Comments:

For me, Emeril has always been much more of a showman than a chef. And his burger joint at the Sands Casino in PA pretty much firms up my assumption. In true Emeril fashion, the ambiance of the place was attractive, (albeit cold) but alluring - also in true Emeril fashion. Between the colorful facade, the "Emeril" brand and the fact that my wife and I were ravenous, we fell for the bait, hook, line and sinker.

For those of you who don't enjoy long-ish reviews (Anthony) I'll give you the opportunity for a quick exit: The burger was "meh" at best.


For those of you who don't mind my ramblings, pray continue...

Whether it was a mistake or not, I ordered a "build-your-own" burger. And yes, it was a mistake, I should have ordered the special which was their Steakhouse burger. 

I ended up ordering the burger with white Cheddar instead of American cheese and added raw onion to the list of toppings. The onion-poppy bun was fresh and did a great job of absorbing the burgers juices. The basil-garlic mayo was also tasty, not overdone. The griddled onions however, were mush, way overdone and the burger itself was done medium-well as opposed to our request for medium-rare. Although it did remain juicy, it lacked flavor. 

And the "kicked up" coleslaw was a major disappointment; it was limp, and seemingly well past it's prime.

I expected a much better burger from such a strong brand.

Emeril's burger gets a measly 7.8\10 on the BC rating scale. Dude really? And you put your face as well as your name on this place?







Ego ?



























I should have ordered this one....
