Please HELP!!! Need recommendations PLEASE

Really? We have not been in two years because of kids, but we used to go at least twice a month for years and never once found it to be anything less than perfect. Has ownership or the chef changed? if so, I would be greatly disappointed.

Please HELP!!! Need recommendations PLEASE

New Five Guys Burgers Location coming soon!

Have now been 5 times and here are my thoughts; really wanted to give this place a chance to wow me as we have been to many in the US. The ones in the northern states are MUCH more dry than in the south, (maybe southern states allow for lower internal temps, maybe they just don't care what the gov tells them), Savannah GA and Nag's Head Island NC are very close to a "perfect" burger IMO.

Up here though, they seem to take daddy dalton's words very seriously. I too have noticed the grill guy breaking open the patty to make sure it is done to an internal temperature of a million degrees.

The fries were perfect the first 2 visits, (once Cajun and once reg), but the other times were still starchy and not fully cooked.

This last time, I even asked them if they could not cook the patty so much and they told me that it had to by law be fully cooked.

I will continue to visit when south, but for when I am at home, BP and Great Burger Kitchen will be my choices as they will both cook less if asked.

I appreciate that the "doneness" of a patty is a matter of personal preference, but why can we not let people make their own choice?

The menu at Bardi's steakhouse used to say it best in the ordering guide:

WELL DONE, burnt, dry and without flavour

As I said before, internal temp is up to you, but in my opinion you need some pink and or red to fully enjoy.

sorry if I have offended!

Thanks for the Mexican tip

We decided to try El Trompo because of some old posts in these forums. I must thank you all. It was great. We ate a ton and everything was great. We even got some guac to go. Thanks again

Cherries Jubilee in Toronto?

The cjerries are so good at the duncan house it is worth the drive, (not in Scar though, on don mills south of the 401). My wife wont eat them so I take the whole order for myself. also, I have never had a bad steak there, and the misses swears by the salmon.

good luck
