Review of the All American Burger at BurgerBar – Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Burger Points: 4 out of 5
While driving back and forth between Jupiter and West Palm Beach I have several times passed BurgerBar at Donald Ross Village (just south of Jupiter in Palm Beach Gardens). Wanting to maintain my new hobby of burger reviews I figured it was worth a stop!
Menu Item: The All American. Prime Burger Blend, Lettuce, Tomato, American Cheese, Pickles, Special Sauce. $13
The Order: I ordered the All American as-is but with a substitute of coleslaw instead of fries. Cooked to medium temperature.
Review: The burger came out on a cool looking wooden cutting board. The presentation was clean, crisp and sophisticated. The coleslaw looked beautiful with refreshingly bright colors. Thinly cut orange carrots garnished the bowl mixed with fresh red onions and other slaw ingredients for a well composed look.
The burger had a nice sized patty. It was juicy, well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The lettuce was watery and crisp as if a farmer had just plucked it from his garden. The burger included four neatly sliced pickles along with fresh tomato. The melted cheese was not overdone and proportionality covered the burger.
Now to the secret sauce… I am fairly certain the secret sauce is simply seasoned mustard! Just for fun stop everything and try saying “The Secret Sauce Is Simply Seasoned Mustard” – do it like five times and keep reading…
Okay back to it – while the secret sauce that seemed to be seasoned mustard tasted great (trying to make up another tongue twister) it was frankly a little boring. I will say however that the other items on the menu offer more risky ingredients for those burger extremists out there.
For example – the North County Reserve includes American Wagyu (fancy beef), Gruyere (cheese), Tomato Bacon Jam, Fried Egg – with a price tag of $20. If I am back at BurgerBar I’d likely try the Lone Star – which includes Prime Burger Blend, Cheddar Crispy Onion Ring, BBQ Sauce, Mayo.
Price: This is Palm Beach County – so a $13 burger (or a $20 one for that matter) is not at all uncommon. I ordered the least expensive beef burger on the menu.
Ambience: Somewhat dark, sleek and very clean. Nice place for a burger date. For some fresh Florida sunlight try sitting in the outdoor patio.
Service: I sat at the bar. Service was friendly. Not overly attentive but suitable for a late afternoon lunch.
Side: The coleslaw was a bit too salty. It looked great, had a terrific overall flavor but the salt was a little overbearing. Perhaps it just needed to be mixed a bit more. Still the ingredients were clearly fresh.
Overall: While the All American packed a terrific taste I was a little disappointed with the secret sauce. I completely respect marketing lingo however mustard is just mustard. All of the ingredients were however high quality and fresh. I would recommend BurgerBar for anyone in the area.
The menu includes some really interesting looking items such as Griddled Corn Bread with Jalapeño Butter – yum! Or Spinach & Beer Cheese Fondue Warm Pretzels – what! Honestly next time I’m there I’ll likely skip the burger and just pig-out on all of the Starters and Snacks! Of course that means I won’t have a burger review… Oh the disappointment for not being able to eat constantly.
