Gourmet? #1 Burger? I think not. Terrible food, service and overall atmosphere. I'd rather go to Whatburger. Stay away!
San Antonio's #1 Burger, I think not, not even close. – Menu looked good and I was very excited as we drove about 25 min to get there. Started out with an ice cold Shiner Bock, all good. Burger sucked! It wasn't fresh or hand made, I'm pretty sure it was a frozen patty. I couldn't believe they were even ranked but to be #1 is ridiculous. I ordered mine cooked medium because I like a good juicy burger, not here, dry and no flavor. The bun or whatever it is served on is chewy and filling and not at all to my liking. The krinkle cut fries were really good but I will never go back. I couldn't believe in how disapointed I was. I signed up for CitySearch just to write this review. Don't be fooled people, if you want a real burger made from real ground beef, go somewhere else. Ugh!
Bad A## Veggie Burger! – I think it rocks that this place serves veggie burgers! and they are pretty darn good too! It always sucks when friends ask me to go eat with them somewhere that my pickings are limited.. but they said this place had veggie burgers so I gave it a shot... AWESOME! oh and my meat eater peeps were really happy too!
Great Burger At A Price – Had lunch there for the first time today but my wife has been bragging about it for the last few weeks. She loves the place. I ordered just a plain cheese burger and the wife had the Mole Burger which was the lunch special. Other than Burger King and Jim's, there are not a lot of charcoal broiled hamburger options. Gourment Burger Grill is the best.
The sourdough buns were a nice touch and I prefer their flat sliced fries over other fries.
The burger was not quite as good as Big's but a great burger. Certainly better than Red Robin or the other million fast food burgers.
The only part I found hard to swallow was the $8 price for the cheese burger. Everything else was great.
Best Burgers in San Antonio – Discovered this place when they opened at the Legacy... great food, great service - but a bit of a drive... new location is in my part of town - it is now our every Sunday lunch place... amazing food, great staff... Mike does a great job in bringing amazing food to your plate... their specials are outstanding... soups are brilliant... it's where I like to eat !
Ever been pregnant and crave food? – I'm not pregnant and I literally crave their burgers!
Yes - they are that good!
Las Mejores Hamburguesas – Te recomiendo estas hamburguesas, son muy ricas y con sabores que no encuentras en ningun lugar de San Antonio. A mi me gusta mucho la hamburguesa con Queso de Cabra. 100% recomendado.
Pricey for what you get – $29.50 for a soda, a burger, a small fry and a fish burger, not matter how "special" is pricey. What made this worse was the food preparation. The fries were great.. yukon gold krinkle cuts.. would eat those again. The bacon cheeseburger was over cooked and lacked flavor. The bacon was undercooked and chewy. The swiss cheese was good. we ordered the burger med rare and it was well done. Middle of the day.. only 3 other sets of customers already eating... so not busy.. food should have been perfect. The Ahi tuna burger was ordered med rare and came out medium well and dry. The flavored sauce (what was that) lacked flavor. I would not eat there again. Too many other places to try to worry about getting mediocre food as a high price.
Gotta TRY it! – I love this place been 5 times! Everytime was same great taste!
The Hamburgler Wouldn't Rob This Place – I really like the idea of upscaling something as common as burgers as a serious foodie myself. Howerver, GBG doesn't execute the idea very well. The beef patties are clearly not made fresh. I'd have settled for the day before, but I'm confident they show up pre-formed and frozen in boxes. I'm not claiming they buy from the same place as a fast food place, but for the price, I wouldn't expect forming patties from fresh beef to be too much trouble. The lamb and ahi options are better, but again seem unlikely to be prepared fresh and on site. The sides are the highlight of the joint. Sweet potato fries among the best of them. It's still worth trying the place at least once or twice, but for the cost I'd much rather go to Red Robin or Culver's.
