Burger Quest: The American Local


Welcome to another edition of the great burger quest. Today, I will be deconstructing the burger from The American Local. Enjoy!

Meat 7 / 10
Double patty. The meat was fine – not overly flavored or too bland but…there was just so much of it! Voluminous might be an accurate word. I also think the meat could have been cooked a little more…I requested medium per usual, but as you can see in the pic it probably could have used a little more time cooking…

Bun – 8 / 10
Not too thin, not too thick, not too crunchy and perhaps most importantly, it tasted fresh. This was a pretty solid bun!

Burger : bun ration – 7 / 10
This burger just had so much meat; however, the burger & bun circumference was almost 1:1, which is great.

Toppings – 7 / 10
Pretty standard toppings, nothing really stood out in either direction.

Condiments – 7 / 10
I tasted a hint of horseradish which was actually quite pleasant, but otherwise, pretty standard toppings.

Logistics – 6 / 10
The logistics category is where this burger takes a hit. As you can see, this burger has a double patty which is great for meat lovers but terrible for consumption logistics. I would have far preferred either a single patty or a larger burger with a thinner patty. 

Fries – 7/10
Good fries, perfect amount of crispness, good size. They were a little on the salty side, but otherwise, a pretty solid fry. 

Also – I must note, this is a baby-sized burger. For someone like me with the appetite of a 12 year old, this was actually a perfect size. BUT. If you eat like a normal adult, it’s worth noting that this burger is much smaller than your average burger. 

Total score: 49 / 70
