Super Taste, Super Service!. Great tasting burgers, friendly fast service!
Burger ... and Soup ... Heaven!. Everyone loves a great burger, and this place has something to please every palate. My husband, a major-league carnivore, adores the lamb burger with feta and the certified angus beef dressed almost any way. I'm all about the veggie and seafood options, such as the ahi tuna and portobello burgers. Sides are great, especially the sweet potato and crinkle-cut yukons, but if you want a real 'gourmet' treat try the chef's daily soup specials. The Cream of Mushroom is outstanding, as are the Shrimp Bisque and the New England Clam Chowder. Each is made from scratch, and the taste is evidence of Mike Davis's culinary talent. You'll also find excellent service at GBG and prices that are on target for the quality of food. It's no wonder GBG has been touted by the SA Express-News, SA Magazine, etc. for great food: They deserve it!
Sourdough Hamburger...Yeehaw!!. The use of sourdough bread on a hamburger is an excellent way to make what might be an ordinary burger, well, exceptional! The owner took our order and in a few minutes we were enjoying what I think is the best hamburger I've ever had. The french fries and soup were better than expected as well. I will definitely be back!
Looking for an outstanding Burger, they have it!!!!. We read about GBG in the SA Times and decided to try it out. The inside is warm and even though the chairs looked uncomfortable, they were not at all. The person at the counter asked us if this were the first time we had been there, and guided us through the menu and explained all their different combinations. We ordered one regular cheeseburger and one with Boursin cheese sauce and bean sprouts and both cooked medium. Once our numbers were called, we picked up our order and made our way to the table. WOW, first off, let?s start off with the buns, out standing!!! They should never change that recipe. The hamburgers were delicious and weren?t the normal broken up meat patties you get almost everywhere else. The Boursin cheese sauce was outstanding. And the food was HOT. The counter person stopped by and asked we if wanted refills on our drinks and wanted our opinion of the food. I have to tell you, I was so surprised at the customer service I received in this place. We also asked if they baked the buns themselves, which they replied no, but did tell us where they were made. We will be sure to try that restaurant next. There are only 2 additional comments I will make in general, We have lived in several big cities coast to coast and San Antonio restaurants? generally don?t offer good customer service even if you are left paying for it and the quality of food is generally fair. So, when we find an outstanding place, we need to pass the word. Thank you for the wonderful dining experience, we'll be back!.
We went on a friday night. The resturant is kinda cool. You go up and place your order then your number is called. The burger I had was super dry! It even had this cheese sauce type thing with bean sprouts..I know... a little strange. But the cheese thing was good but the meat was overcooked or had been sitting out for a while. Its also pretty pricey.
If you want a hamburger..go to Longhorn Cafe. It is the one that I measure all the others against. Its pretty though to beat. Chester's and Red Robin (yes a chain) is very close.
San Antonio's BEST hamburger. My sister and I ventured to Gourmet Burger Grill (she's a burger connaisseur). She ordered the plain, and while I was going to order a salad, I figured "when in Rome". I ordered just a basic burger too, but it was far from ordinary. It was one of the best burgers and best bites I've had in a long time! If you have not tried these burgers, you have to go! Next time, I'm trying one of their specialty burgers.
Editorial Review. Burger restaurant serves up high quality beef with a bevy of toppings available.
