Comments:

I was told 381 has a decent burger, so it went on my bucket list a year or so ago and I finally made it out to taste one for myself.

It was, in a word, "average.” Yes, dead-average in every way I could possibly explain, but don't care to. The bun, the meat, the lettuce, the tomato, the onion – all of it was as mundane as it gets. Don't get me wrong, everything was fresh and tasty with a great meat flavor in the burger, but I'm just tired of the same old boring pub style burger.
The interior decor and the al fresco dining are both pretty cool and I'm sure it'd be great to hang out there on a nice summer night.

To alleviate my disappointment in the burger, I promptly focused on the two pizzas we ordered. First, the 381 Main Original Brick oven pizza, the second, an artisan pizza with a blend of decadent ingredients which I rated as best-in-show (BIS) for this particular evening.

This happens all the time; I'm told how good a burger is at some restaurant and then I find out how really good the pizza is, and vice versa.
Even though it's a cookie-cutter pub style burger, the 381 main burger receives an 8.5\10 on the BC rating scale.
