1.5 star rating Very disappointed don't believe the hype
Where do i start? i drive past danny's diner on the way home from work 6 nights a week. i saw pasted on the windows that matt preston from the tv series master chef voted their burgers number 1. so i thought i'd take my girlfriend and try this number 1 voted burger by a guy who's "supposed" to know food??!! from the moment we walked in the door i felt unwelcome. the two guys behind the counter almost seemed inconvenienced by our presence. they couldn't be bothered with a hello or g'day but rather opted for a very dismissive nod of the head! we ask if they had eft facilities and he says no, so we walked down the street to get money all the while excited by the thought of trying these number 1 voted burgers!! we walk back in and were greeted by the girl at the register who was nice enough and pleasant enough. i ordered the double lot and my girlfriend ordered the lot and we got a large bowl of chips to share. with two drinks we paid $28.50. then we waited. after about 10 minutes the chips arrived shortly followed by our number 1 voted burgers???!!! they present your burger on a little bread and butter plate and the burgers are cut in half. first of all who cuts a burger in half? you want to be able to grab your burger by both hands and just muck in!! my girlfriends burger buns were cold the meat patty was barely 120g and was hardly any lettuce in it. the tomato was thinly sliced. the egg overcooked. the saddest yet most important part of any burger is the patty! the only way to describe it is mince with absolutely no seasoning flattened to within a inch of it's life and slapped on to the hotplate. it had no flavor apart from the bloody after taste it left in your mouth. the patty was dry and nothing about it tasted fresh. it's the sort of burger you'd to buy from a tuck shop that has them pre made and sitting in a hot baine marie. for the price they charge for these burgers the patty, in my opinion, needs to be thick and bursting with flavors like onion, salt, pepper, worcestershire sauce cooked medium to medium well. on the upside the chips were nice. this is the number 1 worst tasting, overpriced burger in the area as voted by chef mr.g. either matt preston is a hack and has absolutely no business reviewing and critiquing food or these guys are trying to sully his good name by feeding off the review he may have giving to the store in fitzroy!!!
