I passed by Brgr Co today for lunch since it was another burger place that came highly recommended. When we first sat down the waiter asked if it was our first time and then proceeded to explain the different burger cuts and gave his recommendation based on how we like our burgers cooked. That’s a good sign. I originally wanted to go for the 8oz burger but based on the waiters recommendation I ended up with the 6oz patty and added aged English cheddar to it. I asked for the burger to be cooked medium since with the 6oz they recommend either medium rare or medium.
The burger arrived pretty quickly, I would say less than 10 minutes after we had placed the order. At first glance it looked pretty good, the bun was the perfect size with the patty sticking out every so slightly. The patty also looked juicy and the cheese decently proportioned. I noticed they had placed the condiments on the side which I appreciate. I personally believe condiments like lettuce and tomato take away from the flavor of the burger plus I don’t like the combination of cold condiments mixed with a hot juicy patty. I quickly took out my camera and snapped my shots before I dug into the burger.
First thing I noticed is the fact the burger was medium rare. I don’t mind eating a medium rare burger or even a rare one but I had originally ordered mine medium and if it was anyone else they might have been upset at a site of a bloody burger and would have had it sent back to the kitchen. With just 3 patty sizes it shouldn’t be hard for them to get the temperature right. I enjoyed my burger with my only comment being that I found the outside of the patty hard with the inside very soft. I prefer my burgers soft all over since I like biting into one and having the meat crumble in my mouth. It’s not the best burger I’ve had and probably not in my top 10 list either but, when I was done with mine I felt like having another one and that’s a good thing.
I’d definitely go back to Brgr co again. The next time I’d probably go with the 8oz patty since I’d love to see how that thick patty would look with the bun. On a side note I thought the interior was very cozy and the service was really friendly. Right now this is my favorite burger in Lebanon but I still have a few more places I need to try.
