What to Look for in a Hamburger Restaurant
Say you don’t have the internet with their endless amount of reviews or any other insight, but really want to go to a hamburger restaurant. There are certain things you can look for based simply on the look, the smell and the menu of a place that give you a pretty good idea about the quality of their hamburgers.
First, excellent hamburger restaurants can quite literally be greasy hole in the wall establishments that you would never think had anything worth serving or selling inside. So don’t judge a book by its cover—in fact, clean and modern burger restaurants usually have worse burgers than greasy spoons. Next, can you smell the burgers? Do they smell delicious? This is an important aspect of the whole experience as well.
Last, are there a lot of people at the burger joint or is it relatively empty around lunch or dinner hours? While this isn’t always a sign, a great burger place will usually have a crowd.
