CG Burgers

I’m going to keep this short, sweet, and to the point. I visited CG Burgers because they claim they are “serving the best burgers on the planet.” I tried dining at CG Burgers once before but the place was ridiculously packed! As a matter a fact, it was pure chaos in there! We decided to come in a few days later after the lunch rush and it took us less than five minutes to place our order. One thing I really liked was how clean the place was, even the bathrooms, which is far less then I can say about some other places.

I ordered the Bigger Burger, a 9oz. all natural beef patty, cooked medium. I asked them for “the works” for toppings which include lettuce, tomatoes, onion, pickles, mayo, mustard and ketchup. I also asked them for jalapenos and their chipotle sauce. If it wasn’t for the freshness of the toppings and the spice of the jalapenos the burger would’ve had no taste! After a few bites I proceeded to try my brother’s burger, the Kobe Beef burger. What I found puzzling was that on their menu, under the Kobe Beef burger, it says all natural American Kobe. Wait, the last time I checked, Kobe beef is Japanese right? Never the less, the girl behind the counter assured us it was real Kobe. I have to say if that was Kobe beef then I’m Kobe Bryant! My brother’s girlfriend ordered the Napa Valley burger, which came with goat cheese, arugula and balsamic honey mustard. By far, it was the best tasting item on the table next to the sweet potato fries which were delicious.

One thing I did like about CG Burgers was there full bar and wide section of beers. Unfortunately, I did not take advantage of it but if I do return I’ll defiantly order a few beers. That should help pass the after taste of my tasteless burger!

“Serving the best burgers on the planet,” .... no sir! I mean, if you’re going to make a claim like that you better back it up. The sad thing is that I like this place better than 5 Guys Burger and Fries and even OMG Burgers. So what do you think that says about those other places? I say if your close by, stop in but if you have a better option by all means take it!
