Chili's, Riverdale, NJ


Where: Chili's, Riverdale, NJ
What: Mushroom Swiss Burger
Build: 6oz burger (I'm guessing) Smothered with garlic sauteed mushrooms, melted Swiss cheese, sliced red onion & and mayo.
Comment: Not worth the 1,300 calories! This was a very poor attempt at serving a good burger but it's seems that Chili's has a preoccupation with being trendy which for me, is the beginning of the end. However, my hat's off to Chili's for serving what I would estimate a 70/30 fat content burger, but geeeez for God's sake, season the damn thing! Just a little salt and pepper goes a long way. 
Side Bar: 
Through trial and error, I find salt mixed into the raw meat before cooking, then peppering the meat after cooking (to prevent the pepper from burning) yields the best, most flavorful burger you can produce with simple, basic ingredients. 
Back to the burger:
Check out the photos and you'll see what appears to be a great burger, but it definitely falls short. I ordered the burger medium/rare and it was served a perfect m/r. The toppings were everything the menu promised also, but I walked out of the place thinking I have to write the review quickly because there was nothing about this burger that would stay in my memory very long. Average chain restaurant fare...  7/10 on the BC rating scale.
