIL. Everything else was fresh and hot as usual, but my sandwich was really lacking in the "piled high" topping department. Outings like this will keep me from straying from the Classic burger for quite a while. 25 Burgers in Fairfield is no longer to be trusted. BORING 3.5/10



Chili Burger 10/10




Burgerless Cuban 8/10




Cheapo Trenton Burger 3.5/10
