This week, we took the Burger Quest to the ‘burbs – Mr. Bento!

Meat 5 / 10
Not too dry, juicy or drippy. The meat was decently flavored, maybe even a little on a plain side. Because ingredients aren’t listed on the menu and as having grass-fed and local meat is a really important factor for me, I unfortunately had to take off a point for this! Nice sized burger – not too thick and not too thin! If I had it my way, I’d have the burger a little bit more on the medium-well done, this one seemed a little on the well-done side.

Bun – 5 / 10
I liked the size of the bun – medium sized and perfectly toasted. The bun was a sweet roll and I’m not a fan of sweet rolls on burgers but that’s just a personal preference.

Burger : bun ration – 9 / 10
Great ratio. Many times the bun hangs waaaayyy over the meat and, well, that’s no bueno. The idea burger one one that when you take the first bite, you get a taste of meat AND bun.

Toppings – 5 / 10
I enjoyed the pickled (fermented?) onions but had to take some points off for the arugula – I like the taste of lettuce way more!

Condiments – 6/10
Nothing that stood out in either direction.

Logistics – 8/10
This burger stayed together well, down to the last bite. Nothing fell apart, no soggy bun, etc.

Fries – 6/10
Not too large, not too small, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. The only thing I didn’t like was that they were a little too salty for my taste.

Total score: 44 / 70
