There is a lot of thought that goes into making a successful blog/website etc., however; it takes real people and true friends that care about what you do and have the same passion that you do.
I’m lucky as I have reconnected over the last couple of years with a friend of mine from high school named Sean Martin.
He and I try to get together when we can and enjoy a good burger. While we have known each other since 7th grade, we have only recently reconnected and become closer. I’m posting this because the fun and enjoyment that I get from maintaining this site is due to the people I get to hang out with and have a common bond with.
The first and primary burger hunter in my life, is my wife Nicole, as she went on the first journey with me, helped me formulate the name and ultimately loves burgers as much as I do; however throughout the last few years Sean and I have had a similar bond and I just wanted to say, “Thank you!”
Here’s to 2014 and a lot more fun and good food to keep us busy blogging about burgers!
I ran across this review I had done a while back but never posted it cause it just wasn’t all that good. They are closed now and the location is now a Dickey’s BBQ… Maybe there’s a reason. I try not to bash on anyone especially because there are so many degrees of what people think is good or not, but this wasn’t the best of burgers I had ever had that’s for sure.
Really I thought you might find it interesting how it is I capture the notes on our Burger Hunt and then adapt it later to the review, so here’s the notes taken verbatim from my iPhone after we finished eating.
Christie’s Extreme Burgers – Notes
9.99 1/2 burger fries included
5.99 1/3 Jr. Burger with regular fries
Feels like a Carrows or a former cheap steak house like Sizzler… Booths covered in sports team seat coverings.
Coffee smells throughout and it seems like we should be eating breakfast.
Pounded out burger dry and rather tasteless… It’s not disgusting it just taste like something I’d get at a place that’s not known for burgers like IHOP.
Fries were ok but they tasted like last nights shrimp fry and they don’t serve shrimp!
Bun was toasted and crispy edges from the flat top like I like but it was average at best.
Overall the experience was just below average, but the only thing extreme going on about this place was the extreme cold as they either forgot to pay the electric bill or the heater was broken.
It a converted 70’s restaurant that they’ve tried to dummy up with some track lighting and the overall feel is not that memorable.
It smells like last nights regret… Or just finished drinking all night walking into the bathroom that’s next to the bar.
Till next time everyone… keep on the hunt!
