Real Food Photos - Never Food Snobbery - My goal is for you to taste exactly what you read about here when you order your food. I make a constant effort to publish non-biased, honest comments. All too often I've read reviews from "burger experts" praising a gourmet burger only to be disappointed come judgment day. For this reason, I do not go into a burger establishment with cameras blaring, announcing who I am... maybe that's the difference, you decide...

No-Bull Burger Purist, born and raised in NJ, the heart of the tri-state area and home to the oldest (and best) burger joints in the country. I don't need all the frilly toppings, happy servers or trendy decor, just a good burger...
A deluxe cheeseburger with two quarter-pound seasoned burger patties (I can't remember all of the seasonings Biggy told me, but there was ginger, some kind of teriyaki?, onion?, etc...)
I am not a fan of a heavily seasoned burger, especially the kind that has the seasoning blended into the meat to the point where my burger is no longer a burger, but a meatloaf patty.
Please do not order for me, if I want to eat meatloaf, I'll order it.
With that said, Biggy had such a light touch when it came to his seasonings, I softened quickly.
The burger comes with the toppings on the side so you can build-to-suit. I prefer iceberg lettuce over the leafy green stuff, so I ended up with just onion on my burger which was fine with me.
I ordered the burger medium rare and it was served per my request. However, due to the burger being piping hot and me spending too much time taking photos, my burger continued to cook itself to a medium well. Bummer, but in fairness, it was my fault, not Biggy’s.
The Burger Bun:
Although it was very fresh, I'm totally over the trendy popularity of the brioche bun. Get me a good old fashioned burger bun (preferably potato). It's a burger for Pete's sake, stop with the wannabe opulence.
All in, a good burger for $8 bucks and served with a side salad, it ain't bad at all.
